last batch of youngtimer 1:5 bodyshells


Here is a first issue of the RCbodyShop newsletter.
I have to move my Youngtimer 1: 5 tools. I take the opportunity to make a last batch. These prints are made only after early November bookings.
You can place an order on the website without having to pay it immediately. The order will be confirmed by the invoice I will send you at the beginning of the month.
Regards Stéphane Heyberger
