I picked this up yesterday for a good price and it was purchased from TC member Sad Sammy who is a top bloke and was a real pleasure to deal with.

Like many of us, I have wanted a vintage 3-speed for ages but never could afford one until this one came along. The Monty is my favourite out of the 4 so when this came up I had to have it and I am so, so happy. :) :)

The kit was imported nib and left like that for years until around 18 months ago when it was dry built. The body was not painted so that was an added bonus ;) The truck has been partly dismantled and for now it will stay like that. I will get it all built eventually and will take great care when doing it and will definitely go box art on this one. :) Will also add some pictures of the actual model soon.

Thanks to all for looking!

you lucky man. it is also my favourite, maybe Tamiya will re-re this sometime soon. if I was Sammy I would be catatonic not just sad.

Thanks sidewaysdave69! Glad its your favourite too and fingers crossed they re-re it one day The only reason Sammy sold it was because he did not want to mess up the paint job or something else. If I had sold it I would have definitely been catatonic
