Hi everyone!

I am building this wood track replica of Circuit Gilles-Villeneuve since 2012, so 9 years now!

I wanted to do a little memorial movie starring 2 Nascar Legends: Jeff Gordon vs Jimmy Johnson.

The cars were molded and decals home made.

Enjoy the movie!!

Fabulous work, i live the scenery detail. Thanks for posting.
Great work J-F, very very impressive. From the model making to the electronics to the film making, a very professional job!

Regards, Lloyd

you write the cars are moulded. What were the patterns ? Diecasts ?

Could you show some pictures of the construction, i.e. chassis from both sides ?

And - how do you make the white lettering for the black background ? Could you please send a close - up of the lettering on the hood ?


Hi Roland!
I will post more pictures of the cars to explain.
I am usung SCX nascar chassis.
I only did a mold for the body, but I did modified the shape of the rear spoiler to avoid having a moving part, and to have a more realistic look.
My goal was to be able to cast multiple Nascar body, paint my favorites, but still use the same 4 SCX chassis.
For the decals, I found the image on internet, scale in Excel, and print on Waterpaper decal sheet. For the white letters on black, I use 2 layer of decals, or sometime I just glue the decal with the white carton underneath.

track is great

cars are lovely

your editing skills ....... just far out ....... love it
Merci beaucoup, J-F.

You wrote you cast the bodies yourself. I just wanted to know what the patterns for the bodies were. Any diecasts, or SCX bodies ?
Thanks Oxo!

Arkay: I used the SCX body to cast, but I added some clay to mold the rear spoiler.

Sorry for the delay, I am doing some renovations in my basement, sonI did not took the time to post those pictures of the molding,

I see, thank you.

But why did you cast these bodies ? The SXC bodies are still available at EBAY & co. Even the undecorated neutral ones.

I wanted to be able to cast as many as I want to paint different bodies, but attach them to the same Chassis.

This is a few pictures of the construction:
