First Look at the Jimmy Flintstone Chopped Resin 1950 Olds Body

14 posts in this topic

Posted · Report post

These are pictures of the Jimmy Flintstone Chopped 1950 Oldsmobile Body. It is a high quality resin piece that came with an average amount of easily removable flash. The body is straight and there are few, if any, defects to deal with.

These comparison pictures show both the JF body and the body from the Revell plastic kit. The plastic kit hood fits well onto the resin body, but the rear fender wheel openings may need some work to fit the plastic kit fender skirts. I attribute that situation to my flash removal techniques.

Enjoy!

That's an interesting job done on the side windows and B pillar.

Guys as a general rule I do not care for chopped tops. Its just not my bag. But for reasons I cannot articulate, I really like this one.

Considering the fact that Jimmy Flintstone has wholesale ties, I bet he sells every one he casts . I have several of his bodies and considering the over all quality and the price , , I certainly couldn't say anything really bad bout him .
