Here's another little project of mine, my Lotus 30.
The body is an old Supershells, to which I have successfully fitted the chassis and wheels from a Revell/Monogram King Cobra. It was a simple matter to drill two holes in the chassis in line with the mounting points on the body. I added the front mounting point myself.
The detail parts are from various sources. The interior is robbed from the donor King Cobra, the driver figure is from a Scalextric Cooper T53, the air intake grill is the radiator grill from a Scalextric Porsche GT3, and the roll hoop and steering wheel were made from coloured paper clips! The whole lot is temporarily held in place with blu-tak until I get round to painting it.
This will the first slot car I have painted myself, so I am waiting until I can talk to an experienced modeller before I start.
My third 'Ladies' car which is for my youngest daughter who was 20 at the time I started it. She is now 21 and in Japan teaching English as a Foreign Language (TEFL) for a year. Thanks to 'skype' she has seen it and is pleased with the result.
A couple more pictures will be in a blog in due course. I've also managed to airbrush my Airfix Mercedes Benz W125 before the rains came again.
