    I've been wondering the same thing. Like the blu pic, looks good. (FYI: Blu spelled without E intentionally, if you get it, you'll get it.)
    50 characters? Fail.

    Its not on Parmas website that I can see. Was it a licensing issue like JConcepts had with their Gladiator body? I know they finally got the rights to it and re-released it as the Raptor, but their's is a bit smaller, more for MT conversions from what I can tell.

    That shell is sweet, would probably be interested in one if they do come available.

    When you buy this body, do those raptor decals come with it ??? It looks like the F150 body with the J concepts stickers.\\

    either way... totally awesome looking

    It comes with both Raptor decals and J Concept decals...along with the miscellaneous F150 decals. I bought my body at my local rc raceway.

    Those are two different bodies altogether. Look at the body lines. Still not sure where the ones in the first pics come from.

    The first one was produced by Parma & given away as a "freebie" to anyone that test drove / bought an actual 1:1 New Ford F150 at a Ford dealership in the states! I'm not sure weather there are licencing issues with this for Parma now, but Jconcepts do the MT version pictured above & Pro-line have recently released a Ford F150 bodyshell as well.

    I think the Parma Short Course version is the best looking, but where is it? If anybody has one of these please post some pics & tell us where you aquired it from! Many thanks!!!

    Jconcepts Raptor SCT Body

    Looks like Jconcepts will be releasing a SCT version of the Raptor body. Saw this pop up on the Tower site today but no pics.

    Can't wait to see more info on this body, it's not even on the JConcepts site yet. If this looks anything like the Parma Raptor SCT body, I'm buying one.
