I bought a Lola 210 resin body, happy enough with it but a bit taken aback by the £9 carriage charge. I did email to query at the time but got no reply. A pity as I would have probably been in the market for a few more...

I did try to visualise a £25 body delivered FOC but it didn't really work!

I have two of their Can Am bodies, both about 1/29 scale. Need a lot of work to finish and try and make closer to scale.

I bought the C-type Jaguar and Maserati 450S in resin, they are terribly heavy, I have lightened them by cutting out the cockpit but the Maserati is still much heavier than the same model from Betta. I don't know if AA's fibreglass offering would be lighter, should be as the composite construction allows for less resin than the modern urethane resin/filler system.

I'm embarrassed to admit that I'd never heard of these people.

If I ever get around to making a sports car series they might be very useful.

I have nine AA Bodies on my Le Mans 1955 starting grid:

#11 Cooper T38 (AA 56)
#15 Maserati 300S (AA 32)
#16 Maserati 300S (AA 32)
#32 Bristol 450/C (AA 52)
#33 Bristol 450/C (AA 52)
#34 Bristol 450/C (AA 52)
#47 Cooper T39 (AA 17)
#48 Lotus IX (AA 37)
#60 Stanguellini 750 (AA 53 - original born as an OSCA)

With PCS32 chassis I find they drive reasonable well.

This is why I for years have begged them to offer a Frazer Nash Sebring shell, so that I could include #35 + 36 on the above grid. I have not given up hope yet!
