My "Race Across America" entry, a Spirit Dallara kit with a NSR 25K King as its power plant. This was not how I expected to finish it but the weather and time constraints has been against my original idea.
I have just heard the news! At last I can justify my subscription to Sky. They are to broadcast coverage of all 38 NASCAR Sprint races this year, and IRL will again be covered in full.
Bernie and Max can go boil their heads!
I can't believe how long I haven't posted on here! In a similar vein I have at long last finished my "Michelin" Group C Sauber which is going to get an airing in the forth coming Formula Libre Open class.
I recently purchased, at a bargain price, the SCX Vintage McLaren M9A. This is the car I mean:
The problem with this car is it doesn't fit the requirements (pre 1968) for my favourite series, the Goodwood Theme nights at Alresford.
My solution - modify it, so that it looks like a 1966 McLaren M2B! That's the one with the modified Indy Ford V8 engine, not the Serenissima.
Firstly, I removed the rear wing, and cut off the font winglets. Then in order to make the engine look more like the Indy Ford V8 I removed the air intakes and exhausts, and swapped them around so the exhausts exited from the top of the engine, rather than the sides. I found a couple of chrome cylinder head tops and a better driver's head in my junk box, which finished it off nicely.
Here are some pictures of the result:
OK, it isn't the most accurate model, but it looks a lot more like a McLaren M2B than the original looked like an M9A!
Now all it needs is painting the correct colour. Any volunteers?
