Pictures: Building The Tamiya Lunch Box

Tamiya Lunch Box BuildI 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 R/C 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 R/C 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!

    Thanks for posting these, the lunch box is one of my favorite rc cars of all time!

    can you please explain to me how to set up the receiver

    • Stan

      That greatly depends on what radio/receiver you have. What are you have trouble with? Have you looked at your radio’s manual to see how it is setup?
