This model has been built using an RSSlotracing resin body shell with a few of my own detailing additions. Chassis is also by RSSlotracing, motor is slimline BWA and gear/pinion are Slot.it.

The model is not based upon any particular racing AC Ace, but is intended to represent how one may have appeared during the 1950s period.

Very neat finishing. Can I see some pics of the chassis?

It's been a while Dave but well worth the wait to see this masterpiece.

That is such a great build. I have to say the detailed driver makes it. Is it the livery of a real car? I am always curious of a build's history.

Excellent build! I'm very familiar with the 1:1 from the old days. I have 2 AC shells in the "next" pile. This may be just the inspiration I need to go from "thinking about it" to metal bashing.

I was about to embarrass myself and ask why, with all that detailing, you had missed the doorhandles!!!! I thought I had better check the images

However, I do wonder how the doors get to be opened if the tonneau cover is fixed down or the hood up with the windows closed. Must have made life a little awkward. I assume it was one of those lovely bits of wire that you pulled like on the early Mini?

Nice to show my ignorance occasionally.....(well, not TOO occasionally)

Thanks for all the kind messages. The body is painted using Halfords 'Vauxhall Reed Green'. Halfords 'Ford Highland Green' is also a very similar shade, should Reed Green not be available.

No windows - side curtains, probably with a hinged flap at the bottom and yes, it was a bit of plastic covered wire
