This Policar was sent to me by Loosesalute a couple of months back and with the weekend being so nice I diecided to give the grey plastic body a quick respray and add a few Ferrari decals.

To be honest I've no idea what car this is meant to be? But it does remind of the sort of concept car Ferrari may have produced in the late sixties.

Have to say these little Policars do go very well. The combination of a big motor, low COG, lightweight build and a set of low profile Urethane tyres makes this a very rapid car on my track.

Many thanks for the car Kev, it's rather good fun

That looks like its got bags of character, must look great on track. Is it running on a pin guide? any chance of a pic of the guts?

Great job Pace! Looks proper mean now!
I actually think that they are probably abot 1/36 or 1/38 scale.
I would like to see what you could do with the Miura!
Cheers,
Kev

I think this is the DR Sebring model, perhaps actually modeled on a real concept car, or maybe just a Thingie...

Like you say Pace, these Policar models are very effective on the track. Here's a shot of the general chassis layout and another model or two (Ferrari, Osi Bisiluro, Osi Scarabeo). There were slight variations, and the next series of chassis wasn't as effective.

Many thanks for the comments


Thank you for pictures and info dgersh very helpful. As seen in the picture above the guide is a standard type guide similar to those used on the old Revell/Monogram cars.

Kev, I'll probably give the Miura a splash of paint too this weekend. I have rather a nice lime green which seemed to be a popular colour for the 1:1 Miura.

Great link Don!
It looks like the cars I sent Pace were the Alfa 33, Ferrari P5 & Lamborghini Miura.
Cheers

It's interesting to see that they are listed as 1/32. I'll take some pictures later of this one parked next to a Scaley GT car to show the difference in size.
