Some creative Tamiya Tumbling Bull customised creations

Look at Tamiya’s tumbling bull, if you think “a bit different …”
let’s make it yourself.
In this corner, we will recruit such self-made tumbling bulls (for short).

Tan 01 Issue Manpei 370Z (Chiba)
Scratch the body based on Ogoro.
The neck of the doll is spring mount and reduces the damage when falling.
A hole in the front is an aerodynamic device that uses the suction effect by internal negative pressure.
Hmm! It is unanimous and big fool certified.

Tan 02 Isakin (Chiba)
manager himself w I tried making it because it is interesting . The title is “GeeBee Wheel” body based on Coca – Cola 2.0 scratch interwoven with Pepsi NEX etc. Its original coke bottle shape optimizes the air flow to the aero device (rear fender?). W type 3 cylinder 4000 cc engine demonstrates intense low speed torque

Tan 03 Issue Pikachu @ majorbangp (Ibaraki Prefecture)
It was pretty nice to be hikurini ! The title is “Grand Prix” Wheel “Racer”
Motif is a pre-war Grand Prix racer “Bugatti T 35”
Body is based on Shochu PET 4.0, a front grill reproduced with a knitted pattern on a black styrene board bought at a 100 yen shop Installation.
It is said that it shows merciless cornering because of light weight & super low center of gravity.
Something that is something body mountless is also squid!

Tan 04 Ponchi Ario (Yamanashi Prefecture)
Poncini received a self-directed submission from Professor ! It’s been a while ago!
I put a plastic bottle on the tumbling bull and tried it like a towing tractor.
In addition, I also tried up a cargo trailer, but
when turning, the front wheel of the front car and the front wheel of the car hits and it will not bend well (LOL)
Congratulations on the Tamigra Condée prize!
Premonition ♪ I think the self-made body will be popular ♪

Tan 05 BAKA # 283 Ao Piyo (Gunma)
With a propeller. It is a long post.
I tried to make such a body using a soy sauce plastic bottle.
The propeller turns in the wind ~ ♪
Happy Tamigra Condale!
It is an unexpected material with soy sauce pet. The pilot doll is also nice.
