Sent an email to Pro-line/Protoform asking if they will make a body that we can run in this class. Haven't heard back from them yet. I did suggest to them that these type of bodies will mount very nicely on the new 200mm pan car chassis and should appeal to the basher market as well. Hopefully will get a positive response back.

As far as a Boss 302 Mustang, I finally saw an unpainted Pegasus Body and the mold looked pretty good - except for the front bumper being a bit boxy. Much much much much much much much better than the Parma 302 Mustang. I also have seen the Parma Camaro - not so bad, and the Parma Cuda - not very good.

That is just beautiful. I can see that I'm going to end up with several bodies!

Question -- does the HPI GT 350 body come with the side stripe decals? How about the hood stripes? Who makes the paint that's closest to Wimbledon White and Guardsman Blue? Does someone sell numbers in circles like that?

Testor's Model Masters paint has some reasonably accurate lacquer paints that come in rattle cans. http://www.testors.com/catalog_browse.asp?ictNbr=95

They do make Wimbledon White, but not sure on the blue. You might be able to find a close match for the blue.

Pegasus Boss Mustang





It's very close in size to the HPI Camaro. The other Pegasus bodies are larger, I call them 1/9th scale. It is fun to run the giant Cuda though.
