So I've got this Alpine A110, by BUM-slot... surprised to see actually it is by SRT


main problem is the handling, the car rolls before it even begins to slide, so I googled up some pics of a group-4 version... but those wheel arches...

anyway, out came the body putty
and here are the first steps...

roughly sanded into shape, next will be the primer

Then I had to change the wheels, luckily I had a set of Ninco DTM Alfa 155 rims and axles around, slapped some ninco tyres on, cut the axles to fit and hey presto, it all fits and runs smoothly


Also upgraded the interior a bit, but pics of that will follow later....

Nice work! That SRT model's a hopeless slot car, but the Alpine itself is very pretty. Interesting to see how yours goes- I might have to dig out my one and give it a makeover in similar style!

Keep us posted Jan

Thanks!

is a shot of the interior, seen from the back

and here

is a top view of the widened body

is the body mounted on the chassis, note the wheels (6 spokes as per original, but too large I think)

will add more as the saga continues

Very nice work Jan.

I like the co-drivers pace notes!, you can almost read when the next corner is coming up.

Keep us posted on progress.

Regards

Alan
