The boom in slot cars especially classic cars is making life difficult for us poor scratch builders and kitbashers.

The joy of building and owning something a bit different gets harder by the month as no sooner has the paint dried on your latest "masterpiece" than the announcement comes of a commercially available version of the very same slot car.

I'm getting some Cox, Revell, Monogram and K&B cars from the 60s up and running again and sometimes for a change I use a static kit body to create an unusual car. So I set about putting together a 1/24 Stirling Moss/Graham Hill Le Mans Ferrari SWB using an Italeri kit body on a Revell chassis - this is one of my favourite classic racing cars and it's looks great in Rob Walker's colours of dark blue with the white stripe.


Kitbashed Italeri/Revell Ferrari

I thought I was safe with this car especially as it's in the less popular 1/24th scale but I didn't count on Carrera - what have they just announced for release but the Stirling Moss Tourist Trophy Ferrari SWB

I know the feeling David, it is even harder to find model kits to convert of you want to work in 1/32 scale. I want to do some street cars from that last 20 years and there is almost nothing out there.

Nice car btw.

I'm pretty sure Carrera have just anouched this car in the same colour sceme in 1:24.

I'll double check on the toy fair photos.

That's why I'm angry, well I've calmed down a bit since this morning.
