If you own one you will know what Im on about :lmao:
Just spotted some very rare stickers for sale on their own if you need replacements etc
I emailed to ask if it was the complete set, it includes 2 sheets of stickers, and the window masks too.
He had two sets, I got the other on a Buy it now, NEVER thought id see any of these for sale!!
Now I can get on with finishing the Turbo replica :bananasmi (I only wanted them for the lights, window frames and masks etc)





You'll have to fight over these ones though as its not a B.I.N. auction :p

You can still buy brand new kits from Japan on ebay but they are about 100 quid delivered.
To find a bodyshell on its own is near impossible, to find the stickers is even rarer!

Radio gear is irrelivant as its not specific to the model, NO tamiya kits come with it. They are all bundles created by the shop selling it.
Like I said, keep your eye on ebay.com and they appear quite often, same as on www.tamiyaclub.com

Infact heres a complete body box set:

Cheers Mart.:up: Several guys have asked me in the past for these, and not really found many completely built. I guess not everyone wants to build one, but prefer to buy one built already. I may buy more, build them myself to propested buyers customs tastes, ie, to look like their pride and joy:p

They must be mad, building it is half the fun! :)
I know :D If people are prepaired to pay me for buying them and building them, and then customising them for them then its a bonus :)

Yeah, usually you have to cut them out, then stick them on the inside before you spray.
Make sure you are in a very patient mood when you try to put them in, its a ******* of a fiddly job to get them perfect due to the limited access!
