    The white/blue is actually a Jag hobbies body/DR-3 chassis combination also available in other color combinations. The AFX “square nose” is a repaint and will be detailed and finished in the Brumos “famous 59” livery once the paint is finally cured.

    Since we lost a lot of photos when SCI crashed, I'd thought I would repost these. Originally this was an AFX McLaren M8b that I stretched out and made a resin body of it. This is sitting on a Tyco Pan chassis with the LWB configuration. I may have to bring this back if it fits the newest 1.7" chassis.

    Look close and you'll see a face inside the helmet!!!

    I also add scratch built mirrors to all my bodies. And lastly, I apply two coats of Pledge acrylic floor polish to protect the bodies for racing. Although these are mostly parade cars since I would go nuts if they got damaged.
    They all look great. I guess the floor polish helps explain why the red Ferrari and the blue Porsche seem to shine and reflect the light so well!

    What changes/updates were made to the #6 Sunoco Porsche and the #16 RC? Are they complete repaints as well? The stripes look very good.

    I am trying to limit how many chassis type I have and therefore reduce spare part inventories. I love Viper chassis - they just flat out work. Fast, smooth and consistent.

    Bonez, outstanding stuff, as always! Interesting you have made a decision to use the Viper (Super G+ style) chassis for all of them; some can certainly sit lower on a Mega G 1.5.........

    That being said, all are no doubt quick, and as we all need to meet our own requirements, they are outstanding......

    They all look amazing. Are any of them "stock" bodies? Seems like they all have more detail/decals and better looking paint jobs than the ones in my collection.

    I especially like the matching wheels on on the number 6 Sunoco Porsche (it's called a 510K in my mind since that's the way I learned it way back in the day...)

    Coach D, there was a thread a loooong time ago about remounting the AFX Ferrari 312PB on a more competitive chassis. Gary Fast ("Fastbodies") went with the TYCO 440x2, and extended both the wheelbase AND the car body.

    I think I found a better solution, in the Mega G 1.5, with the center section of the body clip cut out, and the side pieces Super-glued to the chassis:

    IMG_0429.JPG IMG_0430.JPG IMG_3103.JPG

    As you can see, the bodies sat low; only one of the three I converted needed a bit of sanding underneath, and on the Mega G 1.5 (with suitable rear tires and front end) are very quick.

    As for whom they would have competed against, this car first appeared in 1970; so, Porsche 917K, Ferrari 512S, Lola T70 Coupe (in the "Sports" category) and various "specials" with the 3-liter Cosworth DFV stuffed into previously under 2-liter chassis (Lola would be one).
    1971-72, then the Matra , Alfa Romeo 3-liter Prototypes ( these have been made in cast-resin or Lexan) would have been the main protagonists, with the Cosworth powered Lola t-280 (Bonnier team) prominent in 1972.......
    Cool solution. Thanks for all the racing history. I love that stuff. Seems like I recall reading somewhere that the when AFX released the 312PB, it was a big deal (G-Plus chassis and the great detail of this body).

    AFX made so many cool Can-Am (Interserie?) bodies. I need a flow chart to keep up with all them.

    I also use a metal clip that I glue to all my bodies that allow me to slam the height and set the stance. It also prevents cracking these old bodies since the plastic gets brittle with age. This method does not require splaying out the body to fit the factory side mounts.
