Hello All,

Now i will show you some impressions from my last -project.
Both Alfa Romeo cars run at Le Mans in `64 and´65 prepared by the italian tuner -Auto Delta-.
No one of them reached the finish line.
Based on a -Proto-slot-kit- i realised the TZ 1; the TZ 2 is a conversion of a -Fly-slot model.
Some interventions must be done at both bodies to get the Le Mans versions.
In paricular and for example, the TZ 1 body needs a windshield on the bonnet; the headlamp shapes of the TZ 2 should be changed.
The chassis of the TZ 1 is done by me however TZ 2 chassis could be used without any modification.
Lighting system as usual by -Overdrive-.













I hope you like the TZ cars.

Regards

claus

Hi Bigblock,

Thanks for looking.
For the TZ 1 i used the - classic 15´´ alu wheels - made by Penelope Pitlane.
I did not use the resine moulded inserts added the kit. They were not precise enough.
Therefore i adepted a set from a -MRRC-; some small modifications would be necessary.

VBR. claus

Hi, good evening

Thanks all again for compliments !

@ cabb 77: I always try to built into my models a lighting systems kits.
( permanent and constant function of front and rear lighting positions when the car is runnning on the track)
I bought these sets from the german producer - Overdrive -. ( www. slotservice.com )
For front/headlights i use white warm or yellow colored leds (diameter 3mm)
-Overdrive- offers a wide range such led components.
For rear lighting i normally use small - sim/led - components ( 3.0/ 2.5./2.0 mm w/h/d ) which will be fixed onto a
base constrution. A pair of them ( left /right side) is positioned on the chassis in rear position.
( You can see these tiny rectangular shaped parts on my first picture showing the chassis from backside position.)

VBR, claus

Having attended both the '64 and '65 LeMans the Alfa TZs always stuck in my mind as the ultimate car I would like to own. Maybe my new VW Scirocco is in that spirit but of course it is a bit more reliable! GeraldL ( I think the green one failed in front of us at Indianapolis)
