Tamiya 70250 Swimming Sea Otter official product video

A Real Cracker!
This assembly kit creates the Swimming Sea Otter, an adorable model with its paddling tail propelled by a submarine motor. Simultaneously, a cam moves the forepaws in a motion mimicking the cracking of a shell. Builders will be fascinated to see how the model transforms the rotation of the motor into reciprocating motion. The streamlined assembly uses push rivets and a small amount of screws, while water resistant stickers are included to add some cute detail to the model.

★Length: 202mm, width: 75mm, height: 80mm (measurements are approximate) ★Submarine motor included. ★Includes everything needed for easy snap-fit/screw-together assembly.

Tamiya 58705 Ford Bronco 2021 CC-02 review video

When it comes to fun RC build models, Tamiya creates some amazing kits and the 2021 Ford Bronco CC-02 is a stunning 1/10 replica. Tamiya went with the 2-door version of the new Bronco and also added a bit more detail by including a roof rack, and bull bar up front along with some other impressive accessories. Greg will go over all of that here along with an amazing drive of this beautiful crawler along the coast of Maine. If you’re looking for a great RC modeling experience or you’re just a new Bronco fan, then you need to see this kit!
