I suspected as much.
This is not a Tamiya thing. It has to do with either ebay, the EU or both.
As far as I know there is no trade accord between the EU and HK so they can't tell shops in HK what...

I am not sure how Tamiya can force HK shops not to send to the EU? Take their sales away? That would really hurt Tamiya, because the highest sales outside Japan are from HK.

That may be true, I don't know. Tamiya I think has a very large distributor in Germany who does their job well. But from my experience I can say Xray has more presence in physical shops. Just an...

You don't know if I do or do not have these cars.

Xray. Well, they "optimise".

Jokes aside, Tamiya has been very slow to adopt innovations that had proved themselves useful and performant.

Maybe.
I am not interested in F1 so I wouldn't know, but I'll give you that one on blind faith.

I am not sure where they're going with such a decision. Seppuku, perchance?

They have abandoned the TRF line, so there is nothing of interest for racers and their club/entry level offering is...
