Over the years I have kept a lookout on eBay for people offering up NIB Tamiya kits. Not all of the boxes are in as nice a condition as I would prefer but it gets me closer to my goal of all 55 off road versions. Originally I thought I would replicate the famous Tamiya 100 style pictures and box art each one but as I realized how much less they are worth built vs still NIB I abandoned that idea. Some of my missing kits do show up from time to time but they just aren’t in the price range I am willing to pay. Ironically the kit that started it all for me, the Bruiser, I do not yet have NIB. I do however have enough parts to build about three complete versions.
If there is a YouTube icon in the row then click it to see the video. The icon with the open box will take you to my “Unboxing” video and the crown icon will bring you to a slideshow of my “Queen” video. If you have a request for my next unboxing then please comment or send me a message. If the row has a green checkbox then it means I have that one New In Box (NIB).
I am always interested in kits that have some level of uniqueness. These kits do not have to all be Tamiya. The following are other unique kits that I am tracking for my collection.
