Following a tip on here from ages ago, I mixed clear tamitya yellow with future/klear, and painted the inside. If you hold it up to the light, it is a bit streaky, not sure if I didnt mix it enough, or if it was the way I painted. I was thinking of doing another coat, but a dry fit proved it is literally impossible to detect the streakiness when assembled, so I just gave an extra coat of klear to the inside and one to the outside. Assembled the tint is EXACTLY as I had hoped,,, if only i didnt KNOW it was streaky really!!!
Hardest bit off this kit is that the plastic of the body is really thick. Vents had to be opened, but the tricky bit (especially 'cos I still don't have a dremmel) is thining the cockpit roof and side bits. I chose to scrape from the inside, and it seams to have worked ok
Sadly,neither the Ninco 356 or my 32223 inserts are correct for this car.
Porsche 906 wheels are prominent on my"Got to find some decent one's"list.
What comes in the kit for wheels,are they decent enough to spin down and use.If they are indeed correct,if you could send me the set,I would gladly turn them into inserts,and send you back a resin set,complete with a set of wheels for your car.
It's amazing how a little,or sometimes a lot, of work to these old "kits" can produce a superb slot car that's as good as most rtr's out today. I've just about finished my Monogram Ferrari GP and this is just the inspiration needed. You've done a fantastic job and I will definitely add this to my list to build.
Do you have a pic of the bottom side of the body,
I have an Airfix/(mrrc) body I jusst bought on ebay.
There some plastic strips running lengthwise molded onto the bottome side of the interior tray. They look like they were designed for some sort of pop in chassis.
The space between them is too narrow for the motors I have tried (i.e. Pittman l96B)
I am open to suggestions.
