Tamiya Fair 2009 Pictures: Sand Scorcher 2010 & new release surprises

58459 Datsun 240Z East African Safari Rally (DF-03Ra Chassis)
84111 Tyrrell P34 Six-Wheeler ’76 (w/lexan body, F103-based like 49154))
58452 Sand Scorcher (2010)
58452 Sand Scorcher (2010)

Due to requests received, we can confirm a few details not clearly visible in the pictures:
Taillights: Opaque like on the Monster Beetle/Blitzer Beetle
License plates: Stickers (not 3D like the original)
Mirrors: New design (weirdly enough less authentical!)
Door handles: integrated with the body like on the Monster Beetle/Blitzer Beetle

    Very nice surprise with the Datsun 240 Safari Rally and the Tyrrell P34…

    Very wicked and well done Tamiya;-)

    @ Coligny: Yes, not surprisingly, Tamiya has used Hummer wheels for the 240Z shown at the fair, but although they look acceptable, we indeed hope it will get more correct wheels before the actual release! After all, there are still several months left to the release.

    My Good Friend overseas says that the nose cone will be slightly different and that it is a Blitzer body
