A lil' Porker for a race in Lille

Next weekend, I and a few others are attending a race in Lille, because the rules are a bit unique, (1/24th small cars using a Slot Classic chassis) I had to build a car specifically for the meeting.

A very nice colour scheme and I love the driver's crash helmet design. Did you produce the decals yourself?

That is some transformation.

Good luck in the race!!
that's a a speedster!
Most of the decals are from the spares box, I made the "Lil' Porker" using Excel (I also made a French version "Le P'tit Boudin" but decided to use the English one). The driver was painted by Scudbong Pete many years ago.

Nice, Joel. Is that a brass plate/pan around the plastic chassis?

The chassis shot shows the car has been well tested. I am guessing it runs very well.
Nice on Joel!"!!
Yes, big brass plate, needed to make sure the car stays the right way up (not a very good chassis without).

I was originally going to build a Renault Floride, but the handling was dreadfull (the car was too tall).

I struggled to find wheels and suitable tyres (max 9mm), in the end I used RS wheels with Ninco tyres, I hope they work on the Lille track.

That's quite a transformation, also like the idea of the additional brass plate on the chassis.
Here is another picture of the little Porsche.

I didn't want to show that one, because the symmetry isn't quite right (it's better in real life) I used some flexible masking tape from Tamiya for the first time.


It looks better from the back

Nice one Joel, good to see that the body was put to good use. That driver is amazing

Was it me that told you about the Tamiya flexible tape too? I can't help but think that this car wouldn't have been built if it weren't for me
