ok, but it reminded me of a 909.

So the critical issue to me is how to get the nice paint job up in the fins?!

Nice!! Want one!

What will these openings on the side do with the air?

Robert_K:
What you're seeing is only a shape that's molded into lexan and then enhanced with some air brushing. Not meant to be opened. Just an attempt to add realism.
On the "real" 1:1 racecar it's a small part of a very complex aerodynamic package - to vent and release underside airflow from the nose area.

They are stickers. All PROTOform 1:12 and 1:8 bodies now include the headlights on the decal sheet.

looks SUPER low on the chassis.... I'm starting to wonder if my electronics will fit under the recessed points to either side of the cockpit...

Does this mean that AMR's and other "older" bodies will now include headlights as well, or that all 12th and 1/8th bodies introduced from now on will? If teh altter I am assuming they will all be the same headlight, yes?

DesertRat;
I assure you that the TR-12 is no lower (at any particular point) than the AMR-12. Only thing that'll require change is the rear body mounts need to be slightly longer.

andrewdoherty:
The AMR-12 is now going to be shipped with with it's own headlight decals, as will the 3 existing 1/8th IC on-road bodies. It will take a while for the bodies w/decals to circulate through the system however. (distributors - dealers - hobby shops) A little patience will be required here.

AdrianM;
Really nice to hear from you bud! Everything good in Flo?

The looooong overdue WGT body is shaping up quite nicely. All I can say is that
Gianna will be at the Snowbirds - and looking pretty svelte.

So many WGR racers are ticked at me - I gotta make this something special - if i'm able. I'm giving it all I got.

Default AVAILABILITY?

Lot's of guys asking "When's the TR-12 available".

Due to the time of year, only a few more workdays before Christmas, and the fact that the Proline/Protoform team are off work from Dec 21 - Jan 2/13 the new bodies will only start to ship the first week of January.
