    Hi guys.  Bill, as this is a slush mould I have no plans to do any more, sorry.  Aurf, you should give casting a try, I'm lazy and my silicon moulds are all one piece but works for me!!  Also back casting into an old slot car body is easy, just this body had had fibreglass in it before so it wasn't kind to me.  Give it a try ☺

    Lola GT Mk VI (Mecom version)
    Hi Guys,
    I don't usually post to the workbench but thought I might share my latest project.  I have always liked the Lola Mk VI but think the Mecom version (the Mk VI on steriods) looks great so when I was given an old slot car body I did what any keen modeller would do and decided to backcast it in resin.  I then took a resin of the glass areas and vacformed them.  Next it was into the parts box for various resin pieces to start the build.
    As this could take me a LONG time I won't post again until complete.
    Tks for looking

    Hi Brian, so sorry to hear about Ed.  We pm'd a lot over my Chaparral builds and I wondered why there was no comment on my 2H!!  Now I know.
    Kind regards

    Tks guys.  Ricky, they are 1/24.  Curt, you are correct, a mate pulled a couple for me from his unbuilt Aardvark kit.

    Maserati Birdcage Tipo 61 (Chassis # 2467)
    I love Maserati's and when I was able to pick up 2 body/chassis pans and 2 sets of resin tyres I could not refuse!!  I had to make the windscreen mould and vacform them but everything else required (Herb Deeks photo etched wires, styrene rod for chassis, seats, steering wheels etc where in the parts boxes).  I decided to model chassis number 2467, originally sold to Frank Harrison (driven by Carrol Shelby), and subsequently crashed at the Bahamas Speed Week,.  It was then sold less engine to Don Skogmo who fitted a Hilborn injected 4.7L Ford motor and had considerable success in regional races.  This is my interpretation of 2467, I know neither is exact!!

    Richard, only a box mounted under the body housing a resin intake and Weber's from the Corvette Grand Sport. Tks for your comments.

    Tks all for the kind words. 
    Alan, The rear engined Scarab first raced in Sept '62 and last raced in Nov '65. It was powered by the BPO alloy V8 (Oldsmobile in this case) and ran quad 48mm DCO sidedraft webers.  The decals are courtesy of a mate of mine and the wheels and tyres are from my parts box.  They are both resin, I'm pretty sure the wheels are minilites, not exactly correct but look OK and the tyres are as you commented Indy Firestones.  Once again they look OK, even if not strictly correct.

    Monogram Scarab (late iteration)
    I don't seem to be able to build a quick 'box stock' kit any more!!  This was going to be it but I preferred the version as raced at Bridgehampton in Sept '64 so this is my take on it.
    Many tks to my mate Phil for once again supplying the decals I needed to make it look the part.  Now back to my slush cast Maserati Birdcage.  Tks for looking.

    Tks for sharing Matt, neat build of an unusual kit.  Some decent tyres from the parts box would help it immensely
