    About the motorcycles (sorry that maybe not so relevant to this hobby show)… Tamiya had made numerous 1/6 & 1/12 precision models of bikes, many innovated RC cars, and a lot of 1/32 racers. But I am puzzled that throughout the years Tamiya did not make a RC bike, or a motorized "junior" bike model (like the 4 examples below)… Or had Tamiya actually attempted to make one in the past?

    Hi, I finally got some information about the "motor" for the old 1/70 Apollo. Recently someone sold this old model at ebay:
    http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=250486244131&ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT

    The seller wrote in the description:
    APOLLO COMMAND MODULE kit by TAMIYA!
    – Rare motorized 1/70 kit!
    – Kit has both Command & Service modules
    – Old kit, no date found on box or instructions
    – Box is open, cellophane has been left on to protect the artwork, box 9/10
    – Complete with instructions, parts still SEALED
    – Motorized – suspend it for simulated flight! (Parts for suspension included)
    – Hinged Module panel allows detail viewing of Service Module interior
    – Hinged door in Command Module allows interior viewing
    – 3 seated astronaut figures included
    – Molded in white, gray & black
    – Accurate decals

    I still can't figure out what "suspend for simulated flight" means, but at least that gives me some clue. BTW, this old kit was sold at USD 203.5 :O

    Hello, we also had seen some auctions of it lately, "suspend for flight" means you could hang it on the ceiling and with its motor it would "fly" some circles, this was quite common for 60s-70s toys.
