So How Many Tamya's You Own

Recommended Posts

Quite a few, depends if you also count spare kits for when bits break, I've got in habit of getting 2 identical kits at once as I hate waiting for parts when you need them.

Basically its.

1 X new build shelf queen Falcon, plus 2 & a half ish Falcons needing restoration, one of which is my original from 20ish years ago.

2 X Monster Beetles both needing work, again one is almost 20 years old to me.

2 X TA-01 Escorts (was 3), both work, well almost, one has more hop ups than original parts.

2 X Rover Mini M0-3, one seriously tweaked, the other needing a little TLC.

2 X TT-01 Escorts, one still boxed as never broken a part in almost 2 years, the runner again has been tweaked a fair bit.

1 X Sand Viper DT-02, want to get the MS for spares!

I used to have a Hotshot Mk2 which I'd love to replace.

Also got

2 and a bit X Team Assoc TC3's

1 X Team Assoc TC4, my racer

1 X Schumacher Couger (needs rear mount)

Also had

Kyosho Optima Turbo

Corally C4

I'm sure there was others but thats all I can remember for now!

Once I only had one, how I loved that Hotshot!

That was over 20 years ago!

Now the lastest count is 21 NIB.

Sadly only one runner.

Same old story I guess, No time to run the one I do have and no time to turn any of the others into runners!

Woe is me! :o

4 tamiyas, 3 kyoshos, but the tally was a lot higher than that several years ago.. And peeps at the track i used to went reckon I keep throwing weird cars on the track..

oldies goodies, most of them are easily over 15yrs old, and still rather competitive. Heck, I'm driving a 12yrs old pos that will still give newer cars a run for their money.

Oh, gosh... I had a spreadsheet somewhere with my inventory in it. Must be nearly 40 cars, all Tamiya. A bit disturbing to count them all really.

The model that I have the most examples of is the Frog, of which I have 5. 3 original, and 2 re-issue.

Currently half-way through building an original Hot Shot, and restoring and hopping up a TG10 Ferrari 360.

I have quite a few NIB I haven't gotten around to building yet, including a Lancia 037, Dyna Storm, Hilux Hi-lift, Durga...

When I first read that I thought you had [5.3x] original frogs and [2x] re-issues and I really had to think about that. :o

Now I KNOW its time for bed....

5.3? funny you should bring that up

No one's mentioned that - once you reach a Critical Mass, RC cars can start reproducing too.

eg.

you buy 1 Frog... it comes with "spares"

repeat a few more buys

before you know it, you've got enough spares to build another 1-2 cars

Hypotheses suggests around 5-6 buys is the critical mass... so "5.3" is pretty spot on!! :o

Kind of a high-school algebra flashback, huh?

5.3 (frog) = 2X (re-re)

Solve for X

Anyway, my household tally is 6 Tamiya, 1 HPI, 1 Parma, 2 Associated, and 1 little cheap Chinese toy monster truck that I chase the cats around with.

Heh. I did look over the post after I submitted it, and thought it looked odd - but ah well. And I probably do have parts for another 0.3 of a Frog... :P

LOL! I have a Mini-Z with several bodies (couldn't resist the Martini Porsche 935!) and about 5 original Bit-CharGs as well come to think of it.

I really dont have a clue how many I own. There dotted all over the house :lol:

My showrooms shows 53 but i've loads not listed -- must get it upto date. I'd guess at another 10 to 15 not listed not including spare cars / part kits etc.

And thats just the Tamiya stuff.... I really shouldn't count em should I :-)

I have enough currently as of now I only drive 3 (EVO IV and 2 King Cabs) in my showroom. Of course I wish I could bring back every Tamiya and other makes I ever owned-COUNTLESS/PRICELESS!

Starting to get bored...
