where did you get it and how much did it run?

I got it at my hobby shop. They retail for $210. I got a little discount, I've known the guys there for 10 years.

 

It's very touchy. Not finicky, just very precise. it's a whole new feeling you have to get used to.

Hey Simon,

You got a message!

Why would the shop that has great deals need to be a secret?

Please let us all know.  Thanks. :)

Yeah, I cant get enough of the 86 kits,  I know have of them unbuilt, one thats built and one more on the bench, plus the two Tamiya ones I built, I am still not done buying them :lol: I have a problem I think

 

I am trying to take advantage of the week Yen right now,  everything from HLJ is cheaper, including shipping,  believe it or not, the shipping was $45 for EMS, If I was paying attention, I could of used FedEx and saved $5, well, I thought I selected FedEx, but no :angry:

Are those 86 things right hand drive or left?  Maybe both?

Jim, they come with both RHD/LHD dash 's, and the one with the white car on the box comes with Scion decals to make a US version

Actually both of the 86s are identical other than the wheels (as you point out in your review) so they both can be made into Scions.

I am returning to the hobby after a 25 year hiatus.

 

I just bought a 1/16 AMT 1964 Ford Mustang.

 

This will be my daughter's 4-H entry...and I, um, er....she wants to win.

 

We are going to make this a rusty junker, Doc Cranky style...but I have a loooooooong way to go.
