Hello,

Here are two 1/32nd Austin Healey quickly repainted. The original colours were sanded and a green Gunze/Mr Hobby has been spayed (in a attempt to match the famous "british racing green"). Anyway, don't look for historical accuracy. These cars were made for a proxy race and they were painted in the spirit of british sport cars racing in the sixties.

The bodies and wheels have been slightly overpainted with shades of greys and midstone, in order to give a dirty effect (due to a long race at Le Mans).

The two cars are powered by a new NC8 Ninco Thruster. #29 kept the original inline 9:27 gear ratio ( with plastic crown and pinion).#56 was fitted with slot it parts (axles, crown and 10 teeth pinion).

Wheels and tyres are BRM parts.

Interior, seats and pilots were painted with oil colours (Humbrol and Vallejo). I tried to give a worn aspect to the leather (red or brown seats).
Some adhesive friskette has been used to mask the screen wipers area on the wind screens, during airbrushing operations.

Cars were heavily weighted (20 grams of lead, due to the technical rules of the proxy race), but they are quite funny to drive on my Scalextric Sport track BRM tyres have quite a good grip on it. Guide is a NINCO suspended one.

Thanks Zagato, Your Aston Martin models are really amazing...

Tomwysom: Wheels and tyres are BRM ones. I replaced the original Ninco plastic made by these fine (but expensive) alloy model wheels.

They look amazing, an excellent job!

When my track build is completed I would like to start scratchbuilding cars, all looks a bit daunting though!

I have been looking at the Turner kits and like the variety.
