Kits made real as 1:1-scale Tamiya cars wow the crowds

For Immediate Release: Sunday July 02 2017

A legion of cars builders and racers cut their teeth building and operating remote-controlled cars, with Japanese company Tamiya being king of scale-model manufacturers. Race-preparation firm Lanzante has built a trio of life-sized, fully-operational cars inspired by globally-popular kits which have caused kids of all ages to cheer whenever they have ventured anywhere near the Hillclimb course during the weekend. They include a brilliantly-realised 1:1-scale Sand Scorcher which perfectly mimics the vintage R/C that was first introduced in 1979, the Tamiya Wild Willy Jeep and Tamiya Fast Attack Vehicle. Each was constructed for enthusiast Olivier Ellerbrock, and we’re jealous!
