This is a rumor I picked up from another board. The next release of the Ohio George Mr Gasket will have a , yes, wait for it, "CLEAR" body.

Cool. maybe do it in a transparent blue color would be different.

I have one of the clear red colored Polar lights cars. One of my favorites

They couldn't pull it off for the 16th Petty Charger I doubt they'll be able to do it for the gasser. :(

The 69 Malco Mustang was done with the clear body. I think they should be able to do it in 1/25. Or they can get Tamiya to do it for them!

Scale may be the factor most responsible for that failure.

The smaller scale may make it more likely to work.

Yeah, man but ejector marks will be murder to get rid of. Sounds like more work than its worth.

i think the kit your talking about is the 1969 ohio george mr gasket mustang gasser that was originally issued in clear plastic.a couple problems as far as accuracy i had with the original kit was the one piece body (no tilt front end),no rear fender flares,the front grille/spoiler needs modification. the chassis on the original kit was identical to the 1967 malco gasser mustang kit althouh the real mr gasket car had a somewhat different front suspension.the first mr gasket kit had blown 429 that george had in the car during a winter show circuit but i dont know if it was ever raced that way.it was first raced with a blown 427 sohc then later with a twin turbo 429.it will be good to see the reissue but i would not bet on any improvements to the original kit.

Is the reissue the '69 car or the flip-front '67? On Tower Hobbies, it says that the kit is the '67...the '69 was the one that originally had a clear body.

Anybody have any solid info on if/when the Malco Gasser Mustang will be released? I've heard rumor of this for quite a while now but nothing solid!

I agree, Greg! That would be an awesome kit for a clear body.

Here's another what-if suggestion: Kit the Dukes of Hazzard Charger in ALL clear parts ... not just the body. That way we wouldn't have to see it if someone built it! :lol::lol: :lol:

Krylon "Thick Glaze" works much better, as it takes less coats for the clear to work, I hope to use it on my Petty Charger, after all,bigger scale= thicker clear. :P:P

I know, I wish I had that problem. Instead I have to bribe them with hard earned money to come home with me. :o
