Scorcher-Mania

Unglaublich, aber wahr! Es gibt einen weiteren lebensgroßen Scorcher. In England hat Mike Downham die letzten fünf Jahre damit verbracht einen Sand Scorcher auf die Beine zu stellen. In einer Einzelgarage! Hut ab! So gibt es zum 30-jährigen Jubiläum des Tamiya Sand Scorchers schon zwei 1:1 Modelle, ist das nicht cool?

Und wer weiß, vielleicht werden die Bajas der 70er zum Trend der nächsten Jahre. Wäre  eine nette Abwechslung nach all den extrem tiefen Autos.

Wir hoffen auf jeden Fall Mikes und unseren Scorcher ein Mal zusammen zu sehen - vorläufig leider nur auf Bildern. Doch wer weiß, wo sich unsere Autos diese Saison über den Weg laufen - und wer noch dazu stößt. Ist jemand an der gelb-roten Variante dran? :-)

Unbelivable, but true! There is another real size Sand Scorcher. In five years time Mike Downham from England build a Sand Scorcher in his single garage! Hats off! Now there are already two 1:1 Scorchers in the year of the 30th anniversary of the Tamiya Sand Scorcher. Isn't that cool?

And who knows, maybe the 70s styled Bajas are getting the new trend for the next years? Would be a nice change after all the slammed cars.

We hope to see Mikes and our Scorcher together some day - for now only on photos. But maybe the two cars meet at one or the other show this season - and maybe someone else is joining in. Is anybody building the yellow-red version right now? :-)

I´m very proud that I got introduced to Mr. S. Tamiya today. He even sat in our Scorcher and signed the box of my RE-Release Modell.

WHen people realized who was standing next to the car, it seemed that everybody had a camera on hand!

Mr. Thomas Peter , Senior Marketing Manager of Tamiya Germany was kindly hosting us today! :-)

There are plans of displaying the Scorcher worldwide ( at least Japan, Germany , the UK and the USA). Maybe you can check it out at an event near you very soon!

We finished the Scorcher right in time for the Nürnberg Toy Fair!

Before we put it on the trailer, we had 2 very nice gentlemen from England in our shop.

Car Pervert Jonny Smith ( www.carpervert.com) and photographer Stu Collins  (www.stuart-collins.com )used our internet cafe`between shootings well.

Was a great time we had with them!

It was like : " the lost child they never had came finally home!"

Goose bump feeling!

One of the first persons we met there was Fumito Taki. He designed the original Scorcher back in the day!

DSCF0722

I don´t know if he ever imagined to sit behind the wheel of the real car! He seemed quite happy!

DSCF0731

I was very pleased that he signed the glove box door for me! With date and time!

Mr. Tamiya did the same a day later! I sadly missed it out!
