Just arrived this morning, a few pics for you to dribble over!

Had to take a picture of the magnet as well cause its massive, tyres need truing bounces well round my track but once done I think it will be fine. The motor is a bit slower than the other NC5 cars which I think improves the classics cars.

Nice!
I'm waiting for the Olio Fiat version.

That mag looks a similar size to the one that came in my Fly Porsche 911.

Very nice. The magnet can easily be removed, and I think the model should be balanced, maybe needs just a little weight on the front if the magnet is removed.

So I am very happy, at last a nice detailed model from Ninco. Are they back on track or is it just a one-off between their low detailed cheap range and low detailed expensive lightning range ?

Good news no weight needs to be added and I never do, front tyres trued about half the original size and a set of 15's scrub put on the back. Drives like a dream not as mad as a NC5 clad car, but good for the small twisty tracks and not bad on my layout.

Has anyone compared this with the Fly version of the same car, in terms of appearance and performance?

On that note, didn't Altaya come out with a version of the same car as well?? Why do manufacturer's feel the need to redo liveries already covered (in many cases very well) by other companies? Doesn't seem to make much sense to me, but other's may disagree.

hi, guys
Just resized all those pics from 1500 x 2000 down to the maximum allowable of 500 x 800. Please be aware that you can
resize with just about any photo software, or simply set the resolution of your camera which is even easier. Let me know
if you have any questions, or go to the Rules and Guidelines which discuss all this.

Phil...buddy, what else can we do but keep telling people? *grin*

with best regards,
John

I'm sure Phil knows exactly how to downsize a photo better than the rest of you ... Maybe he didn't want to so those of us who wanted to see the car in detail could actually see it ....

Not yet, but I plan to.

I agree. (Puts on Spock voice....) It's illogical, Jim. Slot manufacturers, take note!

I find it easiest to use the parameters in whichever host I'm using.

Lee - what is your problem bud? Sarcasm is the lowest form of wit - If he knew how to do then he deliberately ignored and broke the rules - and I am sure he did not do that... Please stop being so antagonistic - it is un-necessary

I just spent 20 mins resizing those pics, rather than delete them for being way too huge and actually way too many of them
as well. My mistake.

Anyway, just to be clear, 500 x 800 pixels is the maximum size. If you want more detail, take a closeup picture. I went
ahead and deleted my pics since you "couldn't actually see" them anyway.

regards,
John
