    I recently dug my Fly Pedro Rodriguez Gulf Porsche 917 from 1970 Brands Hatch in its plastic box out from deep storage as I wanted to check the colour for the Mirage M2 I was finishing. The 917 is a lovely model and I couldn't resist a few laps of the track with it. As I suspected, it proved to...

    Friends, I am a "good old boy" Yankee that was won over by the high-detail, Euro-styled 1/32 slot cars around 1999 when I became aware of them (my older brother got me involved in 1/32 Parma Womp Womp and 1/24 belt-driven Whisperjets back in 1980 when public tracks began to re-open, and my...

  4. Scratch building
    I'd been browsing the Betta & Classic website and was intrigued by the availability of vacuum-formed shells made of .030 inch white polystyrene instead of the usual clear lexan or similar. I've always enjoyed working with polystyrene and the pictures of the available shells looked promising, so...
  5. Scratch building
    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...
  6. Slot Rally & Raid
    Just seen the first shots of a car some of us have been waiting forever to get hold of - Mikkola's 555 Quattro from the 1985 China Rally. Hooray! It's been in the release list since some time in the mid-cretaceous period. Along with Michèle Mouton's black BP Group 4 car. The pic shows that it's...
  7. Digital
    I leant something very important today (Thanks Twigman). The lapcounter in ARCPro requires that it must *first* detect the (black) slot guide, *then* reads the ID from the IR LED. This means that you can't put the LED ahead of the slot guide, using a SureChange guide (for example). This was bad...

  9. Slot Racing & Tuning
    Hi All here is a small project of mine. I like the BMW M1 and I have read many times the splendid article on Slotracinglemans.com (http://www.slotracinglemans.com/newforum/news.php?action=view&catid=7&aid=146) about building 20 identical cars from scratch. Fly has done a good job in providing...

    Falcon Slot Porsche 908 Turbo Whether or not you are excited about the first offering from Falcon Slot depends on two things: 1) do you love Porsches and 2) do you have good memories of the original range of Fly Classics? If the answer to either of those questions is 'yes' then read on...
