  1. Quite right Daz,I still rate the B4 as a decent bit of kit too. I missed a really nice B4 FT that went for £60 last year,no electrics,but it hadn't got "many miles on the clock",just slight rust on the turnbuckles and CVD's,it was still wearing it's box Proline's,the rears were naffed but the front wide's were still pretty good. It'd have certainly made a great stablemate for my Cobrat B3.
  2. Yeah,scary when you think that fifteen years ago you could have picked up a CAT(or any other top notch racing buggy)for under £40,no one wanted them,the touring car years were at their height,but another five years on,the vintage racing scene was getting going and prices started to rocket,for example,a tidy Optima Mid Custom or Custom Special will set you back to the tune of £350 for a good runner,a mint "shelf queen"in box top colours will hit you for £450-£500 plus......... To be fair,the price isn't too bad really,most that buy one will be racers so they'll have the electrics ready to fit.

    I bet. I remember the "works" VFTS's on the RAC Rally in the late 70's early 80's(they were actually 2105's then),they weren't a 260 brake Escort RS1800 2 litre BDA, but were pushing around 150-170 from their 1.6 litres and "barked" very well indeed on sidedraughts and a good pipe.

    They also go quite well with a bit of a tune-up:

    Ooh I dunno about that Col,maybe so with MB's products but Lada/Moskvitch ones........................ That Pz IV looks to be in pretty good nick externally though.
  7. As Darren knows(we've discussed this in pm's),I too went the RC buggy racing route in the mid-late 80's starting with a Tamiya Boomerang and various mods to it before going onto Kyosho products and their brilliant Optima Mid's. It can be a very expensive game,but great fun and very,very competitive.

    That Japanese tank looks just the right size for RC...................................... Great pics there gents.
  9. Didn't know Dr Who lives in Scotland..........................................
  10. I know Borth,if you approach from the south on the coast road you have to go down a pretty steep hill. My Dad was a modeller(and free flight aeromodeller too),so it was pretty much all Airfix for me with the odd Frog thrown in (76 was a big year for me,nabbed a Frog Sea Vixen)and occaisionally "exotic" Revell kits.
  11. Yes,I see your point. I'm a jam first bloke myself(when in Cornwall and all that).
  12. Very,very sweet John. Takes me back to the day my Dad zoomed he and I off to Manchester when one of the first -100's in BOAC togs came in,boy did it seem HUGE back then to a twelve year old. I can just remember the BOAC-Cunard 707's and VC10's at Manc too,that old BOAC livery was so nice.
  13. I can see a car slathered in jam and cream in your future Darbs........................................ Incidentally,where does the "new"Mrs Darb stand on this subject?(not right on the jam'n'cream scones obviously,make a mess of her shoes and all that)
