Hi guys,

This may be a really stupid question (one of my specialisms) but does anyone know anything about comissioning untampoed cars (from Scalex)? Is it possible? Are there minimum orders? I guess it must be possible as I have some old Scoobys, Corollas and some sort of F1 in plain white, But do they still do it?

Just ignore me if I am being dense...

Cheers.

Phil

QUOTE With Rob Smith i also managed to buy a number of plain white Scalextric Subaru's and IRL's (not directly from Hornby).QUOTE

Jexy1, thanks for the info, I wonder if that's where mine originated?

QUOTE I like that word! Is it new?QUOTE

Mr M, it's not to me, my verbosity knows no bounds


QUOTE What is it you wanted the cars for?QUOTE

Wraith, I was after some of the Aussie Holden's and Falcon's to convert to Police examples which is why white would be ideal. I was thinking that I might offset the number needed by seeing if there were people who wanted to make up their grids with cars not available comercially.

3000 is way out of my league though. So if anyone knows where I might buy up some Holdens and Falcons on the cheap then I guess I will have to go Full Monty on them. Geddit?

Thanks for your time in replying people!

Hi Embs,

Wow. So basically, its unlikely I can pick a few up for re-livery? I have just arrived in New Zealand and fancied a quick project to add to my other Police vehicles. Any idea where the best place to look would be?


Cheers

Phil

QUOTE (Ember @ 10 Sep 2011, 06:55) <{POST_SNAPBACK}>For the V8SCs? The usual online suppliers or eBay. Thunderbird Slot Raceway in Adelaide, Armchair Racer in Sydney (I can't post links for them as they're not forum sponsors), Slot Shop, Melbourne Model Raceway and Mobile Raceway in Melbourne, Slot Race Shop in Napier (?). Google them. Ebay sometimes has them really cheaply, but as with everything you have to bide your time. Scaley tampo is easy enough to remove with a soak in metho and a toothbrush. The biggest problem with the V8SC is the low detail/high impact nature they don't strip down completely to individual components. Single piece body with black windows.

Embs

Thanks Ember. Yeah, I meant the V8SC's. Have been slowly learning how Trade me differs from Ebay... The nature of the police cars from Scaley means the ld/hi won't be too much of a prob as I am just getting away from 'box fresh' cars. Have just finished my first resin kit from Teamslot, a kit bash from Arii and am halfway ish through an avenger from 1/32nd. Any ideas on where I might go for digital track with PC connectivity for a circuit like the Top Gear set in this hemisphere?

Embs

Thanks Embs. It's seems much less cheeky if I can say 'Hi Ember suggested...' as I guess some members must get LOTS of PMs.

You are most welcome.

I haven't been on SlotForum for that long and everybody is really, really helpful. I love it! I am just glad I can give something back. Enjoy your Aussie Muscle cars!

Kind regards

I've found that too. Makes things much easier, especially as I am newly emigrated and trying to find my way around! Thanks again. Phil
