OK, not the mailman but I picked this up at the best RC shop around these parts called The Zoom Room it's almost 2 hours drive from my home but has the best price and selection and staff. To be honest I was surprised when I said I would purchase the kit that he did not take the one off the shelf but got another one from the stock room. Not to many places would carry this kit let alone more then one, At least I thought so. Price was unbeatable, even online once you factor in currency exchanges and shipping. :y:



And just as beautiful on the inside :)



I also grabbed the parts tree for the Super Clod because Tamiya did not include the blue rod ends as the orgianl had and the box art too. You will also note the Tamiya magazine that I have been saving for many years that reviewed the Egress when it came out. B)





So guess I wanted this for along time, never really thought I would do it, their terribly expensive but I thought about it for a long time, checcked all my options and they were still the best price
. My friend I was with was reather shocked because I don't normally buy such things and he knows I am a "vinatge guy" but the rere is very good, he bought the Avante when it was back out and I was impressed, they really did not change much, well OK, the Avante rere is really more an Egress with a back dated body and wheels, but really really nice.
I might change the front uprights to the cast ones, just because I have spares and might even get the MCI decal sheet to fix the one change they made. Unlike the box art the model features the new Tamiya logo on the lower body sides. But that is down the road a piece yet as I have much to do first.
I will say for the record that......... this will most likely be my last kit for awhile,
OK, OK you can all stop laughing at me.....:laugh:
From somewhere out in the wilds of central Ontario.
.......you build what you like, I will build what I like........it's all cool......

Today my boxes from Lars arrived.
I think Andy’s stuff to Aus was a tad quicker.
They spent 9 days in Coventry !!
Then Oxford ???

Just some quick shots for now, more for Lars benefit, to show I got them.

Cheers Lars.
