I just had to replicate this spin off of the original Manta Ray, its part of slot car history.

 

I have no history on how or who created this version so I will call it Manta Stray  "Classic V2" so it will have a name.

 

The mold was recreated from a couple of photos and digital measuring.

 

If an original ever becomes available I will make a mold, until then this will have to do.

 

Will pull some test bodies soon.

These 2 body photos I forgot when then came from.

Gene, do you think you could help Red Fox on their new Dodge Charger mold? It looks like it has some cracks that need filled!
