My prayers go out to his family. He was a top notch builder and seeing his Hummer in RcDriver was a testament to his skills.

Truly is a sad story of a nice guy, lots of talent, just to short on time here on this earth. to Tim and hope that he's found painless peace in his new place.

of course the fenders will need some trimming...

I'm trying to decide if I want to go for the "rusty, 3 different color body panels, beater" look or make it a nice resto build...

the body set in this one is amazing!!!! I've always been a countach fan and Tamiya did this one proud!!!

KC was very inspirational to me and what blows me away is that we are the same age, he accomplished so many awesome builds during his short life that i cant even imagine building some of it during my lifespan. Sad to see a great man with this much talent silenced and not being able to see another great build from him. HE will be sorely missed R.I.P. Tim...

We've moved all of his build threads to one location so that they are easy to find.

Wow the man had talent... What awesome builds... The flat black bug is what got me to repaint my Ax10... Flat black... He will be missed by all... Godspeed Sir...

If God needed Dale Sr. #3 for a driver... He needed Tim (K.C.) for a builder...
