Hi guys, l have been thinking about getting the Holiday buggy 2010 for a while but they have been out of stock but back again now and l picked up one from time tunnel models for £79 and that's a bargain for what you get! Hopefully there is some HB fans looking at this? Back in the day the Subaru Brat was my first ever tamiya in the early 80s but the first tamiya l ever saw was the original Holiday buggy! I bet you guys all remember the first tamiya you ever saw? it was my dads friends car! I can't remember much about it now and why my dad had it? Probably because my dad was an electrician and the car did not work so he was maybe trying to repair it for his mate?? Too long ago to remember now but l definitely remember thinking as a young kid wow how cool it was and amazing its got a cowboy too! and that was my impression with it not even running it was just stationary Iol l could not stop looking at it and pretending to make it go like a toy car along the ground!....Brilliant memories and you could say the start of my Tamiya journey!
The original Holiday buggy was classic back then and still is today! The original beach buggies the Holiday buggy and Sand Rover! So scale looking and of course the cowboy made it even more iconic!
Well this is the rere obviously but the bodyshell and cowboy figure is what its all about! and as l will be running this the DT-02 chassis has become a bit of a classic itself so a great merger old & new!
I can't wait to get stuck in to this build! Simple enjoyable and a little nostalgic!
Thanks for looking in guys and comments and tips welcome. Cheers James.
