I have both of them, never cut and painted and I probably never will.... They really wouldn't fit on a TC chassis anyway.

I've never taken a serious look at it, for a TC fitment, but it looks like it could be a very easy fit. Doesn't have a deep channel between front fenders and cockpit. Should make it easy to massage the form to clear the front drivetrain of a TC. Might be my next shell.

The FDM form has taken much longer than anticipated. It was supposed to be a 150 hour job, but power outages have delayed us. Looks like it should finish up in the AM. I'll post pics tomorrow.

I used to run McCallister GTP bodies when rc racing was 1/10th pan cars
the Toyota GTP was really nice. I miss the gtp classes. I am looking forward toward the future with a contemporary MLP chassis.

Those Mcallister bodies brings back some old school memories.
I really like the Castrol Jag bodies...
Andy's GTP bodies were also great looking.
here are 2 of my favorites..Nissan's
still have an unpainted Jag body still sitting in my garage.

Looking at all those prototype bodies makes me wish I had of stocked up on them when they were still available....

Default Porsche GTP body

Hey guys how about this:

http://www.rcmart.com/catalog/produc...ducts_id=18864

Its made to fit the new Tamiya touring pan car so why shouldn't fit a regular pan car?

Also, Protoform made Porsche body for the AE RC10LT except that the body was too low to fit over the shock towers of the tourers at that time. I'm sure if someone can find that body, it would fit some of the newer cars. (T2, RDX, Evo 5 etc...)

Ssam, if you made more than one, I certainly will buy you one to test it... hehehe!! It's been years looking for an Audi LeMans....

One question though, how do you plan to solve the refrigeration holes? Are you planning to open it or just smooth them?

cheers and good luck,
