  • Corvair resins

    Help! guys.
    I want to build a set of 1/32nd Corvair cars. ALL years, all types, and any kind of liveried bodies. Does anyone know about resin bodies? I don't want any crazy expensive original bodies because these cars will be raced. HELP!

    I've seen a 3d file on Cults3d if you can't find a resin one. If you have access to a printer. .

      Dart Hobbies are soon to release a 65' Corvair/Yenko Stinger in resin.

      Cheers

        There is a guy on eBay selling resin Corvair bodies. Starting bids $10. I don't know what they end up going for but there seems to be a steady supply.

              Nope, David gave his equipment and molds to a fellow resin caster, I forgot who it was.

              I'm finding nothing in 1/32nd that is not insanely expensive, but looking at websites in So. America, and other foreign climes, there are cars in races at home tracks that are excellent bodies, and Karmann-Ghias, too. Another favorite of mine.

                Hello everybody,
                Can anyone put me in touch with the Ebay seller who lists the Corvair resin bodies (bfree340) ?
                Have messaged them on Ebay but not had a response. Nothing sinister, simply that I bid on a Pickup when I meant to bid on a Panel Van.
                I got a Pickup from them a while ago, so hoping they can help me out.

                  One of the odd things that came from my driving around Texas when I was in grad school there, was mechanic's shop in Hillsboro that had a yellow/white ramp truck in use hauling parts, and a complete, perfect 1959 El Camino Apache weathering in the sun in front of an abandoned school in another town that had moved on long ago.

                Yeah, I am a fan of these and would love a 1:32 Lakewood Wagon and a 4 door sedan. I cut my teeth with Sunbeam Imps so have a soft spot for rear engined cars.
                For some reason, I am not drawn by the Monza.
