This is the remote control truck that I got for my birthday back in 1984.
It was made by Tokyo Marui. A Japanese company that makes airsoft guns (they shoot small plastic balls.) Tokyo Marui specializes in miltary replica airsoft guns. They also made a 1/24th scale radio controlled Japanese Ground Self-Defense Forces Type 90 Main Battle Tank that shoots airsoft BB's. Precision Arisoft has some good pictures of the Tokyo Marui gun line up.
