  1. The SlotForum 'Swap Shop'
    Right: some one-offs, some rarities and some other stuff! A lot of these have been collected as pairs and I'd prefer to sell them as such. All prices include UK post, overseas possible at cost, Sensible offers welcome. SCX Vintage Ferrari 330 P3, painted and declared as John Surtees/Mike Parkes...
  2. 1:1 Cars (prototype)
    As there isn't any sign of life anywhere else - quite the reverse, with the DTM being consigned to history and in all likelihood several other series as well - it might be a good time to check out the NASCAR action. For those who don't subscribe to any suitable broadcasters, one option is to...
  3. 1:32 scale Cars
    I've wanted a Richard Petty car for ages but the price of RTR stuff - the Carrera Torino and Superbird or the Revogram Plymouth - has been beyond silly since the moment that it was released. I picked up a Carrera Superbird a few years ago and got some decals from Patto but never got the...
  4. Scratch building
    I adore the 'Gen 3' NASCARs - particularly the wedge era of the late 1980s - and so collected a bunch of 1/32 snap fix kits to convert into slot cars. The bodies are all done and the running gear is easy - they all drop straight on to the Scalextric Ford Taurus - it's just finding the means to...
  5. 1:32 scale Cars
    Thanks to the lockdown I've got a few builds done that might otherwise never have happened. First was the Earnhardt race truck and second was this one - converting the Scalextric Ford Gran Torino (Starchy & Hutch) to race spec. In 1978, Will Cronkite bought a five-year-old Ford Torino from Bud...
  6. Scratch building
    Not exactly scratch building - I had two Scalextric Pontiacs with broken rear spoilers. Started reshaping them a few years back to make Chevrolet Monte Carlos of the 1999-2002 period (same basic model, just different rear windows, rear lights and front bumper/grille). Previously I'd done...
  7. 1:32 scale Cars
    My builds often take longer than planned but this one takes the biscuit... About seven or eight years ago I decided to build the NASCAR oval that I'd been planning forever. I picked up some bits and pieces and even got the rudiments of a digital setup. For set dressing I chanced upon a Revell...
  8. 1:32 scale Cars
    The old black window Tupperware NASCARs are hardly at the top of anyone's wish list but when I picked up two for £7 I realised that actually they're a pretty good likeness for the real thing. The downside is that they were fitted to a non-NASCAR chassis and as a result the body shape was...
  9. 1:32 scale Cars
    About 15 years ago two things happened at once: I got back into slot car racing and developed a passion for NASCAR. Hence my forum handle and many of the cars in my collection. The slot racing world has had to do without much NASCAR action for the last 10 years or so, when the unloved (or...
  10. Wanted
    Hi all, As per the above, if anyone's got a used but complete Pontiac I'd be keen to hear from you. Boxes not necessary, livery unimportant. Runners preferred. They're about the only game in town to make pre-2003 Chevies! Come to that, if there are any other Scalextric NASCARs going please...
