Marui Samurai ,Ninja's & Galaxy.... Post your pics please.

Post by Mad Racer »

I love the Samurai & Ninja's.

Still got to finish mine off but all re built with fresh race rubber.

I remember seeing one of these in it's dai racing in mod and was super quick with run time to burn. Super light weight as stated on the instructions of 1 kg. Love the look of the Ninja but i don't think it was as good as the Samurai ..

A Samurai that I bought maybe 5 yrs ago. It appears to have very limited run time on it and is complete with Hi-Tech radio. Except for the additional stickers that someone added in 1991, it appears to be a nice original car.

That's a Coors-Melling T-Bird. I have one of those too.

Looks like a good clean car there - shouldn´t be a problem to locate a battery lid. Think Blue Groove has some repro Thunderbird body´s.

Thank you Marc! The wheels are Pargu's, the sideguards are dirt burners, and the shock bodies are polished stockers. I like my bling! :lol:

One of my all time favorite Samurais Mark. I salivated over your build thread!

Don't know any more - have to look at it but I don't believe it's a vintage motor. I think it was picked for the color of the endbell..

Thanks guys.

Some nice pic's there.

Gary the blue endbell motor i think is a Le Mans 480S if it's a Kyosho.

I see Pargu 2000 wheels are quite popular . Really was in two minds to get them. Not cheap but are awesome on a Samurai .

Just got my self a Ninja. Painted in purple with matching wheels. ( Yuck )

Will be ordering a new shell & decals to return her
to box art.
