Highly amusing, light and robust. The, er, charismatic handling and the way the gearbox slaps up and down lend this model an almost organic quality. Like some small forest-dwelling creature scuttling for the nearest cover.
The first Tamiya RC car that I built from a new kit. Thanks to the re-release I've had the opportunity to paint it a bit better this time.
Modified with an extra gearbox pivot thanks to info obtained from this site, and also some homemade diff-locking plates for running on soft sand.

Very nicely done. You got to love the simplicity of the Hornet/Hopper chassis. I did one some time back with a locked diff.
