WHAT'S IN THE BOX - TAMIYA MIDNIGHT PUMPKIN RC KIT

 

After years of dabbling in the lower end RC (mainly kid’s models) we have  decided to make a return to Tamiya Rc Kits and Pre-built RC Models. This is very nostalgic for me as I remember as a 16  year old kid selling these in The Model Motor shop in stillorgan shopping centre, that was over 20 years ago! 

 

We received our first shipment of RC Kits and Pre-Built this week, all are up on the website. Tamiya RC is one of the most reliable and robust RC models on the market  but in the event of a breakage, all spares are available to keep you up an running.

 

To give you an idea of what is involved in building a Kit I thought I'd do a 'What's In The Box" with the very lovely Midnight Pumpkin.

It may look a little complicated but tamiya produce some of the best assembly instructions on the market. Most kits require paint but this kit is pre-finished in a lovely black/chrome, all you need to do is apply the decals.

To match the stunning looking body you have a super strong chassis, built to last.

After you are finished oodling the chrome body your attention will be drawn to the massive, soft monster tyres, these guarantee great off-road fun

There are lots of nuts/bolts/screws but the instructions ensure that A. they will all be out in the correct place and B. you will not be left with a pile of let over pieces wondering where the hell I went wrong!

Finally, If you want everything you need (except the 8aa batteries for the transmitter) I highly recommend buying from the Combo Deals section, they include everything you need to start racing.
