As always, brilliant work. But I must inquire - just how big a stash of NOS parts do you have??? And how did you come by it???

Envious minds want to know.

Thanks everyone for your support and following along on my sometimes drawn out projects.   :)

 

As for my NOS parts, I decided over 20 years ago that my passion for the vintage slot car hobby was scratch building not kit or RTR cars. Collecting parts at toy shows, car shows, vintage slot car parts sellers and auction sites followed. No "Little Red Wagons", "Tijuana Taxies" and the like, just parts - parts - parts.   :crazy:

Right Rick, I thing we"ve basically understood that. 

 

But are there any of the commercial cars that you have a weak spot for? Mabybe one or two socked away on a shelf somewhere... .

 

Don 

PS: my main interest is scratchbuilt cars as well, but I'm nowhere near as productive as you, and have collected quite a few others - with a focus on the quirky ones! I have managed to collect quite a few period scratchbuilds, from the sublime to the ridiculous!

Hi Don,

 

Only in the last year or so I've collected some kit cars I've always been fond of. I have 4 Monogram 1/32 first generation cars. I've finished one (a Lola GT) and I'm currently working on a Ferrari 275P here on Slotblog. I also have a few 1/24 sports and GT cars, a Cox Ford GT and Cheetah and a Monogram Ford GT Roadster.

 

But my biggest soft spot is for the hard body Formula 1 cars from Cox, Strombecker and Revell like this BRM:

I just love the 1 1/2 liter GP cars with their tall skinny tires...... :crazy:

Thanks for the reply, Rick.

And the first slot car I ever had, way back in the day, was that Revell BRM.
