Nick Mcuk's (growing) Tamiya Collection 4 years 1 month ago #35261

So there is the collection up close and personal.

On the final cars the Lancia 037 and Peugeot 406 ST need the bodies finishing

The Mondeo, Escort Cossie, 037 and 406 all need 2.4ghz RX units and ESC's fitting too and some final fettling.

All my cars get run and used...I don't believe in having them sitting on a shelf collecting dust ;)

Oh and its not just 1/10th toys that I am into....

This is my 1988 fully restored 205 GTI 1.9 and my 2001 Grand Cherokee 4.7L V8

It is all original and fully restored by me. I am the second owner.

I have a second 959 and 2 celicas basicslly making one mint of each then keeping the other bits as spares

High level of resto. it is a pleasure to see strictly stock little bombs as the 205 unpirated by disgusting tunings....
Do you have got some picts of the celica ;)

:laugh: no more space on the sofa ;) if you want, mine is enough large to adopt a 959 or a celice grB :whistle: :lol:
your boxart bodies are very nice and look to be very detailed ( the sand scorcher body especially)

It's not quite box art but it's close and it has my own personal touch. I do like making them a variation of what they should be. The pumpkin is my original one from the 80's

Lovely collection...and very good job.

You've done an exceptional work on the 205 ! It looks like it's comming out of factory...well maybe better ! I've seen some rolling out of the Mulhouse factory and they weren't as shiny as yours ! Congrats !

Hmmmm i don't see any Bruisers/Mounty's on your collection (yet) ??:P :P :P
