Tamiya Pre-Painted Opel Kadett / Motul Autech Z Kits | CompetitionX

Tamiya Pre-Painted Opel Kadett and Motul Autech Z Kits | CompetitionX

Tamiya now offers two of their latest releases with pre-painted bodies – the Opel Kadett and Motul Autech Z!

Both kits come painted but minus stickers and exterior ‘bolt-on’s, so there is still a bit of work needed to complete these kits.

Quick Stats
Product: Tamiya Opel Kadett, Tamiya Motul Autech Z
Part #: 47499 (Opel), 47503 (Z)
Scale: 1/10 Scale
Price: $204.00 (Opel), $222.00 (Z)
Build Type: Kit

What We Like:
While we love to paint and detail our own bodies, we do see the benefit of offering pre-painted bodies for a quicker build process. That said, we’re pretty sure this is going to be a standard kit edition for all of their future releases.

What We’re Not Sure About:
Nothing, other than the fact it still takes 5 hours to add all the stickers (especially to the Motul Autech Z).
