  1. Initially, when I got my two 44B chassis, I was at my friend's place to get 2 cars I had a deal on since few months... The first one is a Super Wheelie (7.2V, not the early version), with a Toytoa Land Cruiser body The second one is a Big Bear, with Lunchbox wheels (unfortunately, I don't have the chance to get one with nice original tires). I wanted those cars to model the chassis. And now that I have some ideas on how to proceed for the body shell, I may even do that. I tore down the Super Wheelie this afternoon, as the project box I was using for the Ninja got free this morning. The chassis is fairly simple. There is more parts on the bodyshell than on the chassis itself :-) At the end (it was definitely very quick to get it in parts), this is the content of my box... The Big Bear should follow at some point as well...
  2. Well, that Big Bear I got of Fee Bay a few days ago now sits disassembled on my bench. Easily the filthiest model I have ever taken apart. Dirt and sand everywhere, very sticky dust, dead spiders in the tires, thick, lugubrious grease in the gears. Many of the bolts have corrosion on them. The tires, while being in okay-ish shape all have multiple flat spots. The tire inserts had their lips bent, almost like scallop shells - how do you do that? You'll see in the picture that one of the screws is not like the others - someone just jammed a screw that was way too big into the back of the wheel. Nice job. I'm guessing that when this was put away the last time it was run hard and put away wet, so to speak. Whatever double sided tape that held the ancient receiver in place was clearly made out of the material that they make the little black boxes out of that are on jets. Wish the whole truck was made of that stuff, it'd last forever. Oh yeah, the front body mount and the bumper were broken. However I'm not deterred. As I go along, I'm sure I'll have questions... as a matter of fact I have one now - what is the best way of cleaning small metal parts? I was thinking of soaking them in mineral spirits or something similar, but not sure. Could always dowse them with Dawn dish soap and near boiling water. Was wondering what everyone else would do? Also a serious plus came with this Big Bear - an MIP ball diff. So the transmission won't bean issue. I hope.
  3. As per title looking for information on options, hopups and tuning info for the Marui Big Bear. MIP or whoever else. Tried google Found some intel but there is little that got documented. Fotos, Build Info, old instructions highly welcome. Got a v1 myself with mint original gearbox interested if I can still make a runner out of it for a decent price with alternativ parts. thx
  4. as title says, I am looking for a Marui Big Bear manual version 1 and/or 2. original, copy or scan.

    Marui big bear

    Hi I'm looking for some parts for my big bear good tyres with no splits etc. front bumper if you have anything please let me know thanks
  6. Hi, I have 3 sets of Marui Big Bear wheels/tyres available, 1 set exc cond., 2 sets good cond.(perfect for running).
  7. So straight out of the old garage comes the relics. I LOVED the Samurai when I was a kid but I think it's all too far gone. The Big Bear however could be quite easily salvaged, and I must admit the body looks nice. It was actually a mates when I was a kid and I ended up with it. Man, 30 years... Also have the Team Associated RC10 with graphite upgraded chassis which is in far better condition. Memories... (And yep, the Big Bear front tire was glued on the wrong, hence why I didn't build it!)
