Default Tamiya TRF511 Re-Build/Re-Store.

Hi all,

For those who are interested, I thought I would do a complete Re-Build/Re-Store of my TRF511.

I have been collecting for a while now a lot of new in packet parts.

These are,

TRF Complete Screw Kit including Tamiya Blue Screws
New Chassis
New Top Decks
New Complete Blue Parts (the complete 511).
New in Packet TRF 511 Shocks
New wishbones
New Diffs
New Belts
New centre slipper
New in packet Tamiya TRF 511 Original Body and Undertray set.

To name a few.

Once I get the chance, I will do a complete picture step by step build.

Hi suparajicon,

Yes, some of the parts from you, but most from all around the world

Hi Mark....wondered where you had disappeared to after selling your Associated, and PR, kits..😟
I can see know why you needed the funds...those TRF parts don't come cheap..😉......and you have obviously been travelling the world collecting parts..!
Looks a great kit...will follow your build with interest..
