I just wanted to say how excited I am to have received the first Lotus 72D model from Maurizio!
This car mark's the 10th release from the range in 7 years since Maurizio began.
Actually I designed the gearbox back in winter 2011 but these things take time to get started...
So I just wanted to...
Slot.it has put online their catalogue: http://catalogue.slot.it/
If you click on the ready-to-run cars you can see most of their models.
First of all, it seems that they have produced 50 models so far.
If you click on the last page (page #8) you will see CA49a. No picture yet but very...
Hesketh 304 Policar gearbox conversion for Fly model
So, as ever you will need a donor car. There are several models available, I am doing the Alan Jones car.
This conversion is non-reversible for the Fly donor body.
Disassemble the Fly car by removing all screws. Set...
Tyrrell P34 Policar gearbox conversion for Scalextric 1976 model
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.
Our club will start a new race Series in about a month's time that features the NSR, Slot.It and Policar models of the Ford and Ferrari sports prototypes that fought each other in 1966-7 (see here). To liven up the grid I decided to enter painted white kits of the NSR Ford GT MkII and MkIV, plus...
I have enormous pleasure in inviting entries for the 3rd running of the Policar Grand Prix UK, to be run at the UK Slot Festival, on 16-17 May 2020.
British Motor Museum
For those interested in real cars the entry fee to the slot car...
Tyrrell P34 build how-to
A. Parts required for this build:
1. Complete kit from Pendle Slot Racing:
This comes with all wheels, tyres, chassis, body parts and drivetrain.
If for any reason you wish to use other rear tyres and wheels for your build I would advise speaking directly with Pendles...
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...
Here are some pics of the first prototypes being assembled: https://www.letratslot.com/policar-des-nouvelles-du-projet-ferrari-312-b2-pour-le-slot/
It looks really promising. I like the different options for the nose and the wing.
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.
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...
Here is a rather rare 1/24th scale Policar 300 SP set made in 1967. I got the set without the cars but I had the correct cars already. The set never came with a transformer. It is a huge box and not in the greatest shape. But it is a important set to have for the museum. I have not seen one so...
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.
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...
