Testors Bonzo

Post  OneWingLow on Sun Feb 26, 2017 7:23 pm

I bought a Testors Bonzo on Ebay.  It is worn but capable of being cleaned up.  

I need help in knowing what  and where the decals were when new.  Are an replacement decals available for sale/

Any help or information will be appreciated.

The only RTF plastic gas powered Bonzo was made by Aurora and had no decals, I wonder it you're thinking the Cosmic Wind version by Testors?

Here's some photos that may help, finding replacement decals might be tuff, i'd use a hair dryer and carefully remove them, clean and detail, then reinstall with rubber cement.

Thanks all for the helpful posts.

I have since added a chrome plated Cosmic Wind.

I have also acquired a couple of RTF twins (see posts).
