With the colder weather and the holidays approaching I found myself with the time to do some slot car building.

I have some Airfix kits that need to be built so I thought that I would begin with the TR4.

I wanted the chassis to be made of brass and to have a front motor with a drive shaft.





Here is the body on the chassis to test the car.







The car drives very well on our track. I have to complete the car but having too much fun driving it!

Look forward to any comments/thoughts anyone may have.

Thanks for looking.

I'd quite like to see it, too, but the website the pictures are on is blocking them from being cross posted, so we can't see them. Flickr and Photobucket are both popular choices for hosting pictures to share in online forums, and both have free options available.

C'mon, chop chop, people are waiting...

Thank you for confirming that the photos (finally) are visible. My apologies for the delay and my lack of memory on how to post. (It has been a while.)

I must say that the motor makes this car a lot of fun to drive so I am in the process of getting some additional cars to the same stage and paint them all at once.

I apologize for not fixing the post sooner as I am working on an MGB which will be posted as a seperate thread with photos that will hopefully work right from the start.

Thanks again for your comments and your patience.

I wouldn't mind some pics of the track as well it looks very scenic. You have also given me the inspiration to have a go at a brass chassis, I like the (dare I say) simplicity of yours
Thanks

Well, I had some time so I painted the TR 4.













Any and all comments are more than welcomed.

Thanks for looking.

John and Belkris, thanks very much for your colour compliments!

The credit has to go to our daughter who chose it and now wants the car once it is built to race against me and the MGB on our track.

I actually use an old Ruskit "Adjust-o-Jig" to make most of my chassis. For me it works quite well and is very simple to use.

Thanks again for your postings.

Thanks very much Kev!

Now our daughter is pushing me to finish both so we can race over the holidays!

The car is getting closer to completion. I only have the interior and decals to do.







Here is the TR 4 I am now making for myself to race against my daughter.





The two TR 4s side by side.





Any and all comments are more than welcomed.

Thanks.
