Beejay's thread a while back about what we were building made me take some photo's of the project that came after my two F-1 cars for the proxy race. I have a few of Victor Ferguson's immaculate 1/32 vacforms and decided to make something a little radical, with magnet traction, for hometrack use.

The chassis looks like this:



Motive Power is a Slot.it 29K - originally I tried to use a Falcon, but that was way too much power for the weight! I don't have a picture of the underside yet, but there's a TSRF bar magnet nestled underneath between the motor and the gear. Tires are Indygrips on Slot.it rims at the rear.

The body so far looks like this:



I got the green a little wrong and I still need to make some decals for it, but the overall impression is fairly good, and best of all it goes well.

Enjoy.

Brilliant, Dennis! You can only get an inline under those LMP bodies. Any chance of a picture of the underside of the chassis, please?

Kind regards

Russell

Some pretty fancy pipe-bending there Gascar! REALLY nice work- crafty design too. Must try some more spaced-out stuff like this....

Very slick, Dennis! Some nice wire-bending for sure!


One great thing about scratchbuilding.... there's always a slightly different way to build a chassis. Nice work!
