the Blackfoot was my first true R/C love when i was a kid in the 80's. it's been the memories of that great truck that have driven me most since i got back into tamiya RC's after my dad passed away as a way to reconnect. when i got this in the mail today from ebayer 1689johns i could see all the hallmarks of a person who had as much love and respect for this truck as i do. the packaging was almost religiously perfect. once open, the truck was partly disassembled for travel. the wheels - which looked like they had never touched the ground - were all in the original wheel box. the bumper and body mounts were all in the parts box with original blister packing. if i had to guess, this beauty was built recently from an original vintage kit. it's just too clean and perfect even to have been a shelf queen all these years. unboxing it and reassembling it almost brought me to tears. i felt like i had stepped through a time machine and taken my childhood truck right off my dad's workbench after we had finished building it. unreal.
