Toys: vintage Bluebird-U 2000GT RC car

Last week I stumbled across this Nissan Bluebird-U RC car by Bandai:
Bandai Nissan Bluebird U 2000GT RC car
It has dents all over it and the remote control doesn’t look that remote nowadays but back when it was new it was the best you could get!

Just imagine that the boy who used to play with this rare 2000GT hardtop coupe is now old enough to actually have owned several of them! If that is the case I probably already should have owned several 935s by now! :D

Repost: 30 years of Tamiya R/C cars

Now this is probably the coolest Tamiya poster I’ve ever seen:
30 years of Tamiya R/C cars
30 years of Tamiya R/C cars

This poster from 2006 covers the most important models by Tamiya in their 30 years of radio controlled cars. It starts with the Porsche 934 Turbo RSR Now on the top left and you can see many nice JDM models in there: next to the 934 a Group 5 Celica Celica liftback A28, in the mid left a Group 5 Nissan Fairlady S30 240Z, a Honda City Turbo, some Skyline R32s in the mid right and a Supra JZA80 at the right bottom. Can you spot some more great models I missed?
