Hi, i see that some people have reproduced some of the Tamiya and Kyosho bodies and i read in a forum here that someone has reproduced a couple of Schumacher bodies too.
What bodies that are no longer available would you like to see reproduced?. A few Tamiya have been suggested already (listed below).
Porsche 959
Celica Gr.B Rally
Escort Cosworth
Kyosho Maxxum
Toyota Celica
Wild One
King Cab
BMW M3
Lancia Delta
Mercedes 190
Clio Williams
Toyota Blitz Supra

Question is what would you like to see?.

A couple of people already do Tamiya Porsche 959 replica bodies (Kamtec and some place in Canada).

I'd like to see a Schumacher CAT XLS body, wing & undertray

Yeah i was told that someone was doing the bodies, i think that we need a body with decals though for 959 as decals are very expensive and repro of those would go well with a body. ;-)
Good suggestion on the CAT XLS.

Kamtec`s shells are excellent quality, have just recieved a procat shell from them. Sourcing decal sheets is difficult though, anyone know if there is someone doing repro procat decals?.

Kamtec are the people you need to contact. Look on their website and even though a lot isnt on their site call them to find out if they do the shell that you want. They can even make a new mold if a new shell or gear cover is provided. He apparantly also makes stickers so the worlds your oyster with them. The quality is second to none and I have dealt with them for several years and do exactly what they say, with quality finish as well.:thumbsup:

Seems to have gone off track this one and become an advert for kamtec lol.
What this thread is about is what you would like to see thats NOT available from Keith or anyone else for that matter, oh and while we are at it Marwans reproduction Kyosho are much better than Kamtecs for simlar price you get decals too, thats value for money!. (free plug for Marwan there!).
back to topic, whats not available that you would like to see available.
Thanks
P.S. to those who followed the thread apologies.

Kyosho Stinger MkI and Stinger MkII

I have a brand new original MkI uncut body I would sacrifice for the cause.

Does anyone in the US make reproduction shells?

oh wow! i didn't know there were MkI reproduction bodies. Who makes them?

as for the Mk2. would you need an uncut body?

Marwan makes the bodies and decals for mk1, i myself have 4/5 mk1 bodies if you need one?. Marwan also does decals for mk1. P.M. Me if you want details.
Yes i would need an uncut body for stinger MK2 to make a mould from.
Same goes for the Cat covers and wing!.
