Hard to look past that wreck of a chassis. But the body is not one I have ever seen.

Anybody?

Good call Jairus, I feel a Thingy build coming on. When it arrives I will post some better pics.

I am always surprised by the stuff I have never seen.

I have seen this body before!

 

Maybe it was Dokk who posted it years ago as some part of a collection that they got for Bader's bounty!

 

Looks like a hybrid on the way to today's wing cars.

Good (memory) recall David, that's it for sure.  :)   I will try and do it justice. Just noticed the add on wing-lets which I was thinking I would add to support the warped and missing sides.

Would like to know more about it's origins.

Well the UFO has landed, crash landed I should say. But I will fix the problems. I think its worth saving.

I am always up for a challenge.

Still no positive info on its origin or maker?

Looks like a possible candidate for a back-pour and re-production mold.  Hmmmmmm

Then we can have a contest on what to name it.

I will fix the damage, square up the sides, then pull a mold. 

I would think it already has a name, somebody out there knows it maker. But if we cannot find its original name, a new name will be welcome.

Found the full pic from the LASCM
