I collect mini from the 1960's to the 1990's and if anyone had any photo's I would love to see them, especially if they are rare or are from a foreign country

QUOTE (Jam1234 @ 31 Mar 2012, 18:25) <{POST_SNAPBACK}>How did you lower it

simples...thanks to sf! set the desired front axle height with a brass tube glued in pleace then remove the approriate amount of plastic from the guide mounting point to drop the front wheels to track height , hey presto , robert is then your mothers low mini!!

standard chassis...though not wheels!

modified chassis...note lower profile where guide blade mounts.

Not rare - but a version I did many years ago with lights. It needs updating with some proper heads and a bit more detail.

It`s the Will Sparrow giant killing Clubman.

EUE897K. 1972. Clubman body, red. 1275cc. Last rally Mini Will built, used on 1972 Welsh Rally (6th O/A after time off the road in Clocaenog).

Cheers - Phil

I love it, did you make the decals yourself also do you have a picture of it with it's lights on
The Thor Hammer was the old Letraset type rub down lettering with clear laquer. Castrol stripes were painted free hand.

I don`t have a pic with lights on, I`ll see if I can find my old Scaley Permalight track thingy and post one next week
