The Dapretto Chaparral 2F is now available in the UK. Rather steeply priced at £125 each, though.

On the subject of Chaparral's, pictured below is a 2J which Mark Gussin kindly built for me, based on one of Peter Pre's superb resin kits.

With kind regards,

howmet tx, posting pictures is fairly easy. First open an account with, its free. You can then upload pictures to their site. Once you get your pictures uploaded you need to link them here. Only the text of your post is on the server that hosts this board, the pictures come from proxy servers. On the Photobucket site under each picture there is a box that is labeled URL. The URL is the address of your picture on the Photobucket server. Just copy down what is in the box for each picture, you will notice that most of it is the same for all of the pictures, except for the file name. When you want to put a picture in your post hit the IMG button and type the URL in the dialog box. Those old Lancer bodies still look great, even after all these years.
Howmet TX, I knew you could do it! That "lowly" vacuum formed body does look great. I did a Lancer Chaparral 2E back in the '60s with a wing, I did win races with it, but it was a little tippy in the slow corners. Is the picture you posted a scan of a photograph or a still from a camcorder? In any case you will get better results from a digital camera. You don't need a lot of megapixels since you have to shrink the pictures to post them, but more expensive cameras offer a lot more flexibility for difficult lighting conditions, macro photography, etc..
