Tamiya is pleased to present a new revisited model in collaboration with Jun Watanabe Blockhead motors. This model is based on the #58062 1/10-scale Hotshot II released in 1987 and is revised for a new look with new livery thanks to dedicated stickers, like what was done with the #58695 1/10-scale Wild One Off-Road Blockhead Motors buggy.

Jun Watanabe group deals with stickers, clothing and customizations of Tamiya buggy models from the 80s, also taking part in the design of fashion, music and skateboard projects to expand the horizons of RC cars.

  • Polycarbonate body (0.7 mm thick) of the Hotshot II is pre-cut and pre-painted in bright blue.
