Bought for the parts to help project 1.
Just received but looks in quite good condition apart from the thick dirt
More updates when stripped and cleaned

UPDATED 04/07/2019
Stripped, cleaned and tried out the newer paint release of TS-83 metallic silver.
Requires a backing of black, really looks like the bare metal look!

UPDATED 07/08/2019
Stickered up and painted driver
Still looking for new or great condition E and R parts to finish.....

UPDATE 16/09/2019
All finished

Fantastic! Both the Striker & Sonic Fighter never really featured on my Tamiya 'want' list up until quite recently, I thought they were a little odd looking, but now I have new affection for them - yours looks like a particularly fine example & a real credit to your hard work - spraying it silver was an inspired choice!
