News • Vettel retiring; Porsche buying half of Red Bull

Forum Topics - Thu, 07/28/2022 - 15:46
Big news day in F1. Sad to see Vettel go, but it will be interesting to see what he does after. I can totally see him dabbling in other series, but could also imagine him working behind the scenes to improve the sport.

Not sure what to make of the Porsche news. Sounds like they'll become the engine manufacturer, but I guess we'll just have to wait and see long term if it's good or bad.

Wanted • Looking for a Ford Escort rally 1/24

Forum Topics - Wed, 07/27/2022 - 05:27
Hello

I am looking for a Tamiya/Domino Ford Escort to convert into 1998 spec, at a non-highly inflated ebay price
It may be started and, hopefully, located in EU, otherwise customs taxes will kill it... I am located in Portugal

Thank you guys!
Best regards

Work in Progress • Tamiya Lous 107 1/20 Studio 27 decals and a lot of masking

Forum Topics - Sun, 07/24/2022 - 12:39
Inspired by Badi and his post about his excellent Lotus 107 with painted livery I thought I'd share my take on the same project. Been working on it for a year or so now.
It's a curbside build so body will be secured down hence no engine detail.
The seat and steering wheel were coated in microballoons and painted red to match my reference showing the textured finish.
I use Zero paints exclusively in my builds and finish with Zero diamond finish 2K clear.
The body was initially painted with Zeros equivalent to TS16.

Questions • Lotus 72C

Forum Topics - Sun, 07/24/2022 - 10:53
Hi All,
I’d like to ask a question. I’m just finishing the 1/12th Tamiya Lotus 72D J.P.S. I’d like to convert one of these to a 72C gold leaf lotus. Now the thing is I would need a different rear wing and the air induction box. Is there any company out there that makes these parts??????. Any information would be great, many thanks in advance. Brian..

Questions • Wanted: Tamiya 1/12 Ferrari Enzo

Forum Topics - Sun, 07/24/2022 - 04:51
Hi all,

After one of these for my Dad who is keen to build it, so trying my luck here.

Understand prices have gone up on this kit so willing to pay a reasonable price just not the high ebay prices.

If anyone has one they’d consider parting with for someone to build please send me a PM.

We’re located in Australia.

Thanks all

Chris
