Parma. I always called it (K) a wiggle Womp or mighty Womp. The only two 1/32 anglewinder steel  (K&D) frames that Parma has made.  The first one was also made in brass as their current I-32 is. The three locating pins had a stress breakage issue, but remove the pan and cut them up and make them into what you need just like the Womp and FCRs.  The (K) Super Womp was new in the 1980(?) era and the Flexi Womp (D) came out in the 1990s along with the I-32. Steve at Parma should have exact info.

Wiggle Womp sounds like a more fitting name than Super Womp.

 

1980s - Parma, Super Womp,

1990s - Parma, Flexi Womp.

 

Thanks, chaps.

:)

Steve, The top one is called a Parma "Flexi-Hinge" it was the predecessor to the "Flexi-Womp" and they both used part # 576. Timeframe - 1990-91

Regarding the first chassis, for the historians.

Parma Mighty & Super Womp, initially.

From the 1986 catalog.

I can see the pics OK.

 

The issue is Photobucket wanting money to host 3rd party images.

 

Naturally one of our many friends out there provides a fix.

 

The fix for Chrome is to add an extension, I don't know about other browsers.

 

Go to settings-more tools-extensions-get more extensions-"photobucket hotlink fix".

 

I guess if this continues to be an irritant I'll look for another pic host.
