  1. Scratch building
    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...

  3. Scratch building
    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...

  6. 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...
  7. Scratch building
    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...

  9. 1:32 scale Cars
    I've been working on converting a few of the Scaley 1960's open wheel cars. I foolishly ignored these cars when they were first released on the basis that my focus is 1970's. Then recently I was scheduling some cars and noted that some of these cars actually ran in 1970 or even 1971. So I did...
  10. Tracks & Scenery
    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...
  11. Scratch building
    So I recently bought this book: Although not exhaustive it is a great summary of the teasm over the years with some great photos.... This one in particular stimulated me to dig out a couple of the DNQ shells I have stashed away safely for just such an occasion! I have the JPS and the...
  12. Scratch building
    I thought I would prepare the first painted prototype of this car for this event... 3D printed parts arrived yesterday. A bit ofwork is going to be needed to make this operational!!!! Cheers Andi
