As I love the Tamiya re-releases to try paint schemes and modifications I wouldn’t dare on an original, I chose this time for the fantastic Rough Rider / Buggy Champ a scheme which tries to capture a bit the innocence and colourfulness of its time. Hope I managed it at least a bit, anyway it will be just a fun runner and bodysets are now easy and cheap to get.

Public talk with Tamiya developers about several vintage subjects like Porsche 934 development concept, the idea of sandwich tires, relation between wooden mold and design, the US debut of the Avante, the beginning of TRF, Frog chassis frame, suspension of the Hotshot and concept of the Rough Rider.
