Marui "Hunter"

Post by THE H.P FREAK »

HI!... I picked this Marui "Hunter" off of Ebay for $40. Seems in really good condition. Front bumper has a few scratches on it but that's about it. I will be basically tearing it down, cleaning it and putting it back together. I've already ordered a new body, decals and headlights for it. Should be a nice addition to my shelf queen collection. :mrgreen:

Good find Neal! That's a stellar price even after all the stuff u had to order. Looks like it will clean up well, just be careful what you clean with :mrgreen: it's not an RC10. I'd stick with mild soap and water personally!

HI!... Ya that's all I usually clean with, just soap & water. The new body, decals and headlights were less than $100. So I'll have less than $150(Can) invested. :mrgreen:

Great find! That looks much better than the one I got a few years back. It took me quite a bit of work to clean it up, and a couple of generous members helped me find the tires, wheels, body and decals. Post pics when you get it cleaned up, or better yet, post pics while you restore it! :D

HI!... Can someone please post up a link to where I can get a online manual for the Marui Hunter? I'm going to start rebuilding this one now but have no manual.

Thanks :

Cool car! That's some crazy looking suspension on there. Does the rear have some sort of anti roll bar to give it some roll stiffness?

Did you consider a hotshot body?

That looks great! The Hunter was my first car - of course as I was something like 12, it only looked that good for about half an hour before I started breaking things... I've been off and on restoring one for a few years, but my goal was to restore it roughly to the short period where I was actually trying to race it and had made a bunch of modifications. Won't be exact, as everything I used was cast off from somebody else's old junkers, and in some cases, I never knew what it originally came from.

Are you going to paint it up, or leave the body clear?
