This was the build that got me back into RC. Enjoy my bikini top desert style Tamiya Wild Willy!

As said this was the build that got me back into RC. I just bought a couple of Traxxas cars for my kids, but when I was young Tamiya was the brand to go for. As a youngster I owned a Tamiya Super Champ and my brother had a Tamiya Wild Willy M38. Always liked the Wild Willy.

So I bought two used Tamiya Wild Willy 2s and that was the start of a lot of other RCs. These two used Wild Willys were the base for this rebuild and for other Tamiya Wild Willy builds to come. A Part 2 driving video is on the way very soon.

Now I wanted to do something a little different on this one and after seeing a lot of cool Tamiya Wild Willys on the internet and Tamiyaclub I came up with the idea of making a bikini top out of some fabric. Hope you like the end result in this video. Enjoy!
