Hope you all had a great christmas.
As the title says Bigwig #3!
This is my 3rd new built bigwig.
1st was a NIB kit I built & listed in my showroom, 2nd was built from new parts - rere boomerang as main donor.
Both of which had to be sold to fund a house move 4 years ago & regretted the sale since :-(
Bigwig 3 was purchased off tc member sherif as a new built rolling chassis back in april 2014 I already had a nib tehnigold motor & bodyset waiting for a home :-)
Just got around to completing it today, body is painted in tamiya PC 1 & 4 Its probably the best out of the 3 bodies I have completed - spent several hours trimming & fitting the rear fenders which are to often absent on most Bigwig bodies, Detailed the tyres, Polished the chassis underside & installed a new 8.4V Gold battery & its done!,
Just on the look out for a new period futaba attack r transmitter & receiver.
Thanks for looking

Great looking Big Wig! I might have a Attack R and reciever in my box of old Futaba stuff, it will be used if I have one and not new.
