High-quality finish is no longer region of Art

Carefully painted parts of the scale model kit, tastefully layout. It is the parts panel series that we commercialized as a fashionable 3D interior. Of course it is not “just arranged in painted parts without assembling it?” Place parts which are not necessarily flat on the sandpaper laid on a glass plate and bond them to the acrylic board of the base after creating bonded surfaces one by one. We are completing it many times over the assembly. In addition, the parts are repeatedly arranged repeatedly. So it is not too much to say that the finish is called art. Directly produce rooms and garages.

Prepare the full size layout data decided by rearranging dozens of patterns until you agree.

After painting the parts, put sandpaper on the glass plate, scrape the back side one by one to make adhesive surface.

While paying close attention, paste the parts according to the layout data.

Since parts are three-dimensional shapes, further modifications are made from various angles, such as arrangement balance and color tone of each, to determine final specifications.

Dual structure wood frame is designed exclusively.

Use familiar embossed mats in paintings and posters framing. It is an important item that makes product spread and depth.

Embossed mat embossed Tamiya mark under the center. A mark with a three-dimensional feeling exudes a high-class feeling.

Also fix the backing board with exclusive tacker with the same method as paintings and framing of posters, and seal with green tape.

I attached a hanging metal fitting and a hang string convenient for hanging. Product weight is about 5 kg.

On the side of the wooden frame, we carve grooves by NC machining, embed Tamiya metal sticker, and produce a high quality mood.

Characters on the name plate were etched. Metal texture tightens the finish of the whole panel.

Attach a sticker stating the serial number on the back of the frame. Increase premium feeling.

Official product videos of new TAMIYA THE BIGWIG 2017, Arocs 3363 6×4 Truck, TEAM REINERT RACING MAN & Water Scooter

The Tamiya one of a kind classic is back! The BIGWIG 4WD off-road buggy was released back in 1986 to commemorate 10 years of Tamiya R/C models and was the first Tamiya car with a body designed by an outside designer: Japanese full size race car designer and team owner Takuya Yura. This re-release version is based closely upon the original, with some tweaks to bring it up to date.

This 1/14 scale tractor truck recreates the Mercedes-Benz Arocs 3363 3-axle truck, which is the first narrow bodied European tractor model in the Tamiya Tractor Truck Series. The full-size subject is the German company’s heavy duty tractor head that debuted in 2013. Powered by a 630hp 15.6-liter inline-6, the actual Arocs is capable of hauling massive loads of up to 250 tons.
The Tamiya rendition faithfully captures the truck’s modern form with the use of ABS plastic body parts and a number of metal chassis components. One look at the detailed interior and auxiliary equipment, such as air tanks, will confirm that the body features replica-quality realism, which is further enhanced with metal transfers depicting emblems and numerous metal-plated parts. The chassis is built for durability as it uses aluminum side channels with resin cross members. Drivability is accomplished by power from the front-mounted motor and is transmitted via a propeller shaft to the rear axle; built-in differential gears guarantee smooth cornering. Gear changes can be made via a separately-sold Tamiya 4-channel transmitter.

Weighing in at a colossal 5,400kg, the trucks in the European Truck Racing Championship are truly the heavyweights of motorsport. But size isn’t the only thing that’s extreme about these incredible machines. The Team Reinert Racing MAN TGS truck is powered by a huge 1,100hp turbocharged diesel engine. To get that phenomenal power from the engine to the tarmac is no easy task, which is why the truck takes advantage of a Mechanical 16-speed ZF gearbox to get it up to speed. This Tamiya radio control replica faithfully captures the giant race truck of the Team Reinert Racing Team. It competed in the 2016 running of the FIA European Truck Racing Championship. The polycarbonate body sits atop the TT-01 E chassis, which is designed for easy assembly and maintenance.

This is an Educational Construction Series assembly kit. It is the first Tamiya kit in the series to use a centrifugal pump with impeller. it sucks in water and shoots it out to move the model forwards, rather than pushing it with a propeller. The kit recreates a water scooter with rider figure, and offers a fascinating insight into the mechanics of motion, perfect for inquisitive minds both young and not-so-young!
This is an assembly kit which creates a centrifugal pump-powered water scooter.
Length: 130mm, width: 52mm, height: 100mm.
The body is molded in a single piece, with a 1- piece mount for the motor, a 2-piece figure, and a separate handlebar part. A foam float is included, and the submarine motor is attached to it.
The pump features separate case, impeller blade, rudder and nozzle parts.
Includes a rudder which allows you to change the course which the model takes.
Change the angle of the pump to alter speed and direction of expelled water.
Pump is attached via suction cup. this allows you to use it in other models, too!
Features a sticker sheet to decorate the model.
The impeller is powered by the tried and trusted Submarine Motor Mini.
