Bought boxed set (Opel, Mercedes and TT) reduced from £28 (??) to £14 at local model shop. Quality of finish very nice, so will they convert easily into slot cars?
Revell easy kit also available for 307, Scooby and Xsara WRC for bargain £4-99.
What is best way to get these bodies motorised? Should I look at ready built chassis, and would the Pendle or Slot It one do the job? willing to have a go at building own Chassis but never done this before, so any thoughts as to which components to purchase would be appreciated
QUOTE (Skeeter @ 6 Apr 2005, 01:51)revell easykits onto Slot.It HRS chassis seem to be the way to go.
As long as you don't mind the wheels sticking out a lot... the HRS is at the front at least 63 mm wide (including slot.it wheels and tyres) and those kits are 58-59 mm wide... Of course you can use the kit wheels, then the chassis front width will be reduced to around 59 mm (kit rear wheels at front HRS)
The original body holders are to broad, have to be made longer towards the chassie and then cut to length. Note that I've kept the triangles thus made.
Cut the hole for the engine at the back. It's the one you can see the rollcage in...
The two rear axle holders are trimmed slightly to make room for the engine.
Apart from that they are all four kept, as they will help you fixate the body when gluing the body holding cups.
Fairly neat, if I may say so.
I've used Ninco's front hubs all around. Partly because they are more narrow on the inside, partly because I'm fairly happy using them (even if I must glue them in place).
Then I found that I had to trim the airdam somewhat...
used a Fly motor bracket, slot.it V12/23k, gears, rear axle, bearings and wheels and cut up an old Ninco toyota corolla chassis I had lying around for the guide. Guide itself is a spring loaded Ninco guide without the spring
