(3) 1/5 scale FG BMW M3 bodies for sale

These are extremely rare 1/5 FG bodies...the two new ones were special ordered from Germany at a t cost of $300 each!!!(duties even pushed the price higher but I have nitemares for that so no comment) yikes..the Malboro one is completely painted and customed decaled and the 3/4 finish BMW racing just need a base white coat to complete( I supply the paint).You CANNOT buy these bodies in Canada and needs to be special ordered from the USA..the wait time is 6 weeks if you order them from the USA and then sometimes it take longer depending when the store orders their supplies.my price is $225 for the Marlboro and $200 for the 3/4 finish..the used body is $100..remember this is body only no chassis..you can go to Advance Hobbies www.advancehobbies.com in Scarbourgh and see how rare these bodies are and how much its selling for..just say this is not for people on a tight budget.

man just phone the hobby store for cost..1/10 scale bodies they build tons of them.The shell is paper thin ..the 1/5 they built alot less so the actual for the makers are alot less and the lexan is tough...if your comparing 1/10 to 1/5 is like apple/oranges..it cost me about $315 EACH body unpainted,these 1/5 doesnt not come with decals like the 1/10..add another $40 for the paint and decals..and now look at how rare the BMWe30M3 body is and that its FG body not a copy then the price is very fair..

in near mint condition plus tax

daytona: you missed my point... i am looking for 1/10 and the only reason i showed interest in yours is because the e30 M3 shell i had for mine (which i paid $80 in a hobby store) was melted from the exhaust being too close to the shell. Regardless, it wont fit my car and I think its too expensive, especially for ones you already painted ($40 for paint and decals? ripped off)... g luck with the sale though.

Cars are fun and the hobby shop I am affiliated with owns an indoor and out door track. They been pushing me to accept a car just to do demo driving for them and I refused.

I am so busy with just flying alone, they gave me a gas powered aerobatic plane to build do demo flying for them which I am hoping to do this year. I finished the plane since 2004 but was too busy to get out flying a whole lot.

The truck in the pic I bought to as a test bed for our snow mobile conversion kits which we developed.

I also sold onboard video cameras for the trucks and cars which transmits live RT video and audio back to you on an LCD panel, but have no time with that either.

A hobby shop here in Ottawa. A Skyward 40 is a trainer, so i guess there was an instructor with a buddy connected to your transmitter.

We do come up to a big club in Barrie just off the 400. We fly aerobatic airplanes
half the size of the real ones
