A school boy wish come true!
The Tamiya Frog is the 2nd RC buggy that I've purchased from Wonderland Models. As with many others owning and building one of these RC buggy's is a throw back to my childhood, unfortunately at that time they were well out of mine or my parents price league. The Frog is for me and my son to build and drive. I ordered the RC kit plus all the required paints and additional "tuned" motor. Originally the kit was out of stock with a due date around mid January however the RC kit and paints etc. were delivered about 8 days before the due date. All items were well packed and in good order. I have yet to build the Frog as I'm nearing completion of my original RC purchase from Wonderland a Tamiya Super Hotshot. Another great RC model and so far a great build despite a couple of snags with the kit that was supplied, these issues were swiftly dealt with and rectified by the staff at Wonderland Models. I would highly recommend purchasing any RC products from Wonderland Models based on my experiences.

I buckled again and bought another RC car from Wonderland models. This is as good as I remember it being, back in the 80s when all I could afford as a kid was the Grasshopper. I'm still in the process of building it (whilst deciding on how to paint it). Excellent RC car, and now I just need to find a display case to store them all!
