An eBay purchase from back in January 2020. Only a few years ago I managed to get my hands on the Thunder Tiger TA02 conversion kit ready to mate with a TA02 donor chassis. It's still listed in my showroom, but I ended up selling it on and soon regretted it as these are very rare. However, this kit popped up on eBay at the start of the year. It's an 'all in one' version that includes the original conversion kit with ready built gear cases, but comes complete with all the Tamiya TA02 parts to make a complete converted model, plus a body set. It would have been sold partially built, and needing to be completed. I love these quirky conversions of Tamiya classics, and this one will be stripped down as I don't think it was put together quite right, and then I'll have some fun rebuilding it. What I could do with finding is the original instructions for the Conversion Kit, as that broke down the build of the chassis to all component parts, whereas the manual I have with this starts with a part constructed chassis.
