1/32nd Lindberg 1949 Ford Tudor Coupe Slot Car Conversion

05 October 2012 - 05:50 PM

Hi everyone!

I thought I'd share these progress pictures with you. I have taken Lindberg's 1949 Ford and using Evergreen Styrene sheets, built my own frame for the Monogram Tiger Slot Car Performance Parts.

The 1949 Ford with the body removed. All I need to do to finish the car is to enlarge the hole ahead of the front axel and add the front pick-ups. Once this is done, I can then paint it. It will be orange with black and white racing stripes and numbers.

After many hours (And many pains), I finally got the chassis finished!

It uses the Monogram 9 tooth pinion gear and the 26 tooth crown gear. I broke the outer crown gear spacer trying to force the plastic gear on the knurled axel.

All plastic pieces are Evergreen Styrene and the screws / metal parts are from an old stereo.

The 1949 Ford after all the componients have been added. Now it's time for a paint job! ...coming soon!
