Identify these resin bodies

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

I have three resin bodies I would like to identify.

The woody has a 32 shaped cowl. Want to say poorly cast, but I actually think it is just poorly mastered, so the casting was never going to be great.

The phaeton style body has the three pieces, must be model A. Who made it and what kit was it designed to be used with?

The last body i don't know, assuming it is a 27 T by the markings. The interior tub is marked TRR 02, and the body is marked TRR 2002.

The bag of parts has a roof, windshield frame, and a sun visor in it. Will guess this might fit the AMT 1925 model T 3-n-1 kit. But I'm not sure. What does it fit , who made it?

Can't ID the maker, but I gotta say that's a very accurate-looking '27 roadster - they got that rear bodyside curve right, unlike all the others I've seen.

Hard to tell from the angle, but the woody kinda looks like the one offered by Jimmy Flintstone. If that it the case there should be a floorboard piece as well. Maybe some more pics would help identifying it.

Unfortunately no floorboard piece came to me with this one, but I got them second hand so who knows. 

I did find the body that the roof/visor parts go to. Will get a photo of it up a bit later.

The 27 ford is from Tim's Resin Rods I think he sells on E-bay under another name

Thank you. That allows the TRR markings to make sense. I have never heard of them though, will have to check out what else he might have.

If the woody body is indeed the Jimmy Flintstone 32-34 Woody, I believe it's pretty accurate. The cowl is based off the AMT 32-34 pickup cab, which is generally regarded as pretty accurate. While it may look different from the R/M 32 Ford passenger car series, I believe it's still relatively accurate compared to pictures of the 1:1

Did some more searching and found pictures that match my pictured roof perfectly. I guess I never put up a pic of the body it goes too. But it is a Flintstone NB243 1926 Ford Model T.

Craig, I wish the Woody body that I have was half as nice as the one you pictured, Mine is a pretty rough casting. Actually not sure it is even worth building. Maybe I just need to spend some time cleaning it up to really see what I am working with. What it looks like now just makes me want to put it back in the box.
