I have fond memories of the hornet as probably do many others. The hornet was the first car I had from new and built. I remember getting it back from the model shop and realising that you didn’t get radio gear with it (I didn’t notice that on the box I was just looking at the pictures!) so I ended up striping down my sand rover for the radio gear. I still don’t what I did with the sand rover after that. I got this hornet a while back now before the rere hornet I brought it as a nearly new in box but with some of the parts missing mainly being the wheels and tyres which at the time I brought this they were quite hard to get hold of and they cost me quite a lot extra from Japan. The blister packs had been opened too so I decided to build this one.

Sweet! The Hornet is such an iconic buggy in the Tamiya catalogue. That's a very nice example.
