Tamiya immortalizes the Philippine icon with the mini 4WD, Dyipne
Posted by Ram Ronquillo June 03, 2019

Tamiya, in collaboration with The Brickyard and Lil’s Hobby Center, will be releasing the Dyipne, a limited edition mini 4WD based on the Philippine jeeps.

The launch of Dyipne is to commemorate the Tamiya Mini 4WD Asia Challenge which The Brickyard and Lil’s Hobby Center will be hosting in Manila on June 20-23. Along with this, it coincides with the one-year anniversary of The Brickyard.

The Tamiya 4WD Asia Challenge is expected to feature some 250-300 total competitors from 10 countries, including Singapore, Hong Kong, Malaysia, Thailand, Korea, and more. The winner of this will head to Japan on November to compete in the World Championships.

“We are fortunate to be hosting this event for the first time in the Philippines and that is a testament to the popularity here in the Philippines,” mentions Ferdie Kahn, owner of The Brickyard

The Brickyard is located on the 3rd floor of Glorietta 2 in Makati City. Here, Tamiya fans and enthusiasts can meet and build and tune their cars on world class tracks.

The new Tamiya kit itself is not only very Filipino in look but it is also manufactured in Cebu. The Dyipne has the details of the jeeps to a tee. It features bright colors, the horses on the hood, and even features the route which spans from Paranaque to Quiapo through Makati.

“It is really exciting to finally have a kit that is truly and uniquely a Philippine cultural icon,” Kahn added.

The Dyipne is available in the Philippines and arrives on June 6. It will exclusively be sold by Lil’s Hobby Center and The Brickyard.
