Tamiya Hotshot Junior

Hotshot Jr Box Front

Here’s another moving museum post. At the time I was snapping photos of everything that I wasn’t planning on keeping, planning to someday post them as museum posts. Well, almost two years later, here is the box of my Hotshot Junior mini 4WD model car.

These were one of many toys that I grew up playing with (though I doubt serious enthusiasts would agree that they are toys). In primary school, we would race our mini 4WDs in our school’s drainage gutter, sprinting along with the cars. After I grew up, I almost always bought one if I ever encountered one. I think I bought this one when I was in Hong Kong in early 2010.

The last photo shows a couple of the cars from childhood, as well as a more recent acquisition. Also, here is Tamiya’s Online Catalog, a treasure trove of photos and information. Enjoy!
