Today's haul

I have been waiting for a long time for this rerelease by Tamiya, the Jeep Wrangler on the CC01 chassis. I still remember seeing the body sets for these guys go for $200usd on Ebay probably a year or so back, the kits were probably around $500-600usd. For those that don't know, the special thing about this kit is the detail styrene body. I can see myself buying a few more of these in the future. THANK YOU TAMIYA FOR THIS RERE!!!

Another cool thing about this purchase is I think I am one of the firsts on the internet (world?) to get this kit since I've been searching for the whole week on the boxart of this kit because I was wondering if they kept the original art or went for a newer look. I am glad they kept it original. This one I have right now will probably stay unbuilt until I have secured a second one. I will just open it to check out the contents (pics coming soon!)

Along with the Jeep Wrangler, I also got a Hummer on the TA02 chassis. This one I've been wanting to get for a long time. This one also has a nice styrene body. Will I build this one? I am not sure yet. If I manage to get a second one, maybe I will.

Hmmmmm...have been a while since I got some Tamiya goodness...


  1. you manage to build them, I will enjoy to wait it hahaa

  2. After openning the kit, I don't think I can resist not building it LOL. Build will commence on May 1 since I have exams until April 30.

  3. Nice jeep and hummer! Are these remote control car? Will you spray the body? In the past, I only have the Tamiya racing cars and Bigfoot vehicles runs on AA size batteries.

  4. @Dennis: Yup, these are RC cars and I have to spray paint the body. I am thinking of airbrushing them this time because my previous experience with another large styrene body and spray paint didn't come out too nicely.
