I couldn't be bothered to start another thread, so I'll revive this one for a while.
It's scratchbuilt season here at Merkit towers.
Besides building for the Bordeaux meeting in June (progress pictures later) I decided to build a few cars for racing at SSRC, most of my racers haven't been touched in 10 years and are beginning to struggle for performance.
First is the former "Ninco classic" class, which now allows cars to CSCRA rules.
I had started this 300 SL a while back, but reading the rules properly, I realised that a 50s car was at a great disadvantage compared to mid sixties stuff.
Modified Revell 300SL with a Monoposto chassis and anonymous 25K motor.
As I said, the rules are biased towards the later cars. Back to the drawing board, I shall instead press into use this 280SL probably with another monoposto.
Besides those 2, I am also working on a 1/24th "big Bird" for the forthcoming meeting at Rockingham.
Strangely enough, it's another Mercedes (plastic toy made in Hong Kong).
Body has been glued together and the bottom cut out.
