From Tamiya Corporation, Yura Design Electric R / C 4WD Racing Buggy Reprint version “Big Wig (2017)” will be released on Saturday March 11 this Saturday.
“Big wig” is the year 1986, 31 years ago.
The 4WD Racing Buggy RC car released as the 10th anniversary model of Tamiya Electric RC car birth.
Yura is in charge of the body design, and the body design is developed jointly by Tamiya (then: Tamiya model).
Tamiya who does not design the model outside the company was also talked about by appointing Yura as a designer.
This time it will be released, “Big wig (2017)” of the reprinted version added with improvements without changing the basic composition at the time.
The logo of the body also differs somewhat.
I think that the mark of our company “MOONCRAFT” is placed large in the rear wing, too.
