It's funny that you mentioned Tamiya. I'm working on two different Tamiya kits right now. One is the new 1/10 scale Toyota Hilux. It has a very realistic ladder frame, oil shocks, low and hi range 3 speed manual transmission, and the coolest part, you can lock the front and rear differentials remotely on the fly. It has an led light package as well. Fun stuff. The other is a 1/16 scale R/C Leopard Tank with full sound package, gun recoil, engine sound, the works.
Tamiya products are pricey, but they are the best, and worth every penny. Anyway, I hope all is well on your side of the pond. I see you have snow. Rather unusual to see that. Talk to you later.
