Very very cool. I too am curious as to who made the body and if it is a slotcar.

Well Thanks guys!

 

  I have been wanting to do this car for years. Yes it is a slot car, I made the mold then I vacuum formed the body in 0.040 styrene. I made the decals on my computer. Also designed the chassis and wheels and everything you see there. And just to let you know that I'm a slot car manufacture ;)

 

Here is a picture of the body after pulled.

I got a resin body off ebay.  It was kind of thick, but workable.  I used a Winged Express chassis under mine.  Aaron Dupont
