TOPIC: New member saying hi

New member saying hi 1 week 4 days ago #57234

Hi, im quite an active member on tamiyaclub and never even know this site had a forum!
I have had lots of vintage tamiya over the years, sold them all 10 years ago and recently started again. Back up to 10 already!
Most recent purchase is a 58008 lp500s. I found this forum searching for info on these.
Seems to be a few that have been restored on here and somewhere i saw some interesting stuff on casting parts which may well come in handy as i think a few small body details are missing.
Im still waiting for it to arrive, ill start a thread on it when it gets here, just saying hello for now :)

Welcome to Tamiyabase!
I've done a few castings of hard to find vintage parts, mirrors mainly, so let me know if you're looking for something to be made.

I will, thanks.
I think it needs 1 mirror, i exhaust and a wiper. Might need a wing but that depends if i want to paint the wing or not. Ill know more when it arrives. No idea if it has the front bumper piece or the rear lights either but thats guesswork at the moment.

Ive wanted one for 15 years, pretty excited for it to turn up!

I just recently sold my original boomerang and an original kyosho tomahawk.
My previous collection included m38 wild willy, the first series of F1 (love that jps lotus!!!!!), a super champ, original monster beetle, a nikko dandy dash, an original ultima, heavily hopped up carbon ta03f and loads ive probably forgotten!

For some reason ive never owned an original sand scorcher!

Those are some beautiful cars! I'm especially jealous of the Vanquish.

Oh yeah!

The vanquish has been lowered and has carbon fibre top plate, g11, shock towers and switch bracket that i drew up and had cut.
I do have ball diffs and universals from the rere egress but havent felt the need to fit them yet.
