We have 1 Tamiya Avante Black Special Edition left in stock, don't miss out.
2017 is looking to be a busy year for Tamiya re-releases:
Now this really takes me back to my youth, racing at Eden Park Overlanders.
Schumacher are re-releasing the CAT XLS Masami edition.
This will be available at TJD Models, the south-east's premier local model shop.
The latest announcement from Tamiya in 2017 is for the limited re-release of the Tamiya Top Force.
Coming in March 2017, the new Wot 4 Pro. Designed by Chris Foss, who has given model flying one of the most successfull and recognisable designs, available at TJD Models - one of the UK's largest model shops.
The Wot4 is established as a versatile and capable sports model but there is a limit to what it is capable of without sacrificing durability and versatility. So to get the most from the Wot4 Airframe we have made this new 'Pro' version for pilots who want an uncompromised version of this classic.
The ailerons, rudder and elevators have been increased in size for increased control authority. We have analysed the structure and removed weight wherever we can, this includes a built-up fin and tailplane, lightened wing, lightened fuselage and even lightening holes in the undercarriage.
To complement this new structure, we are including a special edition Irvine .39 in the kit as the perfect match of power to weight.

The E-Flite Opterra offers lightweight construction, long wingspan and efficient aerodynamics that give it a wide range of capabilities that includes everything from sport aerobatics to soaring. It even gives you the ability to put yourself in the pilot’s seat by adding FPV gear while using a GoPro Hero 3, Hero 4 or similar class of camera to record HD video at the same time. The Bind-N-Fly® version comes with the added benefit of a Spektrum™ AS3X™ receiver that features optional SAFE Select technology. Alternatively the Plug-N-Play® version comes with the motor, ESC and servos installed. All you need to do is finish some final assembly, install the receiver, charge a battery and fly.Read more...
