It`s 1/24th scale and as for the body yes it`s resin, A guy that used to go to my model club here in NZ used to make them for me , but he has sold up his resin works to another guy a few years back and that guy hasn`t done any moulding as yet..
Was made from a 32 Ford Vicky kit , I think it was an old AMT kit ??

That's awesome. it looks like the go-kart from hell. That would be a blast to drive. Do these cars race on a dirt track or pavement?

I love anything scratchbuilt, and this scratchbuilding is well done to boot. Great build mate, looks pretty well spot on so far.

never seen one like that. How much narrower is the rear wheels? Why so drastic, and how does that affect the handling?

Wow, Mark!!

You REALLY did an Outstanding job of reproducing that race car! I've never seen anything like that around here...

It definitely looks like "Rubbin's Racin" down in your neck of the woods!
