It's the hard to find Winger Body Parts Set for the Boomerang chassis.

I found it in a corner of a old hobbyshop, down written from 39.- to 10.- Swiss Francs (!!! = 6.- Euro !!!).

Chassis is restored and the Body is built from the box.

Which means it, which rims look better, chromium-plated or white???




I think it looks mutch better then the with rims Body Parts Set Manual Body Parts Set Manual

This body brings back some good memories! I converted my Bigwig to a Boomerang chassis in about 1987 and they didnt have a Boomerang body in stock so i had to go with the Winger body.Got quite used to it in the end and made it a coca cola version with Parma decals.Ive looked for this a few times but never found one.Love it...looks good!

Hi, I have a NIB one in my showroom and it has got a mosquito-like insect in it. Does your bodyshell have one or it is just me who has got a 'faulty' Tamiya product ? Please kindly tell me as I never got any reply to it and it really left me puzzled. Thanks, Gary

no, sorry, i have only a quite normal bodyshell, no insects, no fossilized reptiles.

Oh man that looks great. I haven't seen one posted on TC in a while and cannot think of anyone else with so many photos of one mounted and painted so nicely. @Ruffryder, would love to see any vintage photos you might have of yours too. I will find a body one day, but until then, I will have to drool over yours.
