Hi all 1 month 2 days ago #71657

Hi everyone, my name is Nick. Im 42 and in the UK. Im new to the forum but not new to the hobby. During lockdown my passion for RCs was reborn with the help of Youtube (mainly Glenn @ Tamiya Legends) and viewing all the posts on here. 

I've already done a few restorations on some old 80/90s Tamiyas (bigwig, Boomerang, Escort Cosworth) and done some more modern builds too including some custom Tamiya trucks. Having just won a rather rough Porsche 959 on eBay, I will probably need alot of help and advice along the way. So thought Id best stop lurking and say hello to you all.

Hope to chat to you all soon.

Thanks
Nick

Welcome nick. The 959 is my favorite. I am restoring/rebuilding its sister and still miss some spares. But the 3d print makes miracles.

Thanks for the welcome all. Hopefully the pics below works ok

I have alot of photos of my projects on my  Instagram  but here are a couple that are complete or in the works.

A before & after of the boomerang restoration


Maximum Overdrive Tamiya Truck replica...you prob have to be in your 40's to know this movie.

Another movie from the early 90s, see if anyone can guess what truck this will become....

I think that armored truck is from Universial soldier? 
Great work! 
Styrene or 3d printed?
