7 years ago we had posted some photos of the Tamiya Philippines Factory and few days ago the Bright Spot Gizmos & Toys Company posted many more photos on their Facebook page.
Interestingly, a few of them show a prototype of the Tamiya 58646 RC 1/18 Konghead 6X6 G6-01 as well the production of its Polycarbonate body and some pre-sale sample chassis:
Below there is a small compilation of more interesting photos of the visit, the source and all of them can be found at Bright Spot Gizmos & Toys Facebook photo album
In a couple of pictures there is a bunch of 1/10 scale R/C cars in a display case that includes a Ferrari F40 LM. Does anyone know if this kit and/or body was ever released? I know they released the regular Ferrari F40 but never seen an LM version.
Good observation James, we also don’t know of anything official.
James, it’s a TT01 under that F40 LM. I was part of the trip. Took shots of the car underneath and it’s a regular chassis but with wheel spaces and F40 rims.
