some slots ive restored or built

9 posts in this topic

Posted · Report post

hi im new here and i thought i would share some slot cars ive built and/or

restored the past couple years! all these are 1/32 scale and im basically a

static builder so i tend to do a pretty detailed job of it. in the case of slots

though, its build them to look good, then photograph them. *then* put

them on the track and after that they are race cars!

anyway, feedback always appreciated:

first here is a lister resin (fiberglass actually) body i tarted up and mounted

on a vintage cox mag chassis. those funky side pipes have since been

replaced, though it still needs a windscreen:

heres a bottom shot showing chassis and upgraded motor:

heres a nissan skyline i adapted to a ninco chassis:

heres a cool mgtd roadster that i raced out and mounted on a monogram

formula one chassis:

and a bottom shot showing chassis with body off:

finally heres a lotus elite (lotus 14) clear plastic body on scratchbuild

frame:

and a shot with body off:

hope this didnt take up too much space.

ive found i really enjoy the quick build of a slot car and yet being able to

detail it enough to have an effect!

Those are so good looking it makes me want to go back to the 60s when we lived at the slot car track. I can smell the compounds we put on our tires too. Those really were the good old days. Thank you for showing your cars. 8) :D

If they are "in-scale" then they are definitely models!

>Maserati 161 (Birdcage) bodies around

see my post elsewhere of a typo 61 birdcage body that i rescued from the dumpster and restored. at the time i didnt know the manufacturer but then one appeared on ebay MOC. i bid on it but got outbid...dont recall seeing one since.

russkit did one in their superleggera (sp?) series but its pretty basic without any tubular superstructure.
