great pic thanks for sharing !
I spent hours gazing at all the amazing stuff at Beaties in Manchester .
watching the hypnotic Tamiya Videos for hours ,dreaming of owning any of them .
After a year or two of pestering and saving I finally got one and have been hooked since .
Shame they gave all since vanished !!!

I was 9 in 86 and used to get my brother to take me there (Beatties Bristol) most weekends, we didn't have any money, just window shopping and dreaming, always straight upstairs to the good stuff, i.e. Tamiya and Scalextric. Boring static models downstairs. Great memories. How old r u in this shot tech burp ?
