Scale I Build

  1. Hi! Was very active during the pandemic. and found time to build my annual Lakester. This 32 roadster (AMT'S) is my latest member of the FLAT EARTH SOCIETY. What if a Cannuck was to challenge the famous So-Cal Speed shop car on the salt? It is a mostly scratchbuilt frame, based on the Phantom Vicky rails, but all the cage, belly pan, suspensions, instruments, tanks, axles, air-ride shocks, Optima battery & all are scratchbuilt. The engine is from Monogram's Turbo Coupe TBird, heavily modified. Scartchbuilt electrical panel, brake & clutch hydrulic cylinders, fire extinguisher, floor pan, etc. The front section is made of Monogram's 36 Mercedes hood top, sheet plastic side panels, Haye's TBird inverted scoop, a pencil eraser "nose cone", some fabrication, and the rear wing is made of a Gilette cartridge blades tray. The belly pan bulge is a plastic spoon, and the clear canopy is from a lightbulb blister pack. The tonneau cover was made with an Avanti roof panel. Fully wired & hosed. Rolling stock & rear quickchange section from MT's Challenger. Custom decals. Tamya's pure white + Italian red lacquer panels. Hours of fun with styrene. Long live the salt! CT
  2. Hi! I build one salt car per year, and here's the sixth member of my Flat Earth Society: SALZ WAGEN. I had a leftover Allison V12, a Hasegawa VW van body, Mpc's 72 Chevy PU custom rollingstock, so, here we go: scratchbuilt chassis, suspensions, wheel houses, roll cage, electric system, etc. The body was sectionned and tilted in the front, with various streamlining mods. I'd like to thank fellow modeler MUNCIE, well know on this forum. Seeing my enthusiasm for the salt, he bought and sent me the SCTA current rule book for the salt. I therefore like to think that this contraption would pass inspection. Thanks Muncie! Gratefull that you allowed me to improve my knowledge of salt cars! Now, on to next year's car... What will it be? Long live the salt! CT
