This châssis was common to a few other Robbe models... Someone proposed me to model it, I did not opt for it, but the option is still opened...
Should I consider this?
I buy kits to build and ru(i)n them :-)

Here is my Mercedes, which is missing some of the small pieces. I did round up the chrome kit for it, but still missing the lenses.

I don't think it would be a hard model to make at all, it's very simple. I just don't think it would be very popular either.

I did not even know that there was a buggy version... I knew about the Robby range (there was quite a bunch of bodyshells versions available at that time, all as RTR if my memory is correct)...

It'll jam the boys pretty good as is. I'm just updating some older and mismatched stuff in my truck. While I was at it, I figured that I might as well step up a notch.

Earlier today, I ordered a Kenwood Excelon head unit and all the adapters and such to go with it. I considered a touch screen model but decided to stick with something more familiar.

I actually didn't need another one- I have one in kit form that was missing the box. Now I have a complete kit in the box and one for the shelf haha. I do have the "drive tuning kit" upgrade that includes a 540, a diff and new gears as well as the "suspension tuning" kit that includes bearings along with front wheels and trailing arms since stock they didn't even have bushings :shock: It's a weird car in that it's definitely "hobby grade" but built like a "toy grade". I also have the Mercedes on the same chassis and it broke a rear shock mount sitting on a shelf with the wheels off the ground. Eek.
Broke the shock mount ,wheels raised on the shelf , that's just careless man ! So no running video coming :lol:
If a jobs not worth doing then its certainly not worth doing well.

Is that a beach buggy vacuum form buck in the background ? Just realized I should have been drooling over the motors as well !

Thanks. Don't want to be greedy, but I hope I can beat you to a good deal on some matching rear rims too. :wink: :lol:

Yes, Chris sent me that Manx mold. It carries a part number and fits a Mini T but was never put into production
