We have another Tamiya Lunch Box Mini SW-01 found to feature! This time however it’s an XSA version. This means it’s an Expert Semi-Assembled kit from Tamiya. The iconic little mini size van comes built from the factory with the motor installed, body painted and decaled and the only thing you need to do is drop in your choice of electronics. For some drivers, this is a great opportunity to reuse some old RTR electronics they may have lying around. In this video Greg shows how easy it is to install some spare radio gear he has and then takes the Van out for a drive and remembers just how much fun this Tamiya model is!
Over 200,000,000 Tamiya Mini 4WD vehicles have been sold since 1982.

The peak of the “Shizuoka Hobby Show” is the Tamiya model. Every time, I had the biggest booth at the back of the North Building. This time, there was a must-see exhibition for fans at the Tamiya booth, “Until a plastic model is made.”
Beginning with planning interviews, we explain in order how the plastic model is completed through the processes of design, mold making, and molding, showing the process. A larger injection molding machine was installed to demonstrate how the plastic model was actually made, and at least on the trader’s day, it was distributed to those who were looking at the completed plastic model.
The latest ones are designed using 3D-CAD, but in an era when there wasn’t such a thing, it was far more handy than it is now to make details from the design drawings and make a wooden pattern from them. It is a valuable exhibition that shows that the model was completed by such work.
In addition, the Tamiya model is open to the history museum of the head office during the hobby show (until May 15th). In addition to historic Tamiya products, you can see real F1 exhibits such as Lotus and Tyrrell with 6 wheels. If you have time, I definitely want to go there.
