TOPIC: Carboot tamiya finds?

Carboot tamiya finds? 2 years 3 weeks ago #50026

I love a good carboot and sometimes I come across some real bargains.
Last Sunday I picked up a king Blackfoot for a tenner.
A few months back I picked up a falcon for £3.

Anyone else love the carboots and had some good finds?

They are usually beaten up a fair bit but then I have the fun of fixing them up and getting them running. :)

No tamiya finds this weekend but I did find an energon unicron for my other hobby of collecting transformers. :)

Carboot tamiya finds? 2 years 4 days ago #50449

Nothing at the carboots for a couple of weeks now but I did find this in a charity shop for £1. It cost me a small fortune in batteries. 2 9v batteries and 4 C cell batteries.
It works but the aerial is missing so is kinda twitchy.

I always look in charity shops whenever I'm passing, but I've never seen anything even vaguely interesting. I guess you guys get there first!
I was at the local "Tidy Tip" (public rubbish dump) a couple of weeks ago and I could see a couple of RC cars at the top of the electrical goods skip. Unfortunately they were out of reach and it would have meant climbing up an unsteady tower of old PCs and video recorders to get to them. I could only see the wheels, but one was definitely some kind of Tamiya monster truck (Yellow wheels with ribbed and spiked tyres, so maybe Monster Beetle or similar).

I've never found anything good in a charity shop before, I just happened to see it in the window.:)
I would have been in the skip after the rc cars like a shot, who dares, wins. Lol
