Part of my ongoing effort to document parts and packaging that Tamiya produced throughout the 90's and early 2000's
Limited and hobby show/event releases -- These are the wheels that were produced in limited numbers and generally unavailable outside of the Japanese market (oftentimes sold exclusively at hobby shows and Tamiya special events) Many of these limited items were not assigned part numbers, and in some cases, lacking a name or description printed on the header card!
Early 49XXX Series Limited Wheels:
49560 2-Piece Spoke Wheel, Metal Plated
49560 2-Piece Spoke Wheel, Metal Plated (Detail)
49559 2-Piece Mesh Wheel, Metal Plated
