Old Nikko fans?

Post by Sega2006 » Wed Dec 29, 2021 8:44 pm

Revisited my Childhood this Christmas although not quite the same beast as I had (RIP Mad Cougar), Mum got me the Champion Kart which I will photograph and try and show if people are intrested, it does however have a boo boo where the Pedals and Drivers foot have been damaged but looking at the Complete promo pic it seems to be a vunerable area to things like cabnets and the like so a Previous racer likely had an off and didn't fix her up (Long shot but if you've got or had one, decent photos of the area would be real handy to help me remake the parts).
Of course as the years went by I moved onto Tamiya and then real Cars, but I'll always remember Nikko for being part of it, so any other fans left?

I had a few Nikko's as a kid, last one I had was a Nikko Diplomat, about 1:10th scale, took loads of batteries that didn't last long! I now have a stupid amount of Tamiya's!

Of those the only one I've got is the Falcon, may get another kit some day to build something new.
