Hi there I’m looking for vintage nib tamiya rc cars, like the fox, super shot, hot shot 2,boomerang,bigwig, ect. Can you help these.

Hi Massimo, Unfortunately I’m not selling any of these kits at the moment. I would suggest you keep a close eye on eBay however, as they do come up from time to time.

Nice website! Just stumbled across your website whilst looking for info on an old RC toy I used to have when I was a kid and I’m wondering if maybe you might know something about it as I have been trying for ages just to even confirm it’s existence!!! The toy in question was called ‘The Winch’ (at least it was here in the UK) and it resembled a short wheel base 1/12’ish scale RTR Toyota Landcruiser (open top like a jeep) coloured maroon red with a black roll cage, semi pneumatic tyres and white toyota rims and it had… Read more »

Hi Gamepuppy. The car you’re referring is indeed called “The Winch” and was made by a company called Matsushiro. It was smaller than 1/12 (it may have seemed bigger when you were younger!), I believe it was actually about 1/16 scale. The Winch was a cool toy, and is remembered by many especially in the UK, although I suspect it is less known outside the UK. Keep an eye out for one because they do come up! RiKo was a UK importing company founded by Richard Kohnstam I believe, and they were always the importer for Tamiya in the UK… Read more »

Thanks for the info R/CTM! Happy, happy, Joy, Joy!!!

With your help I’ve found loads of stuff on the web about it and I’ll let you know how I get on finding a NIB one!

Just thought you should know – The Winch has since been featured on the site, and you can read about it here: http://rctoymemories.com/2014/01/01/the-winch-by-matsushiro-1985/

Hi,

I have an original ’79 Sand Scorcher body shell, professionally painted and in excellent condition.

Do you know how much it may be worth?

Many thanks
Nick

Hey Nick, it’s hard to say exactly of course, without seeing it. But here’s a rough guide. Unpainted original issue bodies are generally worth the most. I sold one in the box a few months ago for about AU$425. But they used to be worth more (up to $1000), until eBay became flooded with the cheap rerelease version. But there’s still plenty of people who want the original, since it is different. A painted original body will always be worth at least ~$100 (even an old one). A nicely painted one, somewhere above $200. But I would suspect not higher… Read more »

I have a new in box Tamiya RA1027 Ford F150 Ranger XLT that I’m going to sell. Should I wait until closer to Christmas before posting to get the best price or does it not matter? Is eBay the best route for me to go or would I be better off to post it on forums? Any speculation on the value? The assembly manual is missing, but everything else is there and still in the proper bags, bins and containers, unopened. Thanks for any advice!

Hi Eric. I don’t think Christmas matters that much. True, there are some people who might be looking to buy such collectibles as gifts, but on the other hand Christmas is a time when many people are short of spending money due to all the other costs of Christmas 🙂 As for selling, eBay will be the best option, as no collecting forum has as large an audience. And as for the price, the XLT has never been reissued, but the parts it shared with the Rough Rider and Sand Scorcher have been. NIB XLT prices used to be around… Read more »

Hi R/C Toy Memories. First of all: you rock!! I have a question you might be able to help me with. After searching for +20 years I finally found the RC my heart was aching for since I lost it due to leaving it outside in the rain: a yellow Nikko frame buggy, scale 1/18. I remembered all details except for the name. Now I finally found it and bought it. It’s a Turbo Eagle from 1986 – in yellow…. I can’t find anything on it online though. It has the number 55 stickers like the Thunder Eagle – but… Read more »

Hi Peter – yes, the Turbo Eagle 🙂 I know it. This is quite a small buggy from Nikko, which dates from 1987 – it was probably their smallest, full function buggy of the time, being 1/18. I have a yellow one here also. I believe the vehicle’s original, factory name is ‘Turbo Eagle’, and yes in some overseas markets it was renamed to ‘Thunder Eagle’. Commonly, Nikko would sell their models around the world, and in some cases the same vehicle was sold with as many as 3 or 4 different names, depending on the country it was being… Read more »

hello: Im looking for a Herbie Bus made by Planet Toys for Walmart, its 1/6 scale. they were released around 2004-2005. They made both the 1/6 Herbie beetle and the bus. I’m interested in the bus; new or used. Please let me know.

R/C Toy Memories

Louis, sorry but generally this site focuses on R/C cars made prior to about the mid 1990s. Anything later than that, and it’s not something I’m too aware of, as just too many cheap R/C models were made from the mid 1990s onwards to today, to reliably keep track of. Many of them in China, and without proper branding.
