Re: Omg - tamiya makes the new Toyota ts050 hybrid... OMG

Great news. I'm quite excited as well. 2019 is shaping up to be a great year for
modelers of GT racers. New kits from NuNu and now Tamiya. May be others will
join too. Really happy to see LeMans winning car after about a decade since R10
was release by Revell.

Now only 2 questions:
- does Tamiya have access to engine details and would it be full detail kit
- should I build LeMans winner or WEC champion or both

I did mention new kits from NuNu (same as or in cooperation with Platz). So, on my count we should have 4 GT3/LeMans race car kits (excluding variations of M6 GT3 from NuNu/Platz):
- Revell Ford GT
- NuNu 911 RSR
- NuNu R8 LMS
- Tamiya TS050

May be BeeMax will decide to do a GT3 or LeMans racer as well.

I thought someone was doing a recent 911 Porsche GT3, but I'm not sure we're talking about the same car either.

Re: Omg - tamiya makes the new Toyota ts050 hybrid... OMG

I remember when Tamiya were top of their game and releases came thick and fast in all scales and all types. Now this release causes an immense fuss, because it's the first release for years. They should get back to the way they were and start doing some regular new stuff..!!!

Re: Omg - tamiya makes the new Toyota ts050 hybrid... OMG

That is great news indeed!
I just feel a bit let down by the fact that this kit comes a bit too late when the Audi and Porsche opposition has left.
Would have been great to have a Tamiya lineup from 2016 instead.


Now I set my hopes for Tamiya releases of the next generation DTM cars

I think it's been a long while since Tamiya released any kit of DTM cars. I would think Revel is more likely to do it again.
Their BMW and Mercedes DTM cars from 2009 were great kits.

Their BMW and Mercedes DTM cars from 2009 were great kits.

With Super GT and the DTM having a common rule set from 2020 and the compliant DTM cars being launched already in 2019 I hope for Tamiya.
They have been releasing Super GT race cars lately.
Both German manufacturers, Audi and BMW, have stated that they might take their cars to race in Japan, which increases the likelihood for a kit.


The Revell kits of the Audi, BMW and Mercedes were OK, but in my opinion not at the level of the Tamiya kits of the Alfa, Mercedes and Opel made back in the 1990ies.


We will see what the future brings.

911 RSR and GT3R also, IIRC ?

I've heard/read somewhere that Nunu/Platz IS Beemax (or at least their "Modern GT" branch). At the exception of their first release, the WTCC Cruze, Beemax only concentrates on vintage cars. Which is a very good thing btw.

Re: Omg - tamiya makes the new Toyota ts050 hybrid... OMG

Seems nowadays they all just want to announce... announce.
About Porsche’s they show 3d mole up nearly one year ago of the 991 gt3r, while 2019 newest car is deeply different in body already and until
Today nothing arrived on the market.

I think is risky to promise stuff so early, even more if they must be made in injection plastic.

Note all rules for modern gt changed in 2019. I’ve seen it with my nsx, the car racing now in Daytona is slightly different from my model.

I assume that manufacturers announce to avoid the risk of having 2 or more identical cars on the market. A too small market nowadays.

Because they are arguably the 2 biggest brands on the market and don't care about the others. Beemax and Belkits, for instance, are nothing compared to them.

Anyhow, the least comfortable position is in my opinion the one of small resin casters like P24 and so on : a good amount of their favourite subjects are now taken into account by injected plastic companies.
