Richard's badly broken 1:12 Kyosho Peugeot 205 Turbo 16. Was my first new buy. 2 months 4 days ago #54903

The Pug came up in a thread not long ago.

I had to find my remaining parts to see how bad it really is.

Here is a picture from summer 91'. Don't remember if it had been driven or not at this stage.
I bought this new in a shop for my confirmation funds I got. I wanted this for a really long time!


Sadly this beauty was short lived as it lost signal at full speed hitting a concrete wall on top of a hill.
I remember this was rapid for it's size.
At full throttle from stand still this would leave marks i the asphalt!

I ran up the hill and hoped it would lear that wall as it was only a few metres long and there was a grass driveway right beside it to the left.
Sadly it missed that grass driveway by a metre or so.

Chassis was bent 90 degree more or less, all plastc bits broken but body was still on the chassis and it had no damage! Not a single dent or a crack anywhere!
Think the thick brush on paint saved it as the body is heavy.

Yeah baby!


Had to clear some boxes first lol


A little brochure and motor tech sheet in norwegian


Nice for future reference regarding Kyosho motor spec


Chassis bent back as good as I could do back then.
I shall see if I can get this better.
May end up make a new one in carbon or something in that direction.
Parts for these is rare and I got hold of a chap with a NIB on for 50 dollar shipped.
I can't afford that now sadly (try to get my 1:1 Capri on the road this summer)


Radio plate as the upper chassis is called is broken.
This is also hard to come by.


I did try to make one in metal and wood back in the day.
Think I can do better these days..


How do the wheel/tires look after a head on with a concrete wall at full speed you may ask??
Not good is the short answer :ohmy:








Rears are much better, but needs to be changed too




Funny thing, all of the suspension compnents are ok belive it or not!
Arms and knuckles that is.


Useable bits, but the read parts have some cracks in them

I did buy a spare chassis a decade ago, but it's as bad as mine and missing the same bits to make it complete.
But shocks are better than mine. I did use nose pliers when I built mine and I ended up scratching the shafts..


The rear steering block is broken on this too


I hate to see "repairs" like this


Radio plate is broken on this to.
But between mine and this I should be able to make a copy


Spare chassis came with two wheels, but don't think these are useable


And lastly my survived body.
I need new decals for this, but I do not want the MCI ones this time as those have not the yellow indicators and the headlights are different too.
So if any know a orginal decal sheet or a good repro, let me know!


I have wanted to rebuild this for years!

I wish you luck finding the parts for this, it truly is a nice looking car, I would like to see this come back to life :)
If you can't fix it with a hammer, you've got an electrical problem mate :)
