“Feel the Love, Man”; Tamiya’s Volkswagen Type 2 Flower Power Van Kit

“Feel the Love, Man”; Tamiya’s Volkswagen Type 2 Flower Power Van Kit

If you’re ever looking for a unique R/C model, look no further than what Tamiya has in their lineup. While a majority of their R/C kits are fairly straight-laced, they have a number of models that are brimming with zaniness.

For example, take a look at one of their upcoming 1/10-scale kits, the Volkswagen Type 2 “Flower Power” Van. Replicating the 1:1 styling of the 1950’s Volkswagen Bus, this kit rides on top of Tamiya’s M-05 chassis blending performance with visual intrigue.

The “Flower Power” graphics scheme is part of a limited release for this model, which combined with the pre-cut and pre-painted (Tamiya PS-3 Light Blue) Volkswagen Bus body, creates one memorable hippie machine.
