    After several requests I've designed this chassis so we can all engine competitive racing with these lovely bodies. I have been busy taking photos of my conversion and will get the how-to posted in the next few days. A link to the product is here...

    Hi folks, Although I've carved a couple of balsa bodies and sprayed them I've never taken a block of board and carved a mould for resin casting. These days in some of the proxies of your not carving your own bodies you can't get a good concourse result so I thought it was time to have a go...

    Tyrrell P34 Policar gearbox conversion for Scalextric 1976 model How to: So as ever you will need a donor car. Currently I think Scalextric have only released the car as a twin set so you have a choice of either car or both! This conversion is reversible for the Scalextric P34. 1...

    Yesterday I began to think about building a late '60's F1 from the so called 3L period. The only shell I had that would be appropriate was a Dave Jones Lotus 25, bought from him back in 2011 at Early Birds. I have never really studied this period of cars so it took me a little research to...

    For the Hawthorne Park Policar GP in November i've decided to convert a March by removing the side pods and front wings and add the small spoiler as Mario ran in this race. In order to differentiate from the to works cars STP had Mario's car painted in day glo red as per their Indy cars of the...

    This conversion is one of the simpler ones. SRC have made a nice model so rather than replace all the rear end detail I have opted to keep it. This does mean that the large cylinder covering the original crowngear remains present but overall I think this is a reasonable compromise. You will...

    This is a how-to for converting a Scalextric Brabham BT26 into a Policar racer. The Scalextric model I have has a few minor defects that the other Scalextric cars don't have. I'm not sure if this was a batch problem or is a defect of the whole model design. I found that the back of the body is...

    This is a how-to for converting a Scalextric Mclaren M7C into a Policar racer. I have chosen to convert the Yellow Surtees car: But these other liveries are all convertible: This makes a really nice, smooth and quick handling car. So this is how I did it and should form a clear guide...

    This is a how-to for converting a Scalextric Lotus 49 into a Policar racer. Background The Scalextric Lotus 49 has been around for about a decade now and although I've designed conversions for most other F1 cars on the market (Scalextric, Fly/Slotwings and SRC) I overlooked the possibility of...

    As the Policar GP nears I started to look for a nice car for my son to enter in the scrathbuild and compatible chassis race on the Saturday. Given that there are still so many March 761/771 models being released I thought i'd get him one of the No.10 Brazilian GP 1976 driven by Lella Lombardi...

    Hello everyone, not posted a new build for a while. I've decided to have another go at 4wd with the three ball diffs like I did in my Cosworth. This time in a much earlier car with rather narrower tyres. Its going to enter in John Warren's international thirties proxy so it'll be up against some...

    So to make a nice presentation of the Policars during the race weekend at UKSF I thought it would be nice to make a 1970's starting grid scene together with pit lane and pit. It was my Birthday this weekend so I got to do whatever I wanted so my son and I set to work...... We had fun and...

    A few photos showing the use of one of my 3D printed chassis with a Policar gearbox inserted in a narrow 1960's body (a Lotus 21 as it happens). Cheers Andi
