Sorry to go off at a tangent
but, just looking at Russell's MRE link I noticed that the forthcoming Scalextric Historic Vanwall pictured there appears to be of Tony Brook's 1958 Monaco car not the 1961 Vanwall.

They do look good and of course can be repainted. Well done Scalextric it only took you 4 years to catch up with SRA!! The re release of the pit lane track sections has to be a must, not just for digital either.

You didn`t waste any effort painting the SRA crew as these new Scalextric figures are gonna need a paint job unless you want blue or yellow? Believe me painting metal figures is a lot easier than painting plastic!

Yup, same thoughts here.

Good to see Scalextric release scenery pieces although, still can't help feeling that the cardboard buildings are a bit disappointing.

All this attention to detail for the figures, then you house them in a cardboard box...

*runs*

By the way, great link provided there Russell, There are loads of pictures of the forthcoming releases - including what appears to be prototype pictures too.

The Corvette labelled street livery? Looks like the same car modelled and featured on Mark Gussins site.


If the Vanwall and the Maserati are the two cars pictured; I sure wouldn't mind. Any classic race cars (especially F1) are welcome.

Also, won't these be some of the first classic F1 cars to be released for a long time & built to todays standards?


Jeez, this hobby is getting expensive...

Jamie.

HI Muffin Man

Only too happy to help you. E mail me and I`ll explain some tips on saving time and getting your figures to look good. I`m in the middle of designing seated modern looking spectators at the moment.

Can we add two more Smilies for this site... one with tears and another with an anorak (or bobble hat)!

The refuelling rigs shown in the pics are the F1 rigs produced, I believe, by Intertechnique in France, whereas the IRL cars in the pics use gravity fed refuelling, the rigs being 2 metres or so off the ground...

Oops! Sorry, I'll go and get my anorak!!

Nevertheless... I think I'll get at least 2 pit crews!!

As you guys were discussing the metal SRA figures earlier I thought that I would butt in and post a pic of some I painted up a while back:



Here Scalextric and MRRC/Monogram spectators look on while SRA medics help a driver back to his feet after collapsing under the weight of his own crash helmet.

Nice job John, glad you have done justice to my designs! I usualy position the driver being pulled from a burning car...that`s why his arm is up, shielding himself from the flames. Got any more pics of the range that you have painted mate?
