    Fun but tricky first project

    Firstly, excellent customer service from Wonderland Models and I received this kit within days to France, so thanks for that!

    This was the first radio controlled car/kit that I have ever tried to build. After reading the instructions I thought it would take me weeks to do, but actually to build the entire chassis and have it ready to roll, it took less than two days and around 6-8 hours work. All being well the next step was to work on the body kit, this is where I ran into a few problems: firstly, cutting out the wheel wells was extremely difficult, so its best if you can buy specialist scissors for cutting curves/corners. Secondly, you have to use Tamiya PS sprays for the polycarbonate shell, I did not realise this before I purchased it, so I had to go back and buy these seperately.

    As I write this review the last thing to do is apply the decals which is easy enough. The car runs really well and turn/corners fantastically. As this is my first tamiya/RC build I cannot compare it to anything yet, but I would definitely recommend this kit to anyone thinking about getting into the hobby, or in fact, anyone!
