I think Phil's picture of the prototype car with the Lotus Seven'ish nose would make an even more appealing model.

Forget about the exhaust pipe JP, there are more important issues to consider.

I'm afraid I still can't make out where the third Cylon would fit in the car, as did we mention it's really tiny, and only a Cylon of Harry Porsche type stature, (following his recent crash diet), would fit in the back.

Regards

Alan

PS Decals are drying.....nearly there.

Oh Dear.....All those of a nervous disposition, please turn away now.

The Xzylon is finished..............



Chassis is straighforward PCB with Slot.it 23K motor and pod. Gears are Slot.it as are axles. Guide is TSRF and wheels are Scalextrix Lotus 7.

Here it is toying with another car I picked up recently from somewhere or other, (did seem to have a lot of sand in it).



By the way did I mention how tiny it is?...........

Regards

Alan

No problem Alan - I've taken the tablets and I'm viewing through safety glasses.

Nice job! Are those home made decals? What did you use? I was thinking of using Crafty clear on my car although I've run into "density" problems with none white shells in the past. Might be OK 'cause of the black roundels though?

Btw, did you photograph the chassis too - I'd like to see that. How does it handle with that 23k motor? You didn't take Fergy's advice on that one I hope

QUOTE (JohnP @ 24 Jul 2004, 11:41)Love that second pic - is that the Luton equivalent of tossing the cabre?

John - It reminds me of the time at school when we pushed the sports teachers Reliant Robin over the playing fields, picked it up and parked it in a hockey goal. I'm much more sensible these days.

Alan - I love your car but I bet it's a handful with that screamer of a motor and those skinny tyres!

Gentlemen....You want more punishment?



This is the basic chassis and how it fits beneath the bodywork, (I use the term loosly). I'm afraid I painted this one which makes it more difficult to see. All PCB with solid front brass Axle. Three mounts to the body used , I think you can just make out the rear two.



This is the top of the chassis. Very easy, and quick to knock up.

John...The decals are mine, produced with Powerpoint and printed on a simple HP Printer/Scanner/Copier onto Craftycomputer White decal paper. I've only just got into printing my own following your good advice.

The motor is a littlr cracker, the best one in Slot.it's excellent range IMHO. Plently of low down grunt, and I can get those little wheels to spin fairly easily. The magnet is in at the moment, and the car seems to run pretty well, roughly on a par with my Ninco healey.

I must say the gear mesh is not as smooth as my other Slot.it set ups, I do hope I haven't got one of those iffy pinions Maurizio was on about in another thread!.

Fergy...The motor is of course temporary, as I'm waiting to fit one of your Demon Strap Motors.
You do have some left don't you?........or are they all fitted to your stable of 60's F1 cars?.

Regards

Alan
