A new project started today in the form of a 904 with one of Frogeye's superb resin bodyshells. I don't envisage getting very far because of the arrival of traditional winter weather, but ne'er mind, I've made a start.
No, Quark, I really don't know the answer. Never been able to make up my mind. I don't usually like shiny things, but possibly make a subconscious effort to like representations of anything from Weissach and Zuffenhausen.
OK - Chrome would be, in my unprofessional opinion silly. Since it isn't a representation of anything existing in the real world. note: a DeLorean (sp?) isn't/wasn't chrome. It was Stainless Steel. A Model Car is by definition a model which means to me a representation of something existing.
Ah but these are slot cars and as we know slot cars don't always represent a real thing or we won't have any fantasy liveries or even a real car or there wouldn't be a lot of thingies. Just think of them as a nice centre piece for the collectors.
A rare Porsche built in 1957 by Henk van Zalinge. Known as the Hirondelle, it was front-engined and made largely from 356 Carrera bits. Extensively raced in the Netherlands into the 1960s by luminaries like Gijs van Lennep, I don't know it it still exists.
