Great looking job on this one, well done. It reminds when I was a Race and Rally on the RAC Rally in the day, watching these flying through the forests in this condition after they had bounced a tree or two!
Yes we were in Vegas the week before the IndyCar race when Dan crashed. We were (my two boys at the time, 30 years ago) big into BMX, friends of ours lived in a village about 20 miles away. Dan grew up next door to them! He used to race and do show races and tutoring to kids at our local kart track, Daytona Raceway.
I worked on Air Traffic at the Silverstone ciruit and met Justin a number of times when he came in, in the lower formula's and then in F1 with the Jaguar F1 team (previously Stewart F1). A very nice and decent young man. One of the first tributes on TV here in the UK today, was from his sister, the widow of Dan Wheldon! RIP Justin and condolences to his wife and two daughters and the rest of his family.
Well this is a very good looking classic XK120, you've done a superb job, well done! Although I live just 5 miles from Silverstone it's expensive (being a retiree) to get into the really big annual classic racing weekend, so I watch it on the TV. There were quite a few of these flying round and looking superb in various racing colours, mainly British Racing Green.
Yes Shay, unfortunately the now the late Tom Walkinshaw. He later to the above date became a major shareholder in the Holden plant in Australia and continued to support the works Holden V8 Supercar team. His TWR operation in the UK went bang and he moved to OZ. One of his son's now runs the race team in OZ.
I'm looking at having a go at this as prices for the 3D Printers are falling quite well here in the UK. I'd like to print car bodies and spares like racing seats, surfboards, beetle engines in either 1/24 or 1/25 scale. can you tell me if that is possible please? I've cast the seats, and surfboards before in plaster to hope to go up a rung to resin but I have to mix such a volume to get the mix right that it's proving expensive.
