Über mich

Mein Bild
Willkommen auf meinem Blog! Ich heisse Kai, bin Baujahr 1974 und hier geht es um mein Hobby: RC (radio control), also ferngesteuerte Modelle, hauptsächlich Autos und Boote im Elektrobereich. Meine Leidenschaft für RC begann 1981 und endete zunächst 1990. Dann habe ich 2004 mein altes Hobby wiederentdeckt und seitdem begleitet es mich mal mehr mal weniger häufig durchs Leben.

Kyosho Optima - Sand Super wheels

I think these are the nicest buggy wheels ever made! Even if the spikes are a little worn but with new rims and some tire lettering they just look great. This set will fit my Optima when restauration is finished. Of course they will never be run. If you ever come across one of them or a set, please get in contact with me :).

Tamiya HotShot 2 (from 1987)


 
 
I finished restoration of my childhood 4wd runner today. This is my personal 'holy grail', as it's one of my original cars from back in the day. It was abused in the years '87 to '89 and now restored to descent condition. I still have the original box and manual, but most important the car still has its original RS540SH motor it came with. It's missing the mechanical speedo, so if you got one in good condition, I would certainly take it. The bodyshell is in original condition from the early days. My personal favourite forever. It now sits in the display cabinet next to my Marui Galaxy.
