We will have something new for 1/12 in the near future. Until then, our AMR and Strakka cover most 1/12 needs.

I am just here to say that ProtoForm customer support is the bomb! I had a defect on a new body and they squared it away, like a boss!

Will the Type S body start to come with your new wing hardware or is just the D9?
And how thick is your TS-18 pre-cut wing couldn't see it listed?

Yes, the Type-S and MS7 are now shipping with the new hardware.

The TS18 wing is .030", which is a medium weight in between the light weight stock wing, and the ultra heavy .040" Pro-TC wings.

My FOREVER dream is that Protoform would develop a modern 1/12th scale LMP1. Well..., scale as much as is aesthetically and aerodynamically possible.
There have been some beautiful 1/10th scale examples produced over the past couple years by some other sources, but no one has attempted 1/12th.
