A Closer Look at the Tamiya products on display
A provisional list of products on display has been uploaded. Click on this link to jump to the page!




¡Spotlight on the TOYOTA GR Supra
TOYOTA's stunning new GR Supra is a star addition to our 1/10 R/C, 1/24 static, and Mini 4WD product lines. Come and take a look at the double bubble roof sports car in all its model guises at the Tamiya booth.



¡1/48 Lockheed® P-38®F/G Lightning®
The P-38 Lightning was produced in great numbers and created a number of U.S. aces during WWII. It remains a fascinating design with twin booms housing V12 engines, plus a central section with the cockpit, cannon and machine guns. Later variants of the Lightning also had bomb carrying capability, and even performed recon missions over Europe upon their assignment there in 1942. One of its most notable accomplishments was the downing of a Japanese aircraft that was transporting the key figure of Admiral Isoroku Yamamoto in 1943.



¡1/12 Street Rider
This assembly kit creates the Street Rider, a biker in casual attire. Finely molded parts depict a realistic pose and facial expression, as well as capturing the folds of the leather jacket and jeans in style. Choose whether to create the rider helmeted and pulling on gloves, or in beanie hat with helmet in hand.



¡1/16 U.S. Airborne Tank M551 Sheridan (Display Model)
Designed as an airliftable tank that could be swiftly carried and dropped where needed, yet deploying a daunting heavy duty 152mm gun/launcher, the M551 Sheridan was officially adopted in 1966. Of the 1,600 produced by November 1970, many saw action in the Vietnam War, where they served a variety of roles including assaults on enemy positions. Following on from the Tamiya 1/35 static and 1/16 R/C models, the Sheridan now graces the 1/16 Big Tank Series!

¡1/35 German Light Tank Panzerkampfwagen 38(t) Ausf.E/F
German forces did not hesitate to commandeer vehicles in conquered territories they judged useful, and that fate befell the Panzerkampfwagen 38(t) light tank after Czechoslovakia was overrun in 1939. This riveted, 3.5cm gun-toting vehicle was produced by the Germans in variants from Ausf.A to G, and played a significant role in early WWII. Ausf.E and F 38(t)s were produced for roughly a year from November 1940, and were seen in invading German forces during Operation Barbarossa.



¡1/10 R/C TRF420 Chassis Kit
The TRF420 is the latest carbon fiber double-deck model in the thoroughbred line of TRF chassis. Its design features brand new arm and upright components, plus new suspension mounts which use plastic bushings for shafts that allow five different treads (and roll center settings). Parts in the updated steering bridge can be changed to tweak the steering setup. In the drivetrain, a lighter 37T gear differential design maintains the same oil capacity as predecessors, while new double cardan universal shafts bring stable corners and next-level speed. Body mounts now offer a choice between standard and 2mm forward body hole positions.



¡1/10 R/C Mercedes-Benz G 500 (CC-02 Chassis)
The Mercedes-Benz G Classf heavy duty chassis and distinctive body design have long made it a favorite with consumers, and in 2018 it was endowed with new models including the G 500, powered by a 4-liter V8 twin turbo engine. This R/C model assembly kit recreates the G 500. Length: 455mm, width: 196mm, height: 207mm. ★The boxy form is recreated accurately in polycarbonate, with separate molded parts for front grille, side mirrors and spare tire cover. ★The new CC-02 chassis provides a great base for the model, at home on a range of off-road surfaces and even rocky terrain.



¡1/24 R/C Lunch Box Mini (Assembled) (SW-01)
The ground-breaking Lunch Box Mini on the compact SW-01 chassis is now available as an assembled model! Its special red chassis components make for a super contrast with the bright yellow body. A central Type 370 motor powers front and rear wheels via a gear-driver powertrain, and strut type suspension has one-piece upper arms that give the Lunch Box Mini some radical lean as it corners, producing a seriously tight turning circle.



¡Hyundai i20 Coupe WRC (MA Chassis)
Mini 4WD welcomes another real life rally star in the shape of the i20 Coupe WRC, a car which took four victories in 2017 and finished second among manufacturers. The stylish form of the car is recreated masterfully in plastic, molded in the shade of the real car known as "performance blue."



¡Cyclone Magnum Memorial (Super TZ-X Chassis) Fully Cowled Mini 4WD 25th Anniversary
The popular Fully Cowled Mini 4WD series of cars celebrates its 25th anniversary this month! Why not join the celebrations with this special commemorative model of the Cyclone Magnum? It includes a lightweight polycarbonate body with white ABS plastic chassis parts that have a commemorative molding in the underside. Stickers are clear type to go with the body.



¡Chain-Program Robot (Blue & Yellow)
This is a special blue and yellow version of the Chain Program Robot! Just like the regular version, it can be programmed by the use of three types of special link put together to form a chain. The chain is pushed through the model by the chain gear, and the reader translates the different links into positions of the rear wheel, steering the robot. Attaching the chain ends to one another creates an ongoing cycle. Arms and head move along with the front wheel. The kit includes everything needed for easy snap-fit/screw-together assembly, but requires one R6/AA/UM3 battery.
