Scott, you are having a laugh.
Just buy one, I know I will as soon as i find out where to get one. I built one of these as a static kit once (when I was a wee lad). Wonder if its still in the loft somewhere?!?!?!?!?
Scott, There is a flaw to your logic. QUOTE I mean, sooner or later a man has enough toy cars, right.
Never. Ask my girlfriend. She hasn't said it yet, but I think she thinks I'm insane. Maybe not - I am having substantial progress in converting her to a slot car girl - she came over yesterday and wanted to race! (New market segment?)
That paint looks fantastic. I don't have fond memories of the car either, but hey it's a new casting of a Le Mans type car that looks terrific. I'm gonna buy at least one.
Here's a question for you - Is it wrong to own several examples of the exact same model? At one point I had 8 of the Fly #6 Sunoco Lolas because I was just so overwhelmed by the cars beauty. That and the guy I bought them from on eBay was selling them in 6 car lots at a good price. I've since sold most of them off and so now I'm down to 3 (one runner and one shelf queen and I'll part with the 3rd soon to finance some new purchases. The ones I sold off did fetch a nice premium.
I did see the car in person at the hobby trade show last month.
Yes it does look great and it is a side-winder.
It does run very well (Harry Wise of Home Racin World snuck a few laps with a prototype when nobody was looking) but I don't think it will be able to keep up with a Slot-It (I don't think Mongram intended it to keep up with one either).
I saw the real car race once but I didn't really want one of the slot models until I saw it!
Nobody had any specific dates for it's arrival.
I really like the Monogram cars. It is nice to see companies like SLot-It and Monogram making scale model slot cars.
Hi All- I don't know if this will work, but....
There was a great article about Adrian Newey in MotorSport a few years ago. He designed the March, and there's a good story about it on this page;
Starts at the bottom of the left hand column. I hope it doesn't strain your eyes. Or take up too much space. Still struggling with sizing these pictures.
December 2000 if you want to check out the whole thing.
Always one of my favorite group C/IMSA cars. I had a brass chassied version decked out in Red lobster colours that we raced in a 24hr series back in the 80's, it wasn't the easiest paint jobs to do, especially inside out.
The Red Lobster is definitely the best paint job that this car ran in. Other liveries are the CRC car of Al Holbert, Michelob/Executone and of course the Nissan engined cars that ran at Le Mans.
Now what we need next is a group 44 Jag XJR5!
