I've just been thinking about some of these newly released slot cars and they all seem to look a bit, well 'new' so i was thinking that they should maybe release some cars that look like they've been driven into a hedge and generally a bit battered and bruised at some point in there lives, because when you think about it the real cars rearley cross the finnish line in one piece (or at all in some cases) so if any one has any opinions on this topic or any pictures of cars that could 'make the grade' that would be brilliant

Judicious use of a heat gun/hair dryer will get the damage you want.

Errr...like folks have got so much cash that they'd buy junked up cars?

Just buy secondhand on Ebay and bung them in the oven for 5 minutes?

Hi there SSD..

Here is a 50s Porsche, that I built with "crash damage" for a recent Le-Mans event.

I unfortunately "melted" part of the body, while making the brass chassis. So with only a day to go before the event, and not having another body, I decided to make the car look as if it had suffered some accident damage during the race... As you can see the team boss was not to happy


All the best.. Martin De'Ath.

QUOTE (agrojim @ 8 Nov 2010, 12:41) <{POST_SNAPBACK}>Hotwheels cars respond well with a hammer and a file for that trackside crash look. At $2 a car it's a lot cheaper than trashing a slot car.


Cheers,
Jim
Good idea for scenery, metal car and a hammer, I'll get my hammer out some time soon

Here`s a better image of it Embs, Dan has a vivid imagination as you can see, just search pics on the forum of Dead Mans Valley stage, we used it in last weekends Slot Rally GB final and although its a complicated stage, its an old favourite.
Cheers - Phil

That's the photo I've seen of it before. Looks like a tar pit. In 1000 years time archeologists will be digging up Scoobyman and debating over whether or not it was a ritual sacrifice.

Yes, now I remember, The beamer from the Mexican airfield track, nice car, nice track. Green car with the tow truck looks good as well, nice work sig, The king of junk!
Scoobie in the water, skid marks make it ever more realistic.
Well done.
