tamiya 1/10 47414 Audi A4 quattro Touring car

This Tamiya R/C car recreates a classic Audi A4 Quattro Touring car as it raced in 1997. In the late 1990s, manufacturer-backed teams would come to dominate touring car series around the world. One of the most pre-eminent was Audi, which spared no expense in its pursuit of the top of the podium. Using its base A4 quattro as a platform, Audi developed the car significantly and turned it into a race winner. In addition, Audi sought the best drivers from around the world in order to do their creation justice.

Tamiya recreates this racer on top of the TT-01 E chassis, which is ideal for beginner kit builders. The original release of this Audi was mounted on the Tamiya TA-03 machine.

TT-01 E Chassis
The bathtub frame of the evolved shaft-driven 4WD TT-01 Type-E has its motor and battery close to the ground for lower center of gravity and optimum balance. Mounted on the bathtub frame is a fiberglass reinforced nylon upper deck and gear covers improving rigidity, as well as a 3-piece tie rod providing a smoother steering action. The low center of gravity, great balanced design, 4-wheel double wishbone suspension system, and front and rear differential gears all come together to produce excellent operating ability. 70mm-diameter radial tires are paired with metal plated wheels developed just for this model; the high sidewalls make for forgiving turns.

This time we chose a figure of Antiquity… We went to get a warrior from Parthia

who defeated Crassus and his legions in the Battle of Carrhae. This story fascinates RPmodels Team for several reasons… First… Roman War Machine, suffered the greatest or one of the greatest defeats in history… Different tactics by Parthians and the Romans could not adapt… And this defeat marks also the end of the Triumvirate, between Cesar, Pompey and Crassus, leading to a new political and geographic change at that time… Finally and what fascinates us more is the use of the Catafratari… The Heavy Cavalry, which later is incorporated into the Roman and Byzantine Army, later constituting the Heavy Cavalry at the Medieval Ages, with its principles and ideals…

The figure gave 2 different heads… Many people talk with us in the shows, messages and email and they told have some difficulties in paint faces… This time and our main goal is develop figures to everyone.

This will be a Limited Edition of 400 pieces… And I confess there are just a few left… I believe it will be SOLD OUT very quickly. We increase the number because people claim want our figures and they didn't get it… We try always our best and your opinion its very important to RPmodels and me…

75mm Camel Parthia Catafratari


Hello again…

This time we want to present you a unique piece … We developed a bust f a camel in the scale 1/12 … After the release of the elephant bust, which I am immensely proud of, not only for success, but for having won the Gold Medal in Nuremberg Fair Toy, having been elected bust of the year, several people spoke with us … Once again RPmodels took note of what was said, and tried to improve the concept … Several people spoke with us and told us who loved the figure, but were afraid to paint such a large piece and it would take a long time … RPmodels does not remain indifferent to opinions… This time, I made only the bust of the warrior, and the camel only has a part … You will enjoy great moments of painting and you will love the work…

This is a Limited Edition of 300 pieces… I ask apologies for dont increase the production but its impossible to us… We are very small… My apologies for any inconvenience…


I start think im boring you… LOL… LOL… So many post to launch a figure… LOL… Its true but its different and I think its important to have everything separated, just to see its 3 different products…

Now I will present you just the 1/12 Parthia Bust…

This is a Limited Edition of 200 busts and I ask you apologies for don't increase the number of pieces… But its very difficult to us… My apologies and Im sorry any inconvenience.
