Did some shopping today.

Post by walfre »

Went to my neighbour town today to the only local hobby shop (20 min drive), just to get some UM-parts for my Hot Trick Ultima.
I've been browsing his old stock many times before, but for some reason I didn't buy anything except some Lazer, Triumph and Ultima parts and hop ups before.
Anyways, I got a whole bunch of SST parts, OT wing mounts AND a pair of Option House Dunlop tires.
Of course I got the parts for the Ultima as well.
I only paid 30 bucks. 8)

Very cool. I've ordered a number of parts for my project; about 50% of them have come in the original package. It is so cool to see something that old in the original wrapping.

Yeah!
Somehow you really don't wanna open the package at all. But when you do the smell is unbelievable! Vintage smell! 8)

:D Yes , you are right. What a luck to have your " Dealer " 20 minutes to drive.
I was wondering what kind of shop this must be. A hobby shop where you can buy such great, old stuff ? You are enviable.
The guy in the only hobby shop in my area does not know anything about things which were older then 5 years. :evil:

You mean my pusher. :lol:
Well, yeah, he's great! It's like traveling with a time machine. The man sits on his chair. The same clothes as he wore 20 years ago, the same attitude and his untouched vintage parts boxed away so nerds like myself can browse it.
If you ask him a question and have no idea what you're talking about he just ignores you! :lol:

No, the Hot Trick's is from various sources. Mostly ebay. Alot came from Prince Steve here on the forum.
Still looking for some parts though. I wont stop until it's completed!
