Tamiya 58630 Plasma Edge II TT02B 1/10th Buggy unboxing and body

Here is the box.....I also proceeded to paint the body and finish it with the included factory stickers. I used Tamiya Bright Silver Metallic.

I don't know if any of my readers remember....but Tamiya used to have artist renditions on their boxes, and the major components of the kit were neatly arranged in a bubble package...highlighted. Also the kits had a particular gratifying smell of mold release agent and rubber; most likely from the tires....now all absent!
