We also specialise in 1/10th touring car parts for Xray, Tamiya, Schumacher, HPI, Hot Bodies etc

Both Colin and Len are keen very active fliers in both helicopters and aircraft, in fact they are the only family that can say that both father and son have been British National Helicopter Champions. Colin is also a keen model car racer. He also runs the Track Side Shop at MARITIME RACEWAY KENT which is the Biggest Indoor Event In the South.


Colin is a keen Modeller and has had a very successful competition career. He has been Hirobo European Helicopter Champion, 7 Times British National Helicopter Champion and has represented Great Britain many times in World and European Helicopter Championships. Placing 10th in 1993 in Switzerland (Still one of the Highest Placed British Pilot in a Helicopter World Championship)
In 1988 Colin Flew a 23cc Petrol Radio Controlled Scale Helicopter from a Full Size Helicopter across the English Channel from Calais to Dover to raise money for Children in Need Charity raising just short of £10,000 .This was as a result of being asked by a West Essex AeroModeller Stan Mcgee if he thought it was possible. It was Stans Brain Child and he asked if Colin would be interested! The rest as they say is history...........

BUGGY WARS Chatham Dockyard
