Comical Lunch Box Mini

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.

4Y24

Our friends at Carisma announced their 4Y24 1/24th Scale 4WD buggy kit. The 4Y24 kit is based on the original GT24B running the latest 2.4 GHz radio gear and Brushless electrics now available. The robust and well engineered 4Y-24 4WD Buggy Kit incorporates all the features you would expect of a class leading model. It’s the perfect starting point for any serious 1/24th race buggy build.

Independent coil over suspension works with 1/10th Race Buggy inspired A-Arms to keep the tyres generating grip, while the slipper clutch protects the driveline from undue stress when jumping or changing from high to low grip surfaces. Tough gear diffs, front and rear, allow for a true 4WD “Lift Off Oversteer” dynamic, and can be fine tuned by changing the viscosity of the internal grease used.

ECX- Barrage UV FPV scaler crawler SET

Today ECX (member of the big Horizon Hobby family) has dropped a bomb in the RC market: the Barrage UV FPV. This 1/24 scale crawler takes the legacy of the original 1/24-scale 4WD Barrage Scaler and expands it with the hottest accessory on the market: a front mounted FPV camera. Drivers of this little beast get crystal clear video using the included 25mW camera and 4.3 inch Spektrum receiver LCD screen.

From the office to the kitchen counter, the new Barrage UV FPV  tackles everyday house hold items like messy bedroom floors with ease and runs right through leaves and twigs on dirt paths. It features a beginner-friendly price (street price is below $200) that I’m sure will make this new FPV vehicle one of the best selling RC model during the Christmas season.
