    Cool van. Makes you wonder what they were smoking at Tamiya when they named it 'Vanessa's Lunchbox'.

    Bingo! That's what Tamiya looked at to create the lunchbox back in the 80's.
    I'm surprized you used your head to figure it out. The Rollin' Thunder Monster Truck.
    If you look at the difference in todays monster trucks, they dont weight 20,000 pounds like Rollin' Thunder did back then.

    RE: 1:1 scale TAMIYA LUNCHBOX!!!

    @dudecat - the mt that you posted is the old ground pounder.

    The redcat one is actually a model version of the new one

    BUT i found a rc version of the old one too.

    Heres some pics

    So redcat wasn't the one with the idea of the yellow hulk.
    The 1:1 appears to use a 03-06 Silverado style body.
    The old RC one looks like it uses a Clod chassis.

    @mad modder, im pret sure that the old ground pounder rc does use a clod chassis.

    I think its just a clod that someone has tried to make, more realistic!!

    IIRC, Kyosho did, back in the heyday of the USA-1. I think it was the Hi-Rider Corvette...
