Scale I Build

Found 1 result

  1. How about considering a category in the forums specifically for Bonneville/dry lakes/LSR/beach, etc racers? The venues are hotter than ever (despite how the surface is) and I am considering building a few salt shakers from the apocryphal old days. I realize that the kit offerings are limited, but not barren. And, there are so many types and styles of cars in classes going for records, to say nothing of bikes! Endless possibilities! Easy dioramas, too! The biggest problem I have now is the availability of accurate scale high-speed tires, as are run on the salt -- my phantom twin Cad V-16 car* can use the original wires, since it's a period piece, but now I'm wishing I hadn't discarded all those old Indy and ?? tall, skinny rubber Firestone-type skins from Comet, Mono, and so on! We'd need lots of Halibrands in resin, and more belly tanks to work from, among other things. I'd like to build Tommy Milton's Stutz/Miller, or the Keech Triplex special (three Liberty V-12's!), or one of the Brit record holders; think how much fun it would be if those famous engines were released (3D printed?) for us. M/T's Challenger, the Goldenrod, and Breedlove's car(s) are okay; the Arfons Boys 'Monsters' would be nuttier! What do you think?
