I was gutted when j-man's blinged up Ranger came up last year for sale and at the time did not have the money to bid on it. Out of the blue a similar looking model appeared on eBay at the end of last year with the guy ending the auction at 1am on a Sunday morning. I waited up drinking plenty of Coffee to keep awake and could not believe my luck that I won it. The guy had seen j-man's Ranger and bought the parts to copy the look of it. Unfortunately it has the dreaded front wing tabs broken off and not confident to repair it myself. Out of the blue this stunning shell came up for sale on another RC site and had to have it. At first I thought it was a Ranger shell but turns out to be a Super Blackfoot. Shell has been professionally painted at a car paint shop and certainly stunning in the flesh. Recently fitted repro decals which I prefer compared to the plain look. Thanks to SRB Bloke for painting the brand new set of wheels. Comments welcome as usual.

As it came

What a superb Ranger, definitely without doubt one of best looking Tamiya and this one is a beauty.

I have these also, love the roll bar, but can't decide whether I like the bull bars enough to fit them! I repaired a broken tab on mine-not too difficult, just takes time! Its painted metallic grey and unfortunately I've lost my silver decals and TC don't sell them anymore (

Do do those drive as good as they look?

Thanks for the comments. Can you believe I have never ran a SRB in anger. I find the vintage electrics a nightmare trying to get them to work. Most I have done is just a small run in the garden with a re-release Scorcher to check it worked ok. Going by all the shells with broken front wing tabs, I have seen its best to keep the big bull bar on. Stickerbod is the man for decals or some half decent ones on eBay. Checking the Sellers feedback is telling whether they are any good or not. Just got to solve mounting the shell now as all the bodypost holes have been filled.

Thanks again. It was after seeing RCdomi's Ranger that I realised I had yet to show mine. Forgot to add some other extra's to it before listing it. Doh

Best bet for body mounting is to use a velcro system if there are no mounting holes
