I dont race 1/24 but the cars do look nice, congrats! Having more space in the chasis for the mechanics, I suppose it has more Options to play with stuff like diferential, suspension(camber /caster), etc., although I dont know for sure if it will have some real use in slot.

Cheers

Hi GDSLOT, I LIKE THE 1/24S because as I get older the bigger scale is a little better to work on,not so fiddly . I still have a heap of 1/32s I'm working on too.
Cheers,
John

Wow, very nice results. What process do you use to get such a smooth finish?

If he printed it in ABS, he can use acetone vapor smoothing. If you have the skill, you can make most of layer lines disappear while keeping the other details.

Thanks guys, GRUNZ, I useTHE SAND FILL ,SAND,FILL method!in the right light you can see the print lines I just do as much of that till I'm happy with it, I don't build shelf queens and you can't see the lines at 90mph . MrFlippant I'm using PLA a good all-rounder I haven't had a go at vapour smothing I will one day, David I found the chassis on thingevers the multi peace one is called evo3 and the other is a BRM small car chassis I had to do a lot of cutting and shunting with both the evo3 was set up for long can and was too wide,flexycar size, running 3mm axles and BRM Trans am wheels I've got plafit fronts at moment waiting on tires for BRM front rims . Scaleauto spur gear and short can Plafit motor, the Lola much the same except running scaleauto sponge wheels.

The filling and sanding part kills it for me...I have 4 3dp bodies sitting there waiting for me to take the sanding paper to them...I hate it!
From the pics your bodies look really good.

Wow! Where do you get the files from?
1/24 scale racing is alive and well here in Germany and nearly all are scratchbuilds...
