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 unboxing 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.
|58017||B2B Racing Sidecar|
|58001||Porsche 934 Turbo RSR|
|58003||Tyrrell P34 Six Wheeler|
|Kyosho Vanning Nitro||Restore project|
|92018||Grasshopper II Super G|
|58268||Mammoth Dump Truck|
