Monster Beetle Black edition (2015) 1:10 Scale RC kit

Extended Description

The Monster Beetle is back…in black! This is a cool Black Edition of the Tamiya classic. It features dedicated body and chassis colors that endow a true Tamiya classic with a brand-new look.

The original Monster Beetle #58060 was released back in 1986. After a long absence it is back as an updated assembly kit ready to traverse back yards across the country.

The model features a stylized version of the timeless Volkswagen Beetle body, mounted on an all-action 2WD chassis fitted with big tires for rough-and-tumble off-road fun.

This updated version promises to be great fun for both beginners and Tamiya R/C kit veterans alike!
