One year later... the master modeler (and pretty good picture taker) comes through.

That looks absolutely stellar. The paint and detailing do full justice to that amazing chassis build, and I love the driver figure as well.

 

My only niggle is that given the awesome work that's gone on to make everything as prototypical as possible in the paint and detailing, why make the stance so aggressive, and inaccurate? Is it to keep the CG lower for racing?

 

bestest,

M.

That's one of the best collaborations I've seen; from most angles, it's hard to believe it's a slot car. Chrome the chassis, and it's a museum piece.

 

Drive carefully!

I built a few brass-chassis slot-cars many years ago, but nothing even remotely approaching this. Absolutely beautiful work...man...really impressive stuff. Wow.
