Nice decal sets for Tamiya RC models. In 1984 I really, really wanted a Frog, Hornet or Grasshopper. eBay time. (Early mid-life crisis coming on?)

Yeah, I remember these. I had the Tamiya Lunchbox.
Destroyed it many years ago, though :(

I'm about to bid for a Lunchbox on eBay! (rubbing palms together...)

Nice! That Hornet box front brings back the memories - I had one :-) Great little car. I ended up bumping the wheels up to something with larger rims and less sidewall, and eventually put a beetle body kit on it and raced it every weekend.

So many memories. Charge up the battery, put the car in a backpack and pedal for an hour to get to the saturday morning race track. Saweeet.

Wow, I had one of these too. I always broke the differential in that car. That darn plastic thing broke every time you ran it into anything hard. I remember stocking up three at a time.
