It turned out very nice indeed Stefano. However, I am disappointed that you let it go.. I hope that you replace it - possibly with a re-re

Looks a top job Stefano, you must have enough bits around to build another?

@stickerbod ...no, sadly there are only smal bits left over for the Wild One and new parts are very hard to find. After you buy the last chassis from me two years ago, i never come across again to a new one. So i let go also most of the other parts. Thanks for your comment

@all Thank you very much for your empathize. How could i sell it? I had this plans already before i come back in this hobby 3 years ago. I did`nt have any space on my shelf as i had alredy decided to keep my Fast Attack Vehicle that i have since 1985. There is something special when i watch my old FAV and i have many emotional attachments with my FAV. Many childhoud memories. Once in 1990 my FAV accompanied my also at my holidays and i drove at the dunes of the beaches of Korfu / Greece with him. I like also the Wild one, but i buy it in an other era. The handling and road holding was much better due to the wider front axles, the wider wheel diameter, the higher chassis clearance and the 4 oildampers. The FAV is a ugly duckling compared with the Wild One and this circumstance gave me more sympathies for the FAV ..... until i spend over 40 hours only for strip of the color of the driver and repaint it with a lot of passion. This gave it a new identity and wake up my emotions for my Wild One again. Especialy the driver looks very kind to me after the repaint (before there was only a white painted helmet with a red face. When i was packing all for dispatch, i seem to see how sad-eyed and dissapointed the driver sit behind the steering wheel... I am very sorry my Wild One driver for my late recognition. I am shure you will be happy again with your new owner. He had make the same mistake like me 20 years ago with his own Wild One. Him was happy like a child as him saw you in a local auction house and told me that him was searching for ages for an other one, but did not remember the model and company name. Its shure that him will never let you go away from him and that you will have a very special place at your now home! I will shurely buy one of the re release and paint it again like i had paint you!!

sad that you sold your wild one stefano and think it's worse when you have had it such a long time. Most of my collection i have bought recently but my pride is my original blackfoot which i have owned since new and would never part with. When the re-re appears im sure one of the very 1st will be off to you .

One of my all time favorite Tamiya's. With just minor modifications and care it was a winner. This one looks in immaculate condition.
