Re: JWA Mirage M1 Body shell

That's probably not a well enough known (successful) car. That anybody ever made a replica of. You'd probably have to make your own.

Mike,
I was afraid of that. For me to make a mold and pull a part takes some time. It will be easier for me to make all alum body.

Thanks
Joey

I think he was referring to the Mirage Can Am cars. Not GT40 cars (but I could be wrong) that"s what I was talking about anyway LOL

Re: JWA Mirage M1 Body shell

While at the 2017 Sebring race last March a JWA Mirage M2 was there and I have to say all the Mirage cars are good looking.

Would love to see a copy made of a M1 car.

Re: JWA Mirage M1 Body shell

In truth I was not aware of these "mirage" model cars. Those are really some lookers & I think they are a more "developed" looking body. I'd like to see one up close & personal too LOL

Re: JWA Mirage M1 Body shell

Those last two posts show there is a difference in the Mirage cars as well. I really like the second one M2?
