Hi everybody,

I have never built a 1/32 slot car kit or any scale kit to that matter. I was considering getting a kit that would be cheap (£30-40) and comes with all the necessary parts to get it running on the track. I t would also need to be relatively easy but still be a challenge. I thank anybody who replies to this message.

Those MRRC Clubman kits; the Ferrari GTO and Porsche 904 are great. I hope they're still easily available.
Rehashes of the old Monogram models, they are fairly complicated but not difficult to put together. They have a nice metal adjustable chassis, good motor and excellent running gear. And VERY tasty body shells that you can practice your concours skills on.
I hope MRRC have some more in the pipeline.

Like MM i havent build a 1/32 slotcar before. So i have a few more questions!

I can see you can get 2 types of MRRC Clubman kits; Clubman and Clubman Special.

The ordinary kit doesent come with chasis etc. I dont have a problem buying motor, wheels, tires etc. Actually i dont need to buy it, ill just use some of my wrecked cars! But where do i get the chasis

Now that Monogram themselves are making slot cars I doubt If we will see any more of the 60's Monogram cars reissused by MRRC.
Wouldn't be suprised if Monogram don't release a few themselves though, that's if they have any old tooling for the ones we havn't seen already

I think you can get repro Monogram-type chassis fairly easily. Try Electric Dreams in the States, or Pattos, but I havn't used them myself. I bet Phil has a few originals in stock...

Hi Ben
I have a couple options available. One is the Monogram Shelby Daytona chassis. The body kits are readily available (at least in the states) and come unpainted. Also if you didn't want to use one of my chassis the plastic chassis are available as well. The other option is the 240Z kit. This one is based on an Arii model kit and uses one of my custom chassis as well. You can see them here:http://slotcarchassis.com/

Thanks
Derek

WOW! Derek- those are seriously cool chassis. If they 'impress the chicks' half as much as they do me, you must be fighting them off with a stick.
Lucky man.

HI

Was going to post up that link Al, but I couldn't find it before.

Cheers

"I removed the link and the post from Al (sorry Al) This topic has been widely read and is closed but for reading now on more than one forum.

People can make their own minds up if they haven't already. There is nothing wrong with a link to Ej's, we are not forcing those that read it to buy anything"
