Thanks mate! I love it. It's funny - I hadn't seen any around for sale, but after I grabbed this one they seemed to be plentiful again...

Bought from usa

Hey, thanks mate. I have to agree with you on that point. Didn't know the SRB's when I was young and first started with Tamiya - but being older now (37) - I can sure appreciate the quality of these kits. As real as it gets!

Ha! From a member in Oz who took very good care of it actually!....

One of my top kits. love it!

Thanks Klausen! Probably my favourite - I really think this and the Egress were the best looking buggies Tamiya made.

Very nice kit. so well designed, love it

Cheers mate. They don't come up that often (since I've been looking anyway) so I pounced!

Where it all began for me...
ladies444

That's an awesome birthday present! My bro was kind enough to get me one for Xmas a few years back. That pretty much started me collecting again. Such a cool car, and I feel a bit under-rated as far as Tamiya buggies go too. Def has it's place in any collection.

Awesome kits mate. You are the Hotshot king! Very envious of them.

Great condition, not bad for 29 years old
ladies444

I haven't seen one as original/ new as this so far since I started collecting. Pretty cool to think it has sat untouched for nearly 30 years.

Thanks guys. moffman - I agree. Back in the day I remember friends taking about the Porsche more than the Celica. Almost as if the Celica was the poorer cousin or such. But these days the Celica seems rarer - from my searching anyway... Then again I guess everyone has a kit(s) that they find extremely rare, but to someone else not so...

Now I think of it - that rarity may be legitimate; there is probably a direct correlation with number of kits produced versus collectible ease/ difficulty. Maybe Tamiya made these in fewer numbers.. Anyone have an idea or stats/ knowledge around these things?

Gold ones for sure! Looks very tough! Makes me want to build mine now, seeing yours look that good.

I think you may have discovered the best looking buggy/wheel combo going around. I wonder what else gold SuperShot wheels look good on...

Yankee enduro 80
Outta Control

That is one of the coolest buggies I've seen. Great job! Must have been hard to find parts if you had to fabricate them from scratch.

Fantastic photos mate. As realistic as it gets. I wish I could build 'em to look that good...

Another late night internet purchase - sold
ladies444

Yeah the silver box... I was thinking about it today while painting walls (and maybe this is super obvious to everyone on TC except me, but anyway) it was the first No. 2 of any Tamiya kit. So Tamiya opted for a different look for the fact it was a first (of sorts). Anyway, just a theory.
Thanks for the nice comments guys. I'm happy with it, certainly very cool for it's day and even now.

Getting rarer to find... - sold
ladies444

I'm not so sure about a re re of this one... I think in some ways it would be good to leave a certain few of the old kits as originals only. Just to keep some true nostalgia around some of the iconic kits. I know it makes some of the really expensive kits affordable again which is a good thing in most but not all cases - (if you happen to have paid top $ for a vintage kit for example).
