Hello everyone and Happy New Year! I've been after a Ranger F-150 for a while now, whilst looking around i found Time Tunnel Models here in the UK. I obtained the body parts numbers for the Blackfoot 3 and received them through the post this morning. At the moment i have temporarily fitted the body to my SS chassis along with front cut down 915's and i think it looks ok. I'm on the lookout for another SRB chassis if anyone has one to restore. The part numbers if anyone is interested are below, i didn't bother with the roll bar, lights or the decals.



Blackfoot III Bodyset


Glass - 19005372 - G Parts


Grill/Bumpers - 19115325 - J Parts


Roll Bar - 10445076


Roll Bar Lights - 10115086 - L Parts


Tail Gate/Driver - 19000249 - H Parts


Body - 10335128


Stickers – 19495684



Received my new chassis from RallyeBaz today all in original condition, cheers Barry! I've stripped it down and given all the alloy to a guy who will aqua blast the parts. He quickly had a go and showed me the results, wow, brand new again! I mounted the Blackfoot body on the chassis and it looks like i'll need to modify it unless i've missed something obvious!

Not going to go too mad, i'll make a list of parts i need and make it into a runner.

Looking good. Tempted to do this conversion myself if Tamiya never re-release the Ranger.

Cool,
I really like these and am becoming a bit too addicted to Tamiya as I have just bought a shell for one of these that needs restoration. I realized I have got a set of ranger wheels not Brat ones but the deeper ones. Too many projects draining my time and money!

This has all the makings of a classic project. Look forwad to seeing it develop.
