Finally finished this project. I wanted to make a WO in different paintscheme. But since the WO-chassis is part of the body shape it needed coloring too, in my opinion. I used the TC repro decals, where orange is yellow!? It took me some time to determine what parts should be 'whitened' and wich should be black. Specially around the front.
But i am very happy with the result. This thing flies with a Sport-tuned :-P

Looks superb in white. I'm convinced this kit must be on the verge of a re-release, it's one of the few iconic '80s buggies that has not been done yet.

That is nice, your color execution is done well. Now go get it dirty and the colors will be perfect.

Hi Loris, i was wondering if you have complete the build you told me 2 years ago and finaly found your very special Wild One. Thats a superb rebuild and i love the white/black colorations. Maybe you have inspired tamiya the re release the FAv with a black roll cage? Maybe a re release, also with black roll cage Wild One follow to the FAV?
