What the postie delivered today: A Tamiya RC Hornet

It was a good day in the Dave's Model Workshop household. A fresh delivery by the Postie! And what have we here? Another ridiculous, juvenile radio control buggy kit! A Tamiya Hornet!

Oooh! Oooh! Oooh!

I distinctly remember in the 1980s being rather dismissive of the Hornet. I remember pooh-poohing it - it's a cheap, entry-level kit, and it's nothing special. But I rather suspect I was wrong, in that special know-it-all way that 12 year olds specialise in. Having done a little research as an adult, the Hornet is an amazing get-the-maximum-bang-for-your-buck RC kit. From what I can glean online, it's fast, cheap, reliably bulletproof, and (most importantly) fun.

This is the perfect companion to my Sand Scorcher.

You two are going to have such adventures together!

So... ummm... asking for a friend: when does a healthy interest turn into an addiction?
