some slots ive restored or built
Posted 29 March 2006 - 08:13 PM
restored the past couple years! all these are 1/32 scale and im basically a
static builder so i tend to do a pretty detailed job of it. in the case of slots
though, its build them to look good, then photograph them. *then* put
them on the track and after that they are race cars!
anyway, feedback always appreciated:
first here is a lister resin (fiberglass actually) body i tarted up and mounted
on a vintage cox mag chassis. those funky side pipes have since been
replaced, though it still needs a windscreen:
heres a bottom shot showing chassis and upgraded motor:
heres a nissan skyline i adapted to a ninco chassis:
heres a cool mgtd roadster that i raced out and mounted on a monogram
formula one chassis:
and a bottom shot showing chassis with body off:
finally heres a lotus elite (lotus 14) clear plastic body on scratchbuild
and a shot with body off:
hope this didnt take up too much space.
ive found i really enjoy the quick build of a slot car and yet being able to
detail it enough to have an effect!

Makes me wish I didn't sell some of my old ones.

see my post elsewhere of a typo 61 birdcage body that i rescued from the dumpster and restored. at the time i didnt know the manufacturer but then one appeared on ebay MOC. i bid on it but got outbid...dont recall seeing one since.
russkit did one in their superleggera (sp?) series but its pretty basic without any tubular superstructure.
