I haven't done this-but it seems like a great idea.

I did not try the GT40 but I built a 1/24 scale 330P4 and it worked well but its small size required some drilling and chopping of the chassis.

Here's the link http://www.tsrfcars....WS-10-10-06.htm Go to page 2 of this forum, the 4th post and go down to #5 entry and this link will be there. I have been going to do this and have not for one reason or the other. If the same thing can be done with the Ford GT 40, would have a pair to run together.

We added the link to this page on the TSR website in the "body mounting tips" section in "technical help". :)

Appears from deminisions that the same mods for the 330 will work on the GT. May not need to make pan width adjustment though. Will have to try and see before making pan narrower.
