Looks like a good item to me, Matt, but do you think this should be in the eBay forum?

While clicking on the dune buggy ad, I came across this, which I thought was pretty cool.

It could go in the Ebay section, I guess.   Does that make any difference?   The only reason I posted it was that it is the body that we dissected in a previous topic and which finally showed up from an Australian collector and is now on the way to Don, who has the chassis.   Whoever can move topics feel free to move it.   It isn't mine.   I just thought it was of interest to the 1/24 collectors.

I was just suggesting it, Matt. I see your point :)

Hi Matt, 

 

Yep, I saw that this morning... I thought the one on the way to me was a Pactra? Although it looks like the same model of a Meyer Manx...

Maybe the Lancer body is what Pactra used. The body I sent you is loose with  no markings.   Maybe Lancer provided the bodies or even the molds to Pactra for a small fee.
