I'm keen to scratchbuild a 1/43rd scale car. Does anyone make good quality vacuum-formed Lexan Group C or IMSA GTP bodies?

Kind regards,

Russell

Thanks for that, Ted. I saw the Jaguar XJR9 on Ranch Design's website, but I was hoping for a bit more variety.

Unfortunately, until more people like Steve at Ranch Design make specialised components, I don't think that 1/43rd scale will progress much beyond being regarded as toys. We need manufacturers such as Slot.it and NSR to get in on the act. In my personal opinion, the design and technology used in the Cox Super Scale 1/40th cars, first produced in 1973, was way ahead of what Carrera, SCX and even Kyosho produce today.

Thanks for the heads up on the proxy. I like the concept but am unlikely to finish a car in time, due to other projects. Perhaps next year.

With kind regards,

Russell
