Tamiya’s re-issue initiative continues to bring back the oldies. The Subaru Brat was originally issued in 1983 and has been re-issued in 2007. As expected, the re-issue remains very faithful to the original while adding a few improvements.
This shot of the chassis is from the side of the box and details the chassis components nicely. The Brat uses the same chassis as the Frog.
Nice thing about these re-issues is that many of their parts can be used to update other vintage Tamiya models. In this case, the Subaru Brat uses the same wheels and tires that are on the Ford Ranger F150 XLT. In addition to the Ranger, the tires are the same as the rear tires on the Rough Rider and Fast Attack Vehicle.
