Motor City Resin sells a '67 Fury 1 wagon. Their newer castings have an incredible shiny surface. I think that they polish the molds.

I wonder if AFX stretched the chassis out to the correct 116" wheelbase?

Looks like a midsize to me (Belvedere).

I just checked the Motor City website; they offer a '68 Fury 1 wagon transkit.

Well guys. I was checking around. Found out that Steve Kohler over at Star Resin has the R&R resin wagon. Yes it is a 1967

Plymouth Belvedere. I'm thinking about getting it from him. Only wants 38 bucks and shipping. I have dealt with him before. Just

going to check on availbility.

THAT SOUNDS LIKE A GOOD DEAL,

I PAID UNDER $20 INCLUDING SHIPPING FROM THE GUY ON EBAY, BUT THAT WAS JUST THE BODY, NO INT TUB

This body is WAY off. Look at the doors and side windows. I won't be buying one. Here's the 1:1.

Just from lookin at the interior bucket you can tell it's an R&R kit. THAT'S for SURE Rays sloppy work. But,if he's the only game in town, your stuck.

I have one of these too - fairly rough. The door handles are located too high on the body in addition to the pillar discrepancies..

Yes, B pillar needs to go back, rear door is too long, and look at the body at the base of the C pillar.

Why don't one of you who are so willing to criticize this, buy one and fix it ? Put your money where your mouth is.

Wow, dude, chill- not everyone has the abilities nor wants to do all kinds of body mods. Many people would like to buy and use something that is more accurate; more true to the real thing, without a LOT of additional work. Otherwise, we would all be buying plastic pellets and injection molding our own whatevers.

This is typical of the hobby- we want a vehicle that cannot be justified to kit up and when a resin copy comes along, it gets ripped to shreds over the inaccuracy.

I see both arguments here- thankful to have something not available in kit form and yet, why bother when the body proportions are noticeably off?

Having never built a resin master or converting an existing body into something else, I can't say what goes into the process but it must take some work or else we would have resin copies of EVERYTHING!

Some resin kits are accurate and high quality, some are not so much...this falls into the latter category. I do wonder why some resin casters even bother if they can't get the body shape and details accurate. This one isn't at the same level as a TKM resin kit though....
