Joel: I believe I have a 1/32 vac shell. It's unused and would be in good condition except that it is painted (inside, enamel, white). I didn't get any further with it. I'm fairly sure it has the wing.
It's from one of the British producers in the 1970s. I forget which.
If you're interested, I'll mount a search for it. I do remember the little carton it's in; just not sure which big carton that's in.

I have a few other sports-racing shells from the same period (unpainted), including the BRM Can-Am car and (I think) the Autocoast.

Thanks Rob. Much appreciated. And no rush.

I plan on re-popping some of the high quality 60's vac's before they are all gone for myself and others if the need arises.

Yes I realize Patto has lots of vac bodies available. The quality I feel are lacking, but wonderful decals.

Thanks for looking....... Joel

I found the Chap'll 2H shell (and a few others) and Joel has a PM.
The 2H shell has a white cockpit panel instead of the more common black. Anyone remember what brand this was typical of?
Several of the shells I had in this type were SPs, but I don't know if the 2H was one of them.

What you say makes sense, Phil.
I have half a dozen white early/mid-'70s driver-cockpit inserts (sports and s-seater) and eight or nine black, and the shapes/patterns are quite different between the two, but I'm not going to analyse the buckles or start a thread on the subject.
It was a long time ago in another country, as some literary character said on a weightier matter.

I guess this is what John Dilworth has already done with the 2H, as per Russell's photo.

I remember a 2H being available back in the day, probably from GT Models. It was VERY small, as I recall, and the Patto's one is similarly small (I have one - don't bother with it!)

John's version fits a 3" wheelbase by 2.5" wide frame very nicely.

I have Patto's 2H. I didn't realize it was under scale. I understood that his are recasts of vintage bodies and thought most if not all were true to scale..

So that brings up a question. Who made a high quality true to scale 1/32 2H vac? Or even a resin? As far as resin goes I heard that Top Slot made one but I have never seen one.

Joel, I did not mean to imply that the Patto's body is under scale - it is probably correct, as the full size car was short and narrow. John D's body has been "enhanced" to fit a more regular sized frame.

Who did this Chaparral body (see below) ?

Best regards !

André Acker.

Andre - that's the same car that Russell posted, it's the one I built for my visit to NLSME last week, using the Dilworth body.
