Peter, I feel pretty compelled to comment on the great looking cars, they all look Fabulous!!
Really top notch builds every one!
I was just flashing back to 6 or 7 years ago when I first switched from 1/32 to 1/43 and the typical cars that I used to see for the proxy races. Coming from 1/32 were proxy entries were works of art, at that time most of the 1/43 Proxy entries did not really have decals, numbers were painted on with dime store brushes, wheels would stick out 1/4" on either side and people would see how many magnuts they could stuff in their cars to try and keep their Artin Chassis on the track! Scale accuracy? What was that?
Look how far we've come!! Most of these cars are every bit the equal to their 1/32 or 1/24 cousins:thumbsup:
The Alfa is on the way, had it not had such a hard birth I might have been able to manage at least one more car, I got a couple aluminum channel chassis cars already down the road I am mostly waiting on the set screw crown gears from ranch and I should be able to show a couple other cars I have been working on, even if they won't make the race!
I envy you being able to drive all those nice cars!
On a positive note, I was looking through my cars the other day and dug out my entries from the previous race, put them on the track and ran them, They ran better then I remembered and just looking at them I was reminded of just how much work went into them.
Kinda impressed myself; so much so that it was almost like looking at something that somebody else built!
I kept thinking to myself "this is really Cool, did I REALLY build this"
Hnag in there Peter and hopefully the cars don't take as long to get back as they took to get there!
