TBH I'd quite like that old skool Futabu TX, that & the Technipower motor probably make it worth the minimum bid of 30 AUD :)

edit: @ stingray - you've driven worse :P

:laugh: Jonny, I still drive worse. (Just look my 1/1 C4 VTS) :blush:

45 GBP + 7.50 GBP UK post BIN would have been a price on the bargain side of good prior to the re-release (Montero wheelie), even now it's not too bad, especially with a complete Acoms mk.2 radio set + spare TX, even if one edge of the battery tray has been butchered ... No, what makes this noteworthy is the lashed-up body posts & the state of the body - which appears to have been in a demolition derby - then painted in camouflage :silly: / :sick:

I've got one of those transmitters (with a matching Rx) in pretty good nick if you're interested JR

If you can't fix it with a hammer, you've got an electrical problem mate :)

Thanks Martin, but hypothetically thinking I might like one does not lead on to being convinced I'd actually want to pay for one TBH, especially as there's absolutely no information on the history & evolution of Futaba radios; not even anything to cobble together the lineage. I mean I guess I could start by making assumptions based on their similarity to Acoms products & the various design cues (, so:)

Acoms mk.1 (Existence of the "Medallion 2" implies a "Medallion"?)
mk.2 Futaba "Medallion 2"
mk.3 (this one?)
4
5 Attack-R (Chrome)
6
7


But I got bored _really_ quickly :whistle:

On the TL01 we have here a really rare special edition of the mabushi 540:
The rusted version: especially designed for the rat hot rods :silly:

This on could have gone in the "interesting" thread thanks to the extensive chassis repair/reinforcement, or as it's about to be stomped on by someone with only 4 toes - but the rather optimistic storage location mentioned in the listing title means Its more at home here.

"Dusty loft find"... only if the house was demolished & the car pulled from under a pile of roof tiles :silly:
