 I discovered these cars almost 20 years ago when I was working for a model builder. Ever since then I wanted to build a 1/24 or 1/25 scale replica D-type short nose race car.

There was a slotcar available in that scale but it is not proportioned well at all. So I found a Revell  of Germany XK SS and I decided to convert it to race form.

So last night I decided to try and detail up one of the wheels make it a little more accurate. My okan was to cast it in resin. So I threw it in the purple pond last night. Small issue, or should I say large? I will let the pictures speak them selves, but has anyone else had this happen?

I don’t want an Donk race car!
