Quatrozero, thanks for this interesting piece on some unusual (for U.K.) models, very well modelled.
I’m curious about one thing you say: “….the drivers eyes decals from KevinOz are so great.” What are these?

Perhaps I should have started a new thread but it all comes under the Indy 500 from 1979
so will just keep this one going for now. Hope the faithful do not mind.

Another 'DNQ' production based conversion. Parnelli VPJ 6 of AJ Foyt who finished second that year.
Do not know anything about resin casting but this well proportioned base is of a resin that is so
nice and easy to work with without being brittle or difficult to sand, sculpt or add to.

Using a SRC McLaren M23 chassis with their inline set up which should match the performance of the
other cars from this race I have modified already.

Just waiting for the Ford Poppy Red rattle can and the scaled radiator mesh for the sidepods.
Front suspension is not entirely correctly proportioned but will risk mounting it without the usual
axle across the front which normally a solid safe way of hanging the front wheel assembly.
Fingers crossed.......
Beautiful result!
No metal front axle, though? That’s brave.
