Like many of us out there, the original Tamiya Hornet got me addicted to this hobby way back in the 80's. Now I figured it's time to start collecting the different incarnations of the Hornet that Tamiya has produced over the years hence the addition of this TamTech-Gear Hornet. I purchased this in October 2019 through Ebay from a seller in Sydney, Australia for $174.00 USD which I think is a pretty good deal considering its condition, its discontinued status and that the original price on the box is $330.00 USD. I had been casually looking for a nice example for the last couple of years but they don't come up for sale very often. This one fit the bill and therefore resulted in a highly contested auction of nearly 30 bids and a lot of activity so I had to come in last second to win it. It came with the original box, radio, charger, battery, a couple of small tools and all the paperwork which has Tamiya Europe printed on the bottom so that's probably where it originated. It's in like-new condition with almost no wear and tear which is why I marked it as new-built. I'll purchase a few spare parts and then lightly run it when I get up the courage. Thanks for looking and hope you enjoy.

Nice TTG Hornet. The spikes on the rear tires are hardly worn so the previous owner was very careful. The TTG's are good runners.
