They are all PS, just re-badged.

Previously about the BittyDesign F1 body:

No, but I do think they started out with the F104 Pro body. This is an old Pro body:



And here is my painted BittyDesign:



The cockpit, engine cover, nose, etc, even the vents on the side pods are a 1:1 copy. They modded the side pods by leaving out the 'wings' and they added a little ramp before the rear wheels. Bitty Design, lotty copy, as far as I can see. My body even has marks in it of a casted mould, with uneven spread release agent. I make my own bodies, too, and recognise the marks. They told me I accidentally got a pre-production item and the since made adjustments, but I feel they are not 100% original in their design.

Nevertheless it will probably be a very good body, and it looks nice.

All the F1 tires I've gone through and never noticed. I did realize they were at least made by the same mfg as all the Pit and various clones. Live and learn.
