    Agreed! It is a huge factory! Still, who do we talk to or ask to get a tour of these factories (Japan and Phillippines), Tamiya's secret service??…..LOL! I mean, this is something they don't advertise, to my knowledge. A tour of these places would be an ultimate Tamiya experience!

    I have a question that seeing the bodies made me remember…why do all Tamiya lexan bodies have two mold lines across the hood and the tail of the bosy?

    Drives me nuts. Some of the most expensive bodies available and those two ugly mold lines.

    The first I've seen to not have them is the new Datsun

    Guess as they are made from multiple sheets or casts to enable "closed" 3D surfaces?

    The two mold lines are a result of the three-piece molds used for bodies with front and rear undercuts. To make it possible to remove the body after molding, the mold consists of one front and one rear part, with a wedge-shaped centre part. After molding, the centre part is first removed, then the rear and front parts are moved inwards and out of the body. As for the Datsun 240Z, I haven't received it yet, so I should be careful when commenting, but judging by the pictures seen so far, it also have the typical lines, at least on the front:

    Can somebody from Tamiya Cebu please help me get this model: Tamiya LRDG w/Breda 20mm item # 89785 in 1/35 scale. This was made here in our country but no longer in production. You must have some samples left in your stockrooms. I need just one. Its crazy to buy them from the US at astronomic prices.
