may seem a stupid question but anyway...

still fixing the big wig, putting the technigold in & noticed i'm missing the motor plate. Looked around on the net to buy one and was thinking, surely i can make one of these myself? any suggestions? what do you actually need one for?

Hi Mate,

The Motorplate for the Tamiya Bigwig is the same as the one thats on the Boomerang.
The Boomerang has recently been Re-released(I've just bought one:cool:), so you can now get the Motorplate quite easily.
Almost all of the Gearbox Parts are the same on the Bigwig & Boomerang, but Tamiya has Changed many of the Part Numbers on their Re-released Kits, so its made it alittle confusing for People, who want replacement Bits for their original Models.
The NEW Part Number for the Motorplate is 4305125, which Costs around 1.25 from your Local Tamiya Dealer.........at that Price, its hardly worth trying to make one! Eventhough it looks like that its only made of thin Cardboard.

Hey,

Yeah, i thought too that it was only thin cardboard, needed some screws so bought them & the motor mount at the same time to save on delivery costs!
