  4. Ooh, shiny. :cool:

    OK, so red and white does look pretty cool.

  6. Nice to see Tamiya still has some nice attention to detail.
    Headlight beam pattern is a nice touch.
  7. Not finished yet but couldn’t resist a couple of laps of the garden. Stopped after nearly going in the pond.

  8. Does mint wheel spins and pops wheelies. Easy to flip on to roof though.

  9. I’m sensing that this builds not going to stop here.

    I bet if you post a pic up in a years time you’ve modded the heck out of it..

  10. Or it’s in the shed covered in dust :(
  11. It would be easy to get carried away.
  12. I see you've stayed with the ultra modern EV conversion look instead of the old fashioned aircooled fossil fuel look:D:thumbsup: The only problem, is I want one now.

  13. I may have an air cooled option in the pipeline.
  14. Wanting one isn’t a problem. Go online and order one tonight

  17. At a museum yesterday

  18. Which museum?
    Hotshot topleft and frog middle right were cool. I had the boomerang and later on a supersabre before going schumacher route.

    I've still got my Hornet. A look on ebay shows the part that sidelined it in the early 90s when it went obsolete is now available again due to its re-release. :thumbsup:

  19. Cool.
    Vanessa's Lunchbox was a cool looking van. Used the same chassis as the midnight pumpkin. Front suspension was always the weakest list i thought with the big tyres bending stuff.

    Found this old Tamiya catalogue from the early 90s while i was tidying up.
