WHATS IN THE BOX - Tamiya Midnight Pumpkin RC Kit

Tuesday, 11 November 2014 15:16:46 Europe/London



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.

How great does that stand look? It took me hours to assemble. I’m not joking. After stocking Revell for many years, we’ve decided to get a hold of all Tamiya paints that we can and have them in stock too.

How to Use Tamiya Spray Paints


Cans of Tamiya spray paint are extremely useful for painting large surfaces. The paint that Tamiya use is a synthetic lacquer that dries and cures in a short space of time. Each can is 100ml of paint, which is enough to fully cover two or 3 1:24 scale sized car bodies.

Combining Different Kinds of Paint


Tamiya spray paints are not affected by acrylic or enamel paints. So, that means that after you spray the entire assembly, details can be added or picked out using enamel and/or acrylic paint. By combining three different kinds of paint, the decoration of plastic models really becomes a lot more effective.

The full range of Tamiya Spray Paints are available on our website to purchase, and can be viewed here.

All the best,
