Thanks guys.
It is from Tamiya. My local hobby shop had a box of old Tamiya stock and I found 1 clear shell in it.

-That is one of the nicest and most original paint schemes I've seen.
Did you paint the sheet metal look? There is a company that sells wraps for SCT's and I believe they have one that mimics the look of a fighter plane. Yet yours looks really really nice. Do you have more photos? -perhaps some in color too?

edit: (looks like I had trouble copying your photo)

I see the TRF Works Damper Set for M-chassis(#84318) is showing Discontinued through Tamiya USA... Is there an updated set or what are people switching to?

Thanks,

Anybody know which inserts are used on the 1016 TCS premounts (S-Grip Radials)?
All Tamiya says is "Firm" which is not one of the insert types they sell.
1016 seem to be out of stock so I am trying to build my own simulated premounts for practice.
