The Grasshopper II is one of Tamiya's iconic radio control car kits from the late 1980's.

It was an enhanced follow up release to the original Grasshopper kit.

This re-release (2017) kit features a number of updates while keeping largely faithful to the original model.

Its streamlined construction process makes this kit perfect for less experienced users and R/C veterans alike, while separately sold option parts can be used to enhance the model.
