Bittydesign Seven20 GT12 body shell

Bittydesign from Italy have introduced a new version of the Seven20 GT body shell for the GT12 class. This project was born from the desire to offer to the enthusiast a body shell that could best combine maximum performance together with an all new style never seen before in this class. The body combines maximum performance with true supercar looks, making reference to a British GT3 supercar. The lowered front nose generates excellent steering while the lowered cab and the sculptured shape of the sides stabilise the airflow that conveys into the large rear wing, making the body easy to drive thanks to balanced front and rear downforce. The lid is moulded from high-quality 0.75mm Lexan polycarbonate, it comes clear, including window masks and a precut decal sheet. A suitable rear wing and wing mounting hardware rounds out the package.

JConcepts 1985 Ford Ranger body

The mid-sized truck wars were intense during the 1980’s and 1990’s and the Ford Ranger was a standout during this time. An entire line-up of Rangers was produced with several different trim options available to accommodate an ever-growing truck enthusiast crowd. JConcepts steps into the mid-sized body shell truck market with the 1982-1992 Ford Ranger release. The styling of the Ranger mimics the full-size F-Series at the time with the iconic square body shape. Square and single headlights on the earlier models and then wrap-around, split-light, and turn-signal front-end treatment were showcased on the later versions. JConcepts has taken the opportunity to replicate these different headlight and grille combinations on the included decal sheet so many year models can be reproduced.
