i may be placing an order for the full kit for this build. i like how intricate the kit is and have also built an rc truck in the past that i really enjoyed until i was unable to get replacement parts for it.

this will be quite a challenging build for me, as looking through the official build thread there looks to be a lot of painting and placing decals/water transfers. neither of these are my strong point at all! in the past with models ive totally given up with both of these and ended up with a bare plastic model looking a bit of a mess.

cant wait for it to arrive and get stuck in. ive had a good read through all the posts here and well aware of the upgrade to the shocks part way through the build and other bits and bobs.

this will be fun

Dont forget that you need two types of paint, Acylic for the display body and Polycarbonate type for the Racing body, which is the TS & PS aerosol ranges in the Tamiya range.

Well after speaking with model space customer setvices they have very kindly let me buy this kit at the current sale price and pay in 3 installments! I have already made the 1st payment so expect the delivery in the next week or so, and cime payday at the end of the week ill make the 2nd payment.

Thanks for the heads up with the paint types tomick. When i go and visit a local model shope im also going to get some of that water slide decal setting liquid too, bottle of after run fluid and any other bits that will be required/come in handy. My shopoing list is growing lol.

I really want to give this my best effort so wont be rushing the paint at all. Thinking of buying a few cheap random lexan bodies just to practice on 1st.

I notice there is no members build diary here for this so ill start a seperate thread here in the general area. Probably wont add too much.

whilst waiting for my order to arrive i have been doing a lot of reading through all the posts up here, one question crosses my mind - how do we actually prime the engine in order to start her up and begin the break in process? i have a few nitro cars and they all have some form of primer device - one has a push button on the fuel tank to squirt some fuel in the carb, another has a primer bulb in the fuel line and so forth, but i cant see anything like that with this kit. would it be worth buying an inline fuel filter with built in priming bulb?

i have also seen little inline exhaust gas coolers, i presume these fit in the fuel pressure return line from the exhaust back to the fuel tank? is there any real advantage to adding it?
