Are they 1/24, Carkrazed? The Lotus 23 looks beautiful!
Excellent.
Like BJ, I use lots of Classic shells, but I don't know about any other makes.

The only fibreglass bodyshell I have other than ones made by Classic is this 1/24 Knobbly Lister which I bought in a bit of a state and had to replace missing areas of bodywork and also repair quite a lot of delamination under the surface. I don't know the name of the maker of the shell.

It is currently in my projects pending pile having already missed the deadline for last summers Bordeaux event and it's still not finished.

Here's one I acquired in an Ebay lot several years ago. It's fitted to a modded K&B chassis and I added the modern driver to use it at a "vintage" night we used to have at a friends house. On Ninco track the magnet effect was very noticable, whether by design or not, I don't know!



It's obviously a Ferrari, but either a car I don't know or not a good representation of one!

Both cars are 1/24 we think the yellow car is made by Bill sipple (auto hobbies )
and the green car could be by Bob Braverman both from the early 60s.
See the posts on ( slot car illustrated ).
Mr pea could have cracked the case.
The knobby lister that David Lawson shows is great.
The ferrari MR M shows is great as well.
I think fiberglass cars are the rearest of the rear in slot cars .
They seem to be very hard to find.
Thanks for your input and pics I hate to see this subject go with out some looks at other cars .
I'am new to this board and in the USA . the boys at Radtrax in Las Vegas told me to check out this board.
We had some great racing in Vegas In May.( You know who you are )
With about 7 cars in the works I will be ready for Vegas next Year.
Thanks for your Help carkrazd

There are also all the cars made in fibreglass by John Bacon....... via Mundaring hobbies in Australia - Some really rare cars made, the only down side is that you pay and the cars can take 10- 12 months to then arrive (due to demand - but they always arrive!!!)

here are some of the ones I have done ........ (can anyone tell me if they can be copied once they have been completed? - in other words will I mess up the cars by casting them now - reason for this is - John no longer manufactures several of the cars I already have and would like to do another version ...!!!!)






I have 2 1/24th cars from John that will be interesting to do - a 57 Vanwall F1 and a Ferrari 512 LH.......

hmmmm - may have messed that one up - talking about 60's fibreglass .......


I know that many of John's moulds are from the 60's - but many are not - and most are made today - sorry for the faux-pas......

So you've been racing in Las Vagas with Dr. P.......Must try and get to Radtrax one day.

I've just ordered a Classic shell 1/32nd Lister Jaguar from ABSlotsport here in the UK. This is the site :-ABSlotsport

The Sports/GT shells they have are all 1/32nd I understand, and I've no idea about quality, but they might be worth a try. Can't help with 1/24th I'm afraid.

Regards

Alan
