Tamiya first produced a Hornet in 1984 – it is simply a classic! For many Tamiya fans, it was their first introduction into the world of radio control assembly kits. In fact, the original Hornet is still among Tamiya’s best selling kits to this day. The Comical Hornet is an updated and improved version of the classic!


The Comical Hornet has a re-imagined body, with ‘comical’ bubble tyres – hence its name. It also includes a newly designed driver figure which has a separate face part, allowing for an easier paint job. The t-shirted figure can either wear a visor or chin guard helmet, using the included parts. A sticker sheet means you can choose from 5 different eye designs. You choose the look! The driver holds a racy steering wheel, with sticker-recreated instrumentation and display.

The kit also includes masking stickers for use in the paint job.

Separately sold 5 mm diameter LEDs fit into the light cases – truly bringing the vehicle to life!

The lightweight and durable polycarbonate body sits on a new and dedicated variant of the proven off-road chassis: the WR-02CB.


The WR-02CB chassis works both on the road as well as off, providing smooth driving and the potential for exciting wheelies! It features a pre-assembled gearbox with a motor already attached to save hassle in the assembly process. Long suspension arms and CVA (Constant Volume Adjustable) oil dampers make for excellent off-road performance. Underguard and side guards give great protection. A rear wheelie bar helps support the model when it leans back, maintaining a fun wheels-in-the air stance as the model plunges forward. Orange and white 2-piece wheels as well as bubble tyres (front: ribbed, rear: round block) join together for a fun look and drive.

Additional Information

This is a remote control kit that requires assembly. The polycarbonate body of the kit is black in colour, so it does not necessarily require painting. If you do decide to repaint the body, Polycarbonate Spray Paint (PS) is appropriate. Some components, including the driver figure are blank and require painting, either by using the suggested paint schemes or however else you would like!
