I think this color Toyota came out fantastic, especially with the bronze wheels.

Excellent!

Thank you for the kind words
Tamiya PS32 Corsa grey I believe is the correct name for it.

Thanks buddy!!
I am hoping for the lights to arrive this week so I can make a film with it during the next weekend, but I dont have much faith in the US postal services atm, nothing ordered from the US is arriving in reasonable time.. Even packages from Australia arrives before shipments from the US..

A little off topic, anyway..
In three weeks we refurbished(is that the correct name for it?) 10, yes TEN rooms..
We were planning on doing 4, we thought that repainting the bedrooms and changing some floors would be good enough..
But then friends happened.. We got the keys for the house the 1st of july, and in 21 days the house was filled with friends wanting to help out almost every single day..
So instead of making a little shine on some bedrooms, living room and some light touch-ups on the bathroom we ended up with full renovation on 10 rooms.. Ok, not totally 100% reno the whole thing, coz' we're changing the floors in the living room and hallway next summer..

The biggest change and biggest expence tho was made in the kitchen. We were thinking that we'd wait until next summer to redo that one due to the costs.
But the bank actually said that "wouldn't it be a good idea to fix the kitchen before moving in..?", OH YES!! So we did..
All I got for pictures right now is a pair of before and after on the kitchen, if you want to I might take some new shots of the rest of the house to show what's going on up there..
But here we go
This is the kitchen before..

And after..

We also got rid of that door in the corner to make room for some more cabinets..

I'm quite pleased with how this worked out..


Aaand some topic-related in the end..
Behind my garage I got a little area I guess might be pretty sweet for rock crawling, it's a shame that it's too crowded with weeds and small trees atm, but that'll be cleaned out next spring time to make it a little more crawler-friendly...

That is an awesome transformation!

Is that a dual oven or microwave/oven combo?

I like your kitchen a lot!

Thanks for the kind words, Benp.

It's a combo, we never have the need for two owens. So it's a nice solution for our use and we're pretty pleased with how it turned out.
I will not post pictures from the rest of the house, but the transformation are just as pleasing in every single room, you get the feel of beeing through a time machine.

Sorry lads!
I'm still too much hung up in the new house.
I also happened to buy myself a new car, a Pick-up this time, but more about that one later..
Many years ago I owned what now has become my dream car, it was an Audi V8 quattro and looked like this..

I often find myself staring at the picture above and thinking "how could I be so stupid to sell this car..", and the value of that car is just shooting for the stars the last decade, I sold mine 11 years ago.. :p
But last weekend, while surfing an Audi-forum and particularly a V8 quattro-thread, one of the users posted a picture of his new RC-kit.. I asked him where he got it from, he gave me the url and 24seconds later "Thank you for your purchase"..
And look what came in the mail today!!

And the reason this is not totally off topic, it's 10th scale!! So it might just fit perfectly sitting on the trailer behind one of my TRX's!!
Hah, I love internet!!
And I still love my house, my wife, my new truck and everything around at the moment..

But I really really hate this covid-thing.. I've been fortunate to not have to leave my job for the covid, but I've had to send home some of my guys because Mercedes Benz shut down their factory, and that effects us because we mainly build our trucks from MB chassis..
Just a few weeks ago I finally got to take everyone back in to work. But now look what's about to happen'.. I might just have to let them go, again..
F**k this sh*t, I'm sick of it..!!

But as long as we stay healthy by keeping distance, washing hands and not doing stupid things I guess we're going to get through it.. Hopefully..

So stay safe folks, we cant afford loosing guys to this pandemic, we can't let it breake us down!

Wow.. I totally forgot I bought that Tamiya V8 until I logged in here..
That must be a sign of having too much to do at the moment..
Since last time I haven't done anything to any of the bodies or chassis, but I've bought a new cabin for the TRX-6. I dont remember what type it is, but I know I thought it was cool as F...
SO now I'm dealing with -21 Celsius outside, nothing I cant handle but I dont feel like going out to play
But it wont be too long until I'll finally get time to do something in my RC-bunker, I'm really looking forward to it!

So, happy new year people, see you again soon! PS: This christmas was the first christmas in three years I've not been forced to "celebrate" christmas and new years eve in hospital, YEY!! It counts for something! hehe
