I've just spotted on Ebay that OCA are producing some new resin shells. They include a wonderful little Morgan 4/4, a very pretty Opel GT, and Ferrari 250 and rather oddly a Beach Buggy !.

I've used OCA shells in the past and they have been very good. Interestingly the item description on Ebay says they will fit on the new chassis from Pendle and that you can buy the complete rolling chassis for £17 incl. wheels and tyres.

This is a picture of the Morgan shell :-

My Morgan is on it's way!....

Just spotted that myself today Alan - I've alreaady placed some enquiries about it and the others!

I wonder if it's a recast of the Slot Classic model (now unavailable).

The Beach Buggy and the Opel could also be copies of the Airfix and Revell kits respectively....

I would like to see a few more shots of the Morgan, from various angles. The view as shown seems to show a somewhat truncated bonnet. Having said that the OCA bodies that I have already are pretty accurate.

Juan, that VW Buggy is truly amazing!
OCAR bodies have always represented a good value for money resin body, most of them now include white metal or plastic detailing parts and waterslide decals latest releases are now using the PCS 32 chassis and can be supplied with complete running gear. The PCS 32 chassis will even fit the VW Buggy if you shorten it enough. For a full list of OCAR bodies we have available check the cars/resin section on my website.

Just noticed some of the pictures of the OCAR bodies are mixed up ...... another job for tommorow!

Hi,

I have an ocar morgan and it is good. I'm halfway through putting it together, but I have discovered that if you use the PCS 32 chassis the motor and the nicely moulded interior want to occupy the same space. Possible solutions are; to get rid of most of the interior, or use another chassis. As I like the interior I decided to try to get something else to fit. I couldn't find a suitable front engined one so I've decided on modifying a pink kar chassis with the little cube motor. These motors are so small that with a bit of filing and sanding (of the resin not the motor) they can be made to fit under the interior. Not ideal I agree but those motors aren't as bad as they look (see recent posts in support of ninco nc-1s). Any one else come across this problem? Any other solutions?

Always a problem I'm afraid. How about a modified Cobra or Cobra Daytona Front Engined chassis?.......

I've yet to build mine so any thing you find out would be very useful.

The only other option would be to build your own using a MOTOGP motor mounted as a sidewinder.

Alan

QUOTE How about a modified Cobra or Cobra Daytona Front Engined chassis?.......

I tried the MRRC cobra chassis but I think the problem there was the tapering bonnet width of the morgan, just not enough room. I guess the daytona would probably have the same problem. I also tried various fly sidewinders but still not enough room. I'm not familiar with the motogp motors but it's an interesting idea. Has anyone used one in a car before and could tell us about it? Do these motors have enough oomph to drag a resin body around a track at a reasonable speed?

By the way congrats to Alan and Juan on your excellent results. If I end up with anything half as good maybe I'll post some photos here.

Cheers,

mdhnn

The PCS chassis is pretty flexible, I've just shortened it to fit my Small Car Proxy entry, an Arii Mazda R360 (and that car is small!) and I was impressed.

Oh Juan, awesome beach buggy, love the guys' hair.


Cheers,

Mark

Now that's what I'd call a buggy. Just needs a few flower power decals from Patto to finish off. I don't think it's made from the Airfix kit, the rears different as is the engine and although it's a great passenger he's not as good looking as the Airfix one.

Also I note that none of you have mentioned OCARs best new release by far - the 1967 MGB Sebring racer of Timo Makinen, also designed to fit onto PCS32 chassis.
The photo-etched chrome grille is to die for.
