Volkwagen Beetle Radicon , Made in Japan
an actual RADICON VW BUG in YOUTUBE
Early this year on a snowy morning of January 2009, I chanced upon this very old RC made by Radicon in an old antique shop in Nagoya. I was very skeptical if I should buy it since this is an RC and not a diecast. It was so dirty and the dust was quite thick when i bought it. The only consolation was that the styro packaging was still intact and so was the controller. When i got it home in Manila, my wife commented that once again I brought home another trash from abroad. However as usual she recanted her comment when she saw the item after I detailed it and cleaned it from top to bottom. It was a diamond in the rough.
My friends, meet my 1:18 RC VW Beetle Radicon, Made in Japan.
