Hi folks,

Looking to identify the body on the right, the yellow one. They where made in the mid to late 80's. I can't remember who made them. They where very lean and swoopy bodies. Thanks

I know it has a parma sticker on it, but thought it was another MFG.

(Looking for an unpainted one...)

This is just a guess but it could be MRP.

to late in the game for MRP. To new.

left, protoform 1603??
right, not sure,

Regardless of stickers, I'm thinking both bodys were around about the time of the 12L3. for some reason, I'm feeling 1996-1999 in that period.

Hmmm, Mugen?

I know I ran them in 85' 86', but mugen was not a common name at all at the time and area i was in. Is it possible that another US company re-sold them as one of their's? I got them separate with no car, had a couple of them.
This is one of the most elusive bodies I have tried to track back down. It looked modern and new, compared to the osella and toj at the time.
Does someone have a pic of the mugen with this body?
Thanks for the help, folks.

Tracy

Another unknown body. Someone know what this is?
Actually looks a little like an AYK Nova 54S as sold with their RX2000 but cockpit area looks different.

Default Guess the body on the left

Let's see if anyone remember this body, the painted one on the left, not the clear one since it's too hard to tell.

I have a magazine i can scan later but all of the Japanese bodies look ahead of their time compared to the American bodies. Japanese bodies looked better but American bodies worked better.

That's a Protoform Courage C41 part number 1605, circa mid '90s.

What is MCS? Never heard this.
Does that mean it is an AYK body and from which car?
Are there pictures from a painted MCS?

The clear one is a Ferrari 333. Couldn't remember who makes it, but I've had it painted with a MOMO Moretti style.
