Question - how many versions of Big X V-3 did Imai release?   Anyone know, by chance?

 

Here are two that I have;

The bodies are the same - the dark gray graphite painted V3 (with orange box) came with gearbox, wiring, and pins for walking and arm swinging.

The lighter colored kit is just the body - but is molded the same and could fully function if you could get the hardware.

I did a mix of paints with a flat coating - no decals on the eyes, but I added leds.

 

At first glance, I thought that the version I have on the right is the same as Tinplate6's from the late '90's, but there are differences.    

 

Regardless - they are fun kits.  The pin walker really hauls with fresh batts in him!

Cheers,

MG what can I say except

I love 'em.

You are indeed a very talented model maker/painter.

 

Let's hope for your wife's sake there are not too many variations.😉 😂 🚀
