Lets start rolling, I got Tamiya Grasshopper,HotShot,Pajero,Frog,Falcon...all in trashy condition
currently interested in collecting the Fast Attack Vehicle and Mountaineer and saving up for it very hard
Iv got an old tamiya tgx mk1 in good condition including two original tamiya bodies for it. Apparently there used to be a racing series for these cars? Bit before my time I think. Iv been told its a rare car by a few people.

Tgx is rare indeed, seldom see any in this thread, would be good if you can share some pics here

Default Original Fox

An old Fox which I sold to my buddy 10 years ago, recently he thinning his RC collection and put this up for sale, decided to buy back from him and give it a touch up. Replaced cracked rear arms which are identical with re re, and painted the wheels , hinge pinned the arms, touch up the driver,repro decals, unfortunately drive shafts are worn and almost impossible to find new or very expensive. This will grace my shelf .

Default Hotshot II

Got this oldie cheap, but so many cracked and missing parts. The cost of restoration quickly pilled up and it cost more than a new re re hotshot now. it's done aesthetically now, but still waiting for drive train parts to arrive before I can give it a run prior to shelving it.
