This was a common sight in my bedroom as a young fella, I used to wrench on my cars on the floor on an old sheet. Back then I used to eat, sleep and dream RC cars, my walls were covered in Tamiya posters, even in this pick you can see a folder alongside my bed that was filled with RC magazines. This club has taken me back to this time of my life, and it is awesome.

Yep, I can still remember every week after mowing the lawn, riding down the Toy World to buy a single bearing, than coming home and straight to my room to pull the Tamiya apart. Great times!

Fun times back then ! & we didn't know it as we do now . How simple life was with all the hopes and dreams we all had .

They are mostly an Australian RC magazine called “Radio Controlled Cars for Dirt and Track”, and probably a couple old US RC Car Action mags. Yep I still have them all. Actually, they would make a good showroom entry, will get some pics and show them in here

Great pic mate. I take it the sheet on the floor was more for not loosing small parts in the carpet than protecting the carpet
I remember my bedroom carpet being like that but just dark brown, an absolute nightmare for finding small black painted model kit parts!!

Nice, back then, any place can be our work bench... now with old age we need proper work bench and good lighting ??

Great shot mate, it really conveys the feeling... ONE passion!!
I remember my room looked pretty similar when I was a kid. Only difference is, in my case it was Mini 4WD back then and not RC... but still Tamiya!!
Nice entry.
