I've been selling some things on eBay recently. Finally accumulated enough to spring for one of those ROCHobby 1/6 scale radio controlled Jeeps. Just placed the order through Amazon a few minutes ago.

Amazon had a coupon offer for 11% off the price, which covered the price of the batteries, which are not included. Nor is a battery charger included. Nor is the canvas top included. Nor is the accessory trailer included.

LondonRoadHog aka Colin influenced my decision by answering a number of "n00b" questions. I've never owned an R/C vehicle. Expect to see some Jeep races this summer once the weather improves!

Oh man!!! I get the blame because of answering some questions, and chucking some pics out there... Typical...

I can take it...

Here's mine. Still waiting for lockdown to end to give it a good test:

Hey Colin,

That's a nice jeep! I wish I had the money for one.

In the second photo, is that a Jason Statham head sculpt?

In the second and third photos, it looks like walls and a room box.

If so, can you tell me how you make them? I have an idea on
making some from once when Cheridoll gave a tutorial on her
website. I hate to hear she is gone.

After my hiatus from the hobby, her website was gone. But I
have a recollection on her tutorial, which is what I'm planning
to do. Just waiting for some warmer, drier weather. A friend of
mine has tools for cutting the wooden frame, but I have to
figure out how to do the routing in the wood.

Also, I'm curious, are you still living in lockdown from the virus?
Things seem to have loosened up a bit here in the US. I'm on a
list for the vaccine, I'm not sure how long I will have to wait.

In the meantime, I would think lockdown or not, wouldn't you
be able to get some photos or video in your yard?

Just curious. But hey, that is a great RC!

Daryl

Yeah, losing Cheridoll was a great loss for our 1/6 community, she was such a helpful lady!

Daryl, @TNshooter (not sure the ‘@‘ works on this forum)

Yes, that is a Jason Statham head sculpt. He is my Spy camp Commander, Ex-SAS, of course, his name is Jason, following on with SAS rules, no surnames...

Yeah, in the other images, there are some walls, and a room box. I’ll see if I have sufficient images to give a little bit of a how to, and a behind the scenes look of them. I make everything collapsible, and of course, right now they are both collapsed down as I am in the middle of making a new diorama.

I don’t want to load this thread with my dio how-tos, so I’ll find an appropriate place for them, providing I have enough images to give a good description. But give me a few days to sort that all out.

Yes, we are still in lockdown. The situation is improving a lot. Plus over 50% of the adult population have had the vaccine, at least the first dose. I had mine three weeks ago. Only side effect for me was a aching arm for a couple of days. My wife had her’s two weeks ago. The kids won’t be able to get theirs until around May/June time, I’d guess. Schools and colleges are now back in session in person rather than remote. I think the non-essential shops, and services are due to start at the beginning of April, I believe. I’ve not really been keeping up with the news. If all goes well, I think they are saying that everything should be back to normal around June time... I am up in the attic most of the time working on Dios, or photography, so I am nicely occupied.

You probably don’t know my yard/garden. The back is all nicely finished, but is very small, I am in London after all. The front is mainly drive and grass. Limited, but exposed to everyone to see what I am doing. Not really enough room for the RocHobby Jeep to get around in. I want to go to Richmond Park, or Bushy Park and give it a real test. But that’s probably a 40-60 minute drive around London, and not something I am prepared to do in the current circumstances. It can wait.

Hey Colin,

I had never seen a Jason Statham sculpt before, which was why I asked.
I think that is cool.

As far as room boxes go, I don't need a heavy tutorial. Just the basics.
I know some do them differently, I have an idea from what I remember
that Cheridoll had on her site. Using a wood frame with a groove to fit
the foam board in. I was just wondering if you did it the same way.

And if not, a basic description.

I don't have a large yard, and it's completely surrounded by chain link
fences. There's nothing I can do that nobody wouldn't see, and no good
backgrounds for photos. Plus having the neighbors dogs barking at me
the entire time. (Sigh)

Aside from the lockdown, it sounds like everything will be returning to
normal for you about the same time as here. Except the vaccination for
the children. They are talking next year for children under 16.
I don't want to talk about the leadership here. I just hope it gets better.

Back on topic: INCOMING... eventually... I hope... VSToys 19XG63 Tifa 3.0 Goddess of Fantasy seamless action figure:

https://giantoy.com/products/pre-order-1-6-vstoys-19xg63-tifa-3-0-the-goddess-of-fantasy-action-figure

This is a pre-order, with an estimated shipping date of April through June, so who knows if or when it will actually ship? This must be a second production run, as the first run sold out while still a pre-order. As I am not a video gamer, I had no knowledge about the character or figure until seeing photos BlondeActionMan posted here on the forum of a Tifa 3.0 figure that he acquired.

This will be my first new Action Figure purchase of the year; that is, the year in which I had decided I don't really need any more figures.  Embarassed

(EDIT: as of July 2021 this figure had not yet been re-stocked, so I cancelled the pre-order. Sad )

I've got Tifa on order as well Dave. Can't wait. I do blame Dal for that one...

But, I've been waiting and waiting. Didn't have any idea on date, and was surprised that they weren't in stock when I ordered. So pretty gutted that I've had to wait so long. I ordered it, as soon as Dal showed me his... Sad

Yes, the YMT040A with blue (or purple, can’t tell in the listing photos) hair. I’ve had that head in my eBay watch list for weeks, maybe months, and that stare finally got to me. Plus, that head sculpt reminds me of one of the futuristic babes from the old Gerry Anderson television series “UFO.” I do not yet have a character in mind. This is purely an example of “because I want one.”

Or, more accurately, one can never have enough MP40s.  Wink  The purchase was a direct result of your influence, occurring while I was revisiting some of your Flickr posts a few evenings back.

It's Blue, and the UFO TV series was exactly what I was thinking of when I first saw the earlier release with purple hair and which is still available at Giantoy.

The purple wigs were part of the female uniform for all women on the moon base, though they did not wear them when on Earth,

That show had some great scale dio action sequences, back before CGI came in.
The clothes were always on the weird side, being "designed" by Sylvia Andersen herself. 
Why the same complicated make-up for all the moonbase women?

Hmmm, long while since I saw the show, but I do own the boxed set so I could probably have a quick recap to refresh my memory.
