Hi,id like to see a slot car company make in 1/32 resin all the cars which came in first from the beginning of the Indy 500 to the modern era.Also the same for the Brooklands racetrack in England.I would also like to see more cars made from 1900-1925.Why has no one made a 1930s ERA?Its a famous British racecar.I have several custom made ERAs,some slot,some rail.Last i would like to see a series of historic streamline record breaker slot cars made.what do others think ?bernard sampson

Hi Bernard, a lot of the cars you want are available. Have a look at these sites

http://www.tertrerouge-racingcars.com/

General interesting pre-war racers including streamliners and record breakers. Contact Dave Capalen for present availability.

http://www.penelopepitlane.co.uk/body-kits.html

Napier Railton, Babs, Birkin Bentley.......

http://www.georgeturnermodels.com/index.ph...p;shop_cat_id=4

Look at the bottom of the page. It takes a long time to show the pictures.

Look on eBay and look for a seller called 'geodies'

He has nothing for sale at present, but under 'completed listings' you will see a large number of Indy cars. The quality is low, the accessories laughable, but if you buy them at the opening bid, they are value for money.

Peter

Thanks Peter,i have many of these cars you mentioned(bernardsslotcarmuseum.com),but i think some companies should make a "series" of Brooklands cars etc.like Topslot from Spain who are currently making every Pegaso made(i think its 31 models,12 have already been released) & are doing a series of Mercedes cars.This is the first time a company has done this.I think its a great idea.Im collecting both of these series.They release a couple of cars in limited #s each month.So where are the racing cars from 1900-1920 ?There are a few,just a handful & thats it.Bernard Sampson

If you want them so much, why don't you make them yourself?
And the response of "I haven't got the skill to make them" is a bit lame as these skills can be learnt or you could pay someone to make them for you.

Aston Martin V8 Vantage - the old one from the 1980's - makes a Mustang look like a wuss

Mercedes or VW Van - something to race against my Transit conversion

Traction engine - why not?

Double Decker bus - grant a bit difficult under bridges but what a challenge for engineers - especially on wooden tracks!

Fordson 4wd Tractor - again why not?

Any Modern Rolls Royce - something to match NASCARS for size

Austin 1300 - I could hand paint the wings red (white body) like my very first car!!!

Jaguar XF - want real one, never going to get one - 1:32 only option ;-(

Triumph TR6 - gorgeous

Marlin Roadster - even more gorgeous

Chitty Chitty Bang Bang - as long as it has a 45k motor and variable flaps to adjust lift
