In the early days of slot racing die cast cars were often used by scratch builders mainly by racers using wren /srm 1/43 1/52 scale sets of the day ,with the upsurge in the 1/32 diecast market I thought i would be able to make some cheap and intresting models.
The car in the picture is an American taxi cab and was built very easily by grafting a scaley mondeo chassis into the original floor pan,I had to cast some silicons to replace the rear tyres before it would run well but it now circulates quite hapily ,although some what slower than a plastic car.

You are a non-stop builder, Grah!
I really like the idea of heavy metal cars that behave much more like the real thing, with good old-fashioned, gravity powered weight being the key. The bodies are bound to take a lot more stick and a decent smash can result in bent metal and peeling paint, much more reminiscent of reality too.
