I went through mine the other day...... wrote a list of the few that I need to complete my set.... then lost the list!

Got a few extras too, should list them up as trades.... or maybe I'll just send them to you, Rob....

I had numbers 1 to 59 with doubles of 1 to 7. I sold them to a certain Mr Chang from Victoria in 2003. I wonder if he still has them. They were in top nick too.

Yep. The first issue of RCCA featuring the Bruiser, RC10 and Hotshot was with the other magazines too.

    Hi,

    I was wondering is there an issue that had a test of the RC10 with MIP 4wd conversion?

    It would be in the vintage section in the last couple of pages.

    I can't remember what Aussie magazine that I bought that it was in, it could have been Racing Lines.

    Dave.

    Good to see that it was someone I know that snapped them up.... I looked at that auction, and would have given you a run for your money, apart from the Ballarat pickup... just about every issue I needed to complete my collection was included, too :cry:, but I couldn't justify the 8+ hour return trip...

    My doubles aren't that many any more.... numbers 11, 44, 45 and 49 complete, and numbers 7, 8, and 10 with at least the middle pages missing....
