It won't post the image right. The original instructions work.

I think it could possibly an associated 12th scale. I am not sure of model number, but remember seeing something like this before. I think it came somewhere in the 90's..

Would make a neat project though!

thank you all.... yes it does look just like the 12e. im gonna take the whole thing apart and then clean it all up. It needs a new receiver but my friend has one from this time era new in the box, and ill just use that. He got this 12e and a sand scorcher for free from his neighbor, and sold this one to me for $15!

thank you all for the info...

Those aren't Novak servos, someone else back in the early 80s had orange servos. Can't remember who but I saw them all the time. AstroFlight maybe?

Not late 80's. Try 1978

It's an RC12e as others have said which came out late in 78, early 79. By the late 80s we had 12i's and I think the first 12L came out by the end of the 80s too.

Multiplex sounds right for the servos.

Don't feel bad, I had to look it up. I was thinking early 80s because I knew it was older than my RC10 which was 1984, so I figured 80-82 maybe. I had no idea it was out in 78 until I looked it up.
