Been in the Hobby since 1989. My first car was a Tamiya Frog and Traxxas Radicator(Hmm!!) Ever since then I have had an itch that I can never satisfy when it comes to collecting Tamiya RC. I'm trying to build up my collection to include ALL Tamiya Model RC between 58001 and 58100. This will probably NEVER happen!!! My collection consists of over 100 Tamiya RC Cars and Kits. I recently did some clean and orgainzing of all my models and I can not belive the stuff I have collect over the years. Seems like every year I'll collect a particular class of cars. This year its the Tamiya Rally, WRC and GT-4 cars. My Favorite RC Models are all the F1 and Group C cars. Especially, the Mazda 787B. Recent addition to my collection:
