A long time since I posted anything. I was too busy with finishing my house because it is for sale at the moment. I bought this truck a year ago on a local auction site and plan on finishing it with more detail than stock like adding an interior etc. Just wanted to show it, it is coming along nicely and this Tamiya deserves a nice finish, definitely one of the best Tamiya's in my opinion :-) And I allways like finishing an interior: so much work but so relaxing!

I just love the look of it really pleased with it what kept me busy last year.... not that nice everywhere wheel test, I had lying them around

If you liked those pictures, you should see these...

I like the top photograph; it's not obvious what the reflecting surface is and it distorts the truck image very nicely.

Personally I like the red wheels on this, The silver is really nice nice but the red wheels mean business. Its like wingtips for the office and red boots for the mud.

Couldn't agree more. The red rims look cool. I got mine back in 2006 and just added an EZ run brushless set up that performs very well. I've also been looking to complete an interior and was wondering which one to order. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

@R/CVET: I used the standard rally interior from the Delta etc. I just cut of the end because it is too long. Besides that it is a perfect fit: the body width is stock so the interior fits easily. A touring car interior with one driver would fit it as well I suppose, those seem a bit better available. Just give it a go!

Long time no see from you (you did some other homework i see!) Little great work you did on that interior, looks so good with all those details. Those red wheels look even so good as the other ones. Whats the plane to move, what place to our country!!
