Tamiya Hornet Body Set
SOLD: AU$90 on November 17th 2017
Year of release: 1984
Condition: 10/10. New in box.


For sale here is a vintage Tamiya Hornet Body Set. This is the original, vintage body set, released in the mid 1980s, for the Tamiya Hornet buggy. 100% complete and original, with the authentic decal sheet featuring genuine sponsor logos, and all accessories. This set (including the body) is different to the so-called “re-release” body set, which is widely available and still in production.

The box has a little wear, but is pretty good. The body and wing have some slight yellowing from age. But I believe they will still come up very nice once painted. I would be surprised if the yellowing was noticeable after painting – it is not extreme yellowing, but is noticeable when viewed edge-wise under white light. The body’s strength will not be affected by its age.

If you are restoring a vintage Tamiya Hornet, this is the body set you need to keep it original and authentic.

Vintage replacement body sets for the Tamiya R/C cars of the 1980s are definitely becoming more scarce each year – something to keep in mind for future restoration projects. As always, thanks for visiting my listing.

Please see the photos to understand the condition. Feel free to contact me to find out more.
