This version of the popular Suzuki Jimny MF-01X kit comes with a Metallic Blue painted body. It allows radio control modelers to concentrate on building their car while leaving the paint task to the Tamiya experts at the factory.
The MF-01X is a compact chassis that revolutionizes the M-Chassis genre. The Jimny body that is mounted on the chassis, of course, has been on sale as one variant or another since 1970, gaining numerous fans thanks to its versatility and toughness. The JB23 depicted by this model is one of the 3rd generation Jimnys introduced in 1998 which had a modernized, rounded body design. It featured a feisty little fuel injected, turbocharged 658cc engine and was a popular car in the domestic Japanese market.
