Looking for a hobby? Something to do while you’re stuck at home? The radio control car hobby is a great thing to get into. Of course we’re going to show you how much fun it can be! Tamiya is an RC car manufacturer that has helped countless people get into the hobby. Recently we added their Mercedes-Benz 190E Debis TT-01 Type-E On-Road Car to the collection and we took a slightly different approach to showing you this kit. This semi-review will tell you about the cars features, details and performance, but more importantly, we hope it serves as inspiration for those looking for a hobby or those in the hobby to try a fun car that might interest them. Let’s get to it RC Drivers!
Error: Please note the shocks are friction shocks. A friend helped me with the build and assembled the shocks. At a quick glance to me, they appeared to be the oil version shocks.

After having so much fun, while building the latest Tamic Comical Models, a long time project was waiting to be completed.
One of the most iconic Tamiya cars ever. The Tamiya Lunch Box. Everyone loves it, and it´s still one of the most popular Vintage Tamiya RC Cars. The LB is also an absolutely perfect base for customizing projects. Years ago, we had the idea to build a replica of the famous “Mystery Machine”, well known from the classic “Scooby Doo” TV show.
For this project, we´ve collected some parts for quite some time.
Here is a list of parts, we used on this car:
- 84343 Chassis Red Style CW-01
- 84345 CW-01 D-Parts Under Guard Set Red
- 84347 CW-01 C.V.A. Short Shock Unit Set II White Style
- 53068 RS-540 Sport Tuned Motor – Black
- 19335442 Midnight Pumpkin Metallic – Chrome wheels
- Full Ball Bearing Set for Grasshopper/ Hornet/Lunch Box
- Custom Made Mystery Machine Decals
- R31 House Formula Kart Slick Tire
Tamiya TS-41 Coral Blue matches the orginal “Mystery Machine” Decal perfectly.
All in all, the Lunch Box came out great, and it´s now one of our all time favourites.

Some RC kit builds are quick, others take some time and some take a really long time. We received the Tamiya Mercedes-Benz Arocs Tipper Truck some time ago, but this build up kit is loaded with parts and detail. So we chose to build it as time allowed, painting parts here and gluing parts there and finally it’s complete! The Tamiya Mercedes-Benz Arocs Tipper Truck like many other Tamiya big rigs is just an amazing scale model that is radio control. It is comprised of components that will certainly impress you as you build it. If you are big rig fan or just a scale enthusiast that likes building models, this truck is certainly a kit you will enjoy. Check out all of the features of the Arocs in our detailed review and of course see it in action.
