  1. Sorry guy's but I'm bored.  These have been posted individually before but I thought I would offer a few pics of them together.

    CSX2323 is a Revell slot car body with a stretched AMT chassis and Monogram 289;

    CSX2196 is a modified Monogram 427 body with AMT rear guards & nose, stretched AMT chassis using the Monogram big block; and

    CSX3002 is all Monogram but with AMT nose.

    All painted in auto acrylic and clear coated.  Viking Blue and Guardsman Blue respectively.

    Tks for looking

    A question to those who built the Gunze Sangyo Daytona. When you assembled the chassis, how did you attach the different components? Epoxy, solder, super glue?

    Permanent epoxy on the chassis, methyl ethyl ketone on the body and opaque craft glue for all the glass and small plastic parts on the body.  MEK will strip paint if you are too liberal with it.

  3. Firstly I'd like to thank my old mate Phil for the 3D filament print and the urethane tyres and our friend Vlad for the file, now I'm sweating on the 300S Vlad!!

    This is my take on Louis Rosier's Monza, as raced in the 1955 Dakar GP were he finished 2nd.  He was fatally injured in this car at Montlhery on the 7th October 1956.

    Seats, transmission tunnel, wheel rims and other small bits and pieces are from my resin bits box.  Photeched bonnet straps are Profil 24 and the bonnet and boot fasteners are home made from fuse wire!!  Model was finished in a home mix of auto acrylic blue and clear coated.  Decals from my left over stash.

  4. This is my take on Maserati chassis no. 151.002 but assigned 151/003 for 1964 and I have modelled it based on that years Le Mans entry.  It was not a great race for the Maser, pitted on the first lap and lost 2 minutes.  It did fight back getting up to third and being the first car to exceed 300kmh during the race, before retiring with a short circuit that could not be traced. It's actually not quite finished as I am waiting on some decals from my mate Phil who printed the body for me, can't hassle him too much!! Considering what I started with I am happy with the outcome and it looks good in the display cabinet with my other front engined racers.   Sprayed in auto acrylic, clear coated and polished.  

    Now it's time to get serious on my Ferrari 750 Monza.

    Tks for looking.
