Tamiya Remote Control Cars

Tamiya RC Car and TruckTamiya logoTamiya is a company in Japan that produces realistic looking remote control cars and trucks. Tamiya is well known for producing electric rc cars for beginners, and lately has produced gas or nitro powered rc cars and trucks.

If I were to buy my first RC car... it would be a Tamiya. I love Tamiya cars. I started buying them in 1979, and bought my latest model in 2002. Below is my Tamiya collection:
