Ran into another problem with the GTO (k078). I put more photos on my Fotki. Still trying to get a new body for it. Nothing so far. If anyone's got a resin LHD MFH 250 GTO body, I could use it. The damage is really bad on the body I have. See for yourself. :crying: :banghead: :shakehead :disappoin :headshake :uhoh:

Why don't you get a Fujimi 250 GTO instead and work from there?

Hey, sorry to be a debbie downer, but you're probably not going to get a spare body from someone. This is a $200+ kit. Whoever buys these is pretty experienced at building them, and won't have a spare body to give away because they wouldn't need one in the first place. Your best bet at this point is to contact MFH.

The damage is not that bad, really, nothing a couple of hours of work hacking spares from Fujimi donor and tube of epoxy putty won't fix. I dead serious.

I hope I can get a new body for it. I emailed MFH 4 days ago, and no response.

Dude, MFH is a very small company that makes resin models. Even if they kept stock of these things (which I not even "highly doubt", I know for sure they don't cause that would be just stupid), they won't give it to you for free (because I bought even small stuff from them before, they are not a charity), and don't expect it to be cheap.

But that doesn't even matter cause they don't have spare parts for kits that were made in a limited run like 5 years ago.

The GTOs were a limited run? NO WAY!

I got mine from Motoi more than a year ago. He had just gotten it in, too!

I would give ANYTHING for a new GTO body!

4 days "ago" by yesterday was saturday....... I don't know if mr. Hiro must spend all the WE at work, I hope not for him....
I think also they wouldn't stock any spare.... it have not sense since they wouldn't need any, if not decals and few PE sheets, things not in thouch with the resin/metal production. Once more if I'm mr. Hiro and I see you pict, and more I follow a bit the forums I wouldn't answer or send you one more. May be he would be saint-Hiro: he may answer and offer a spare to you (do you think he would mess a new kit to send you a body? may be he accidentally have a body left?), do you think he would offer it for less than 70 USD? Add shipping if is not enaf.

My 2 cent: someone said yet: step 1: pack it, relax, do-build knowledge, do experience, un-pack it in a couple years and you would be easily able to fix it in a day, like most of us may do.

Option 2: ask for a friend able to recover the body, anyway pack it or you would be able to re do the dysaster, like you would do in a new body also.... go to step one and play...

Junk posts. You hate them but can't resist not reading them. They are so addictive.

so take a look at what I've just seen browsing Ebay:

MFH's Barchetta online store says that Version B, C, D, F are in stock, so if any of those bodies work, you should send a follow-up email asking about that.

If the website information is obsolete (which can happen), I second petesy's opinion and suggest that you get a Fujimi kit. You can correct its shortcomings, like mediocre engine details, plastic wheels and Avon tires by using MFH kit.parts.

Or, if you don't want to buy a kit just for the body, I can send you a body and other necessary parts from Fujimi's blue/yellow 3445GT kit, and you send me corresponding parts from your MFH kit, including the damaged resin body.

The MFH body is so freakin perfect! I wish that there could be a way to graft pieces of the old body onto the new body, or else I would do it. I guess that this is the end of a great MFH kit.

if it was so perfect, you wouldn't have broken it trying to fix the bits that were wrong.

I will pay ANY price for a new body for an MFH '62 250 GTO (K078).

You are THE BEST TROLL I have ever seen. Seriously. I am awestruck and dumbfounded by your mastery. :eek7:

But as Alex said, if you bring this sh!t up here again, you are finished.

We're done here.
