Purchased a body from a gentleman in my area and can't figure out what it is for the life of me. Please help.

Should we blindly guess or would you like to post a picture?

It's a coupe called the Bird of Prey -- it had a cloaking device.

It's one of those clear bodies so clear that you can hardly see it until you get some paint on it.  :laugh2:

 

Tully, welcome to Slotblog! Stick around for awhile & have some fun. :)

It's a Mini Cooper in 1/2,000 scale. You can't see it with the naked eye until painted

 I made a mold of that one, but I can't find the mold, I know it's there but I can't see it.  :laugh2:

Posting a photo for the first time can be a challenge.

A fisherman was catching marlin on 4 lb. test, then he went down to 2 lb. test and caught one. So he actually went down to zero lb. test for the ultimate challenge. But he got a backlash and couldn't see to untangle it, so he gave up.

If you understand complicated computer jargon, use Cheater's instructions, post #1

If not, I recommend post #9, it walks you through it in plain English, step by step.

 

It looks complicated, and it's not at all. Heck, I do it  :crazy:

He can always email his photo to someone here on Slotblog and they can post it for him until he gets the hang of it.

That is strange. How do you post as a guest?

 

I read the name Tully from his post. Now that is gone. Something funny here.

This was my fault. I fumbled-fingered and inadavertently deleted Tully's original account. That's why his first posts now show as being made by a guest.

 

At my request he has re-registrered under the same display name and shoud post to this thread sooner or later.

 

I have asked Tully if he can email a pic of the body to me and, if so, I'll post it here.

Sorry to keep you all waiting, I am quite new to all of this and it doesn't help that I'm using my cell phone currently and was unable to convert the photos to a format which met the file size requirements.

 

In reference to this body I've narrowed it down to something italian by the shape of the license plate but then again I could be entirely wrong but I've done hours of research online and learned of many new cars none of which gave an answer to my questions so any tips or information would be much appreciated.

Good spotting, Jeff.
 
A new one on me, and I do not have one. Any clues who made that body?
 
Has Du-Bro fingerprints to me but could not find it in Steve's lists. I wonder if it has another name?
