Pictures: Building The Tamiya Lunch Box

Tamiya Lunchbox
I don't think it comes to the surprise of anyone who frequents this site that we here at RCNewz.com are big fans of Tamiya vehicles. The reasoning is simple, they offer many of their RC cars and trucks in kit form and we love building kits. Kits were the cornerstone of what made this hobby so great back in the day and we hope to see more of them. In the past we've built a few other Tamiya RC trucks but in those builds we went into detail on how everything assembled. For this build, however, we're doing things a little different. With the Tamiya Lunch Box being such an easy to assemble kit we felt that the details weren't needed. Instead this entire build is little more than pictures with quick descriptions! Enjoy!
