FINISHED! Is this the best looking buggy or what?
This has been built from 99% New in Pack parts as an (expensive!) homage to my first owned-from-new R/C car back in the '80s. And what a joy it's been to build.
The paint job was challenging to get right, and some parts are very difficult to find, particularly: Motor, whip aerial, front wheels, white battery box.
All parts were genuine Kyosho, including gearbox internals, but the body is one of Marwan's (Integra Fan) EXCELLENT reproductions, and the screws are Team Fast Eddie stainless steel all round (you may have seen those on eBay, you get loads of extras!). As usual the Kyosho decal sheet doesn't actually allow box-art so I just did my best.
Enough of the chat, enjoy the pictures of this Kyosho classic buggy!

Impressive! Anyone that ever restored a vintage buggy knows how mush work that is needed to get good results. That is just awsome, congrats!

An awsome buggy! The paint job is excellent, looks very racey and ready to hit the dunes. Real top work. Please re-post with shots of it in its natural habitat, it'll go straight into my faves.

indeed, beautiful work, and congrats for the difficult hunt results (360E, wheels, tires, roll cage)... I know how hard it is to find them!
