Share this model:
I don't post much any more, not due to a lack of interest just down to a serious lack of any real time. So out of the blue why do I pop up and make a post about a random model with just one bad photo?
I rediscovered this while sorting my loft out.
Its not the first model I ever owned, that was a sand scorcher but it has its place in club history all the same.
Summer 2001 ish, I think, the sand scorcher was still in a dusty box somewhere in my mums loft not having moved since the late 80's. We had a stall on a carboot at the local school and the family next to me were selling this. I hadn't touched an RC model in a decade by that point. It was a few quid so I bought it for a bit of a laugh. It was surprisingly fast and really got me thinking about my 'lost' scorcher which I then had to go and dig out. By that point I was completely bitten by the hobby again, then I discovered ebay and the rest is history.
If it had not been for this random purchase, then TC probably would not have existed. Getting spares for these things is harder than any tamiya - lol. Guess it will just have to stay a wreck.
UPDATE: just found this entry again while looking for one of my items with only one photo on it. So thought I'd share again. Its still in the loft, probably even in a more sorry state now!
