Tamiya Bigwig Kit 47330

The Tamiya one of a kind classic is back! The BIGWIG 4WD off-road buggy was released back in 1986 to commemorate 10 years of Tamiya R/C models and was the first Tamiya car with a body designed by an outside designer: Japanese full size race car designer and team owner Takuya Yura. This re-release version is based closely upon the original, with some tweaks to bring it up to date.

The Bigwig was a landmark in the development of Tamiya RC racing cars and remains highly prized as a collector's car for its unique design. This unique car featured a rack and pinion steering system and distinctive Moon Dish wheels. The body styling was innovative, and as all Tamiya kits were, easy to build and good value for money.
