hello friends , here my vision of the new Ninco's type E .
It's far from perfect but still better than the original spanish slot car I think .
All parts are from the original model excepted the wheels , as I wanted to obtain an " economic" model .
Chassis was separated to rebuild an entire body without large gaps .....
hope you'll like it .

Sweet - what wheels have you used? The ones that came with my car are probably the most out of round wheels I have seen.

cheers

Wheels by BRM . Too large at the rear but I'll change them soon for front wheels with thinner tires ...

Hello Bigblock,

Where are all these barns to find such beautiful (well restored) exemplars?
I like your model e-type !!

Cheers

Did you cut the side sills of the chassis and glue them to the body?

I need to do something about the wheels on mine so it looks like a set of BRM or Racer might be the go - or maybe the new Cartrix metal wheels

Really nice job thanks for sharing

cheers

Too bad about the rust, otherwise it would be worth a mint! Haha, just kidding of course ...... beautiful job, looks great with the BRM wheels. Did you use bare metal foil to finish the window trim?

Thanks for sharing!

that's true : tires are not really up to scale but the most important for me is to obtain a nice "global visual effect" .
But I'll try with smaller rear tires when I'll get the good wheels .
And no : I never use bare metal foils . All my windows are hand painted .
