    Default A Little HotShot Deux..

    Wasn’t too long ago I decided to clear out some old RCs to make room for some new ones and help fund the opening of my own hobby shop here on Vancouver Island. I must have sold 40 Tamiyas! I do like Tamiya kits, good quality kits, everything is always as it should be. They are also good 1st time builds for people. Yes I certainly realize there's far more scale options now etc. But who doesn't like a kit build with the kid.

    In any event. I had this HotShot 2 kit sitting around after the clean out and just had to put it together. Changed up the stance a bit vs. stock and added some real power. I’m happy with the paint job and just waiting on some light bucket options to finish it off.

    Then to the beach to see how high of rooster tails I can make with those paddles!

    On a side note. Do I just need to turn down the resolution on my camera when I take the pictures? Will that allow me to post bigger photos?

    Nice classic! For some reason I thought you were from Quebec, or maybe I am confusing you with another Eric? I can imagine those paddles with real power will be wheelie happy!

    Great looking ‘Shot!

    As for larger photos, our hosting only allows for a certain size to save space and ease downloading for all. I’ll look into the settings in the new year.
