Traded a Thorpe diff gear and couple other hard to find items for this super rare Tamiya hand painted RTR body. When the opportunity came up I jumped on it. Have to figure out how to get that glass-like finish on the next body build. Now I have to put a new chassis underneath this one.

1 1 2 1 1 1 1 2 1 Yen price tag isn't as painful...

James- I liked your featured romp in the sand, albeit sans battery. I have to get a runner body so I can enjoy it in its natural element without flinching when it bounces around.

Thanks Kev. As my wife allows limited rent time on the current living room table the garage ultimately will have to find a more permanent space.

Just buy take-aways and keep the table for your models . I'm sure that would go down a storm with your wife -

Great job on the paint and yes you got the glass finish down to a tee!

Kev - Lol. And plastic fold-up chairs so the the nice ones are always available to RC admirers and fellow TC guests.. sounds like a recipe for divorce. And I can't live out of these cars.

Lol. Basket you've done some beautiful resto work in your showroom. The satisfaction of brining back to life vs buying in pristine condition is definitely not the same.
