It is once again interesting to see that the top ranking models are models that many people outside Japan claim to be “unwanted”, “without a market”, “wrong choices” and so on, which proves that Tamiya’s choices are spot on for their biggest market, which is the Japanese one. Also the best placed RC model is as low as 4th place in the total votes ranking underlining also the importance and size of Tamiya’s static section, which is the one that made Tamiya as big and successful as it is.
