Feels very much like the Stratus 2.0 to me.

Yup I've used in on my 415. Nice shell, but make sure you run the straight wing on it (much more stable rear end), it come with two.
Also slight oversight on Tamiyas part, no window masks....

HGope it helps

I good hold of some of the Tamiya masking sheets, as I needed them to do the design on the shell (I use cans).
Problem is now, I can't seem to find anywhere that stocks em anymore, apparently they were a bit of a limited run thing.
I'm tempted by a Protoform CTS-V as my next shell, been hearing good things about it.

Regards
Ed

BTW got some pics of the shell here

Yep or a Yokomo Type D...since this body is a 95% clone of the Yokomo `D` body.. if you get a chance to see both bodies next to eack other..you`ll see what I mean

It looks more like the Yok D than the PF 2.0.... but if you get a chance look at the roof line and the rear trunk

You can take the legacy and place it over the 2.0 and the hood, roof, and fendors a identicle. The only differance is is the lip on the front of the Legacy is bigger and the rear spoiler on the trunk is also bigger. Even the rear wings are cut the same( kind of round). JDM i've never seen the Yoke D body but i just painted a couple of the E types and they are nothing like the Legacy wich i just paint a bunch of over the last few weeks.
