This August Tamiya will begin the distribution of the 1/24th Scale Comical Lunch Box Mini kit on the all-new SW-01 chassis. The model is compact, maneuverable, and above all super-fun addition to the world of Tamiya wheelie models. It’s a familiar face, too, as the legendary Tamiya Lunch Box has been shrunk down to 1/24 scale.
The classic shrunken Lunch Box body sits on top of the 4WD SW-01 chassis. It is capable of 4-wheel steering using separately sold Upper Arm Connectors that not only allows you to steer with all four wheels on the ground, but it also allows the vehicle to steer while doing wheelies.
SWD-01 chassis key features
