What models have you built from new kit?

Recommended Posts

I’m sure we’ve had a what models have you owned thread in the past, and lots of us have had lots! But, what about a list of models you’ve made - but from a new kit in the order you made them, if you can remember. In other words, you bought the kit, and built the model. No NIB sitting on the shelves, they don’t count. No NIB yet to be made, they don’t count. No renovations of some old basket case you did, they don’t count.

so mine in order of acquiring them:

  • tamiya holiday buggy (back in 1981/2)
  • marui big bear (1984)
  • tamiya monster beetle (1986/7)
  • tamiya TA04 (2001/2)
  • tamiya tyrrell P34 (2003)
  • tamiya F201 (2003)
  • kyosho scorpion (2014)
  • tamiya Clod buster (2020 black edition)
  • tamiya konghead (2020)

Overall not that many really. Obviously had lots of others that I’ve bought 2nd hand already made.

Good idea for a thread. Here's mine, all Tamiya:

  • XR311 (1981/2)
  • Frog re-re (2006)
  • Grasshopper (2006)
  • Super Clod Buster (2007)
  • Lunchbox (2007)
  • Enzo Ferrari TT01 (2007)
  • Ford F350 Highlift (2008)
  • Wild Willy 2 (2008)
  • Durga (2009/10)
  • Super Fighter GR (Violet Racer) (2012)
  • XR311 re re re (2012)
  • TG10 Mk.1 Lancia Delta Integrale (2012)
  • Fighting Buggy (Super champ re re) (2014)

Again, not that many, but a fraction of the kits and cars I've had or still have. It looks like it's time to do another 'buy and build' and I have a super hotshot in my sights!

Not so easy as there were also used cars I bought and non Tamiya, but here's my try:

58305 Impreza WRC 2003

58500 Sand Rover

58502 Blitzer Beetle 2011

58483 Mini Cooper '94 Monte-Carlo

58643 Grasshopper II

58535 Bullhead

Not necessary in this order.

Lunchbox this time round

When I was last into Tamiya about 10-15 year ago, not in order of building;

Pumpkin, Pumpkin Metallic, Lunchbox x 2, Mad bull, Wild Willy -  What can I say, the best things in life are big and bouncy :P

Scania470, Flatbed Trailer, 56305 Mercedes tractor unit, Blackfoot, Fighter Buggy RX and a CC-01 metal top wide

Wow, neat topic. I've built a lot of kits over the years, so I can't really remember them all, but it's quite a few.

Kyosho Optima

Kyosho Maxxum

Kyosho Ultima

Several RC10s, from short arm to World's 

Several RC12Ls

Several Bolink pan card, 1/12 & 1/10

A Parma Euro Panther

Yokomo YZ10

Kyosho Optima Mid

Vaterra Ascender

Vaterra Twin Hammers 

Various Grasshopper clones

Variety of nitro 1/8 buggies.

Way too many Tamiyas to list, from '85 to present.

I build kits for myself, and sometimes other people have me build for them. There's a bunch that I haven't listed, but I've enjoyed them all. I really do miss the variety of interesting kits. Now it's all race cars or scalers/crawlers, except Tamiya.

If we are talking I bought....

TT02B Metallic Pink Neo Scorcher 2015?

MadBull 2015?

Can't remember the dates exactly on them.

And that's it. Lol.

My TB01 from 2000 was bought as a Christmas present and all my other Tamiya are 2nd hand.

The unique one I guess is my Ultimate TB01 which I bought in bits and pieces to make a complete kit and then made.
