Great colour! Would be really great to score the blue parts in front in the same green you used on the body.

You're right, Tamiyastef. With this blue, we could say the Bigwig looks like a toy
But, as we can see in the post of mongoose1983 - BIGWIG Auto8 Review (French) January 1987 (4-Jan-2011) :
[Click here]

It was the first time I saw the Bigwig with a beautiful scheme ( at this time, my friend had a Bigwig, but totally red : not really beautiful).
When I was young and without enough money to buy my own Bigwig, I read this article for many many time !
I Personally cannot change this blue

Thank you for the link, I've never seen that before. Your Bigwig looks better than the one in the magazine. Great idea to let the green follow the curve of the orange and yellow stripes! It takes a 3D printing wizard to get the parts in green I guess.

Haha, the BIGWIG looks beautiful, and EXACTLY like in that Auto 8 magazine from over 33 years ago!

Love the colours! I did mine the same when I saw it hiding in a few shots of the original tv commercial.

It’s wonderful! I painted mine the same color 30 years ago...
I think I’ll shed a little tear... Thank you!
