5 years tamiyablog.com – 300 posts & 1.000.000 page visits – win an RC Tamiya Sand Rover 2011

Update 14.11.2011: Competition results posted

Update 1.11.2011: Competition is closed now, results will be posted on 14th November.

Exactly 5 years and 299 posts ago this blog was started by a small group of Tamiya fans to gather interesting information about our favourite company in one place, but we never thought it would be such a success with over one million page views in this time. Therefore we would like to thank you for your continuous and growing support, Tamiya INC. for keeping up releasing an enormous amount of superb new models and thus keeping us busy building and reporting about them as well as all other sites who sent or allowed us to use their material. In the past years we have received several offers to get sponsors and add advertisements, but we declined and decided to pay all the running costs ourselves to guarantee being as neutral and objective as possible. Something we hope you appreciate.

For the celebration of the 5 first years, we decided to give a new Sand Rover kit (also paid by ourselves) as the original version was released almost exactly 30 years ago (22nd August 1981) and also 5 years after Tamiya’s first RC-car and also because of being kit number 58500. To participate, please send only one of your own made Tamiya related photos or drawings (maximum size 300 kilobytes) together with your full name, age and country to the address shown in the below picture until the 31st October 2011. The team of tamiyablog will choose and present the entries they liked the most on 14th November 2011 and one of them will win the 58500 Sand Rover kit. The kit will be shipped to the winner’s address from Japan or Hong Kong at tamiyablog’s cost, but the receiver may have to pay for customs or taxes depending on his/her country’s import laws.

We are looking forward to your continuous support also during the next 5 years!

The team of tamiyablog.com

    Congratulations! I hope you’ll keep up the nice blogging for a while, I check it almost daily! πŸ™‚

    One question though: How do we submit a picture for the ‘competition?’

    Tamiyablog is a reliable source for fresh information, for valuable content and objective opinions: all contributors deserve this success.

    I completely read over that part and didn’t see the email adress in the picture, lol! I kept wondering why there was no email adress in the article, but that explains it πŸ™‚

    happy birthday to tamiyablog, and thanks for keeping on posting the news on new tamiya products, as well as the research articles on old tamiya kits too. tamiyablog always gives very good answers to my questions. πŸ˜‰

    btw, looking at the boxart pictures of the old and the new sand rover together… in the new one, it looks weird and un-real to have the huge dampers towering behind the driver’s seat. the old one looks better in terms of realism.
