TOPIC: Richard's 58070 Blue Midnight Pumpkin

Richard's 58070 Blue Midnight Pumpkin 2 months 2 weeks ago #54487

Back in November 16' I was lucky to buy two vehicles, a Striker which was complete with box, transmitter and everything. And in a semi good nick.
In the same trip I bought this gem, a MP from a mates son which wanted to raise some money, so this was up for grabs.

As I had a errands in the same area (200km away from home) I picked up both vehicles within about 10 miles from each other.
A really good day.

Back home it became apperent that the pictures was indeed as good as the vehicle itself.
Take a look for yourself :)









Complete with radiogear, minus the transmitter as the seller had a need for itself


Really nice example, just a bit dusty


Futaba never fails :y:


Underside was very good too


But the best bit was this, the mighty Technigold :woohoo:


Vintage ofcourse :) Think this had very little runs


Same goes for the body :y:


Think the owner/owners have driven this very carefully on slow speed, eveident after the heat from the resistor.


It was a bit more dusty than the first pictures would have it

After a bath the body looks really good




Chassis came up as new.
Since it was very little dusty, I only removed the transmission and electrick gizmos before it took a skinnydip


One more from under the body


Transmission were like new inside


Back together




Body all cleaned and fitted. And tires got a wipe of vinyl/rubber refreshner






With body off


Really happy to have this in my collection.
Maybe too nice to be driven outside.
There is loads of grass fields around me, but every vehicle is green from pollen after a run during the summer time and this is too nice to be green all over it.
But it may get one of my 4 Futaba Attrack R transmitters to make it complete :)
