  1. Thanks Klausen - so it wasn't the Mabuchi RS540-SH shown in the picture I posted?
  2. WANTED Replacement wheel set for Newman Porsche kit 58052. Rebuilding this kit and would like to replace the tires and rims as part of the restoration. Also searching for Nylon band set for holding the battery pack. Thank you in advance
  3. For all the vintage experts with vast amounts of knowledge could you tell me what motor came stock in the blister pack of The Falcon kit 58056? In Tamiya Base they list a couple but neither are the one that is in the kit I purchased this weekend (see attachments). Tamiya Base archives say RS540-S or RS540-SD Black Sprint works. The kit I bought this weekend has the blisters sealed but has the Mabuchi Motors RS540-SH see attachments. Any insight as to what original kit came with the Falcon would be much appreciated.

  5. Tamiya_1971 I was fortunate enough to recently secure a vintage Willy's Wheeler #5839 (still in transit) and then I saw the body set box picture I got confused for a minute until you pointed out what it was
  6. Thanks for the response DaveBuildsRC - I'm feeling pretty dumb for posting right now. If I would spent 30 seconds and read what was on the boxes I would have had my answer. Agreed both boxes are very cool!
  7. Thank you tamiya_1971 that actually makes sense now that you say it. And now that I look at the body set box I can see it's much smaller. Not to mention after looking again it actually says "Body Parts Set" right on the box. Shaking my head right now for posting at all LOL.
  8. Looking for some help regarding the box art differences for the Willy's Wheeler Kit 58039/5839 During my research on this kit I have come across two different box covers. Both seem to point towards being boxes for the original Willy's Wheeler kit 58039/5839, in fact both covers are shown within Tamiyabase in different areas. Does anyone know if both boxes shown in the attachments are for the original Willy's Wheeler kit 58039/5839 and if so why the two different boxes? Thanks

  10. I recently picked up a vintage FOX kit #5851 NIB/unassembled. The kit itself is in great condition but the box, although decent, has seen better days. Its structurally sound , minimal tears just discolored. Has anyone ever successfully restored the color brightness on a stained box (especially the white)? Looking for suggestions on that and or if anyone knows of a replacement vintage box only for sale. I've been fortunate to pick up some really nice vintage boxes and kits recently and this one just stands out as not so nice in the box department. Looking to cleanup or upgrade the box to match the awesome kit inside. Included the FOX box next to the Pajero for comparison in coloring.
  11. So I realize i am abiout a year late to this but is there any chance you still have the Newman Porsche kit? I think I know the answer but thought I better ask. Thanks
