Massive respect to Tamiya , they got me into this all those years ago.

Circa 1986 , ordered a Grasshopper from my mums Janet Frazer catalogue , paid her up 1.39 a week.

I fitted 4 bearings to the rear axle for 7 pounds!

Then the downward spiral of Visa dom ensued.

Certainly brings back some memories ! My mates older brother had them and we used to go to school on the bus looking at the Tamiya catalogue, it was a like a bible when you were 10 !

Had a Fox and Clod Buster, fond memories :wub

Ah if only my lottery numbers would come up. Like the non box art colours on some on these and notice there are 2 Countach LP5000 versions. I had the black one but loving the yellow one.

Was a Falcon for me, fond memories. Seems that Tamiya and in the UK the shop Beatties was responsible for getting most of us oldies into this hobby.
