1/24 Honda RA272E

After a chaotic start, things are beginning to take shape
I ended up with this chassis which can use both Fox 10 and Scalectric slimline motors and 3/32" axles
The chassis has a drop arm and is looking very similar to the ones used for our 1:24 retro F1 series
The chassiset fits the body
Thinking about making some suspesion details - trial fit with kit parts
Rear uprights in 1,5mm brass
Finished uprights mounted with other parts made from 1mm brass tube. The hole in the upright i bigger thatn the axels for clearance. The real axle bearings are in the motor bracket
Ezhausts will pass below the the rear cover and conceal much of the gears etc
Black parts is plastic kit details - i had to cut a bit in the body to make room for the suspension parts
the naked chassis
Scratchbuilt shock absorbers - springs are kit parts
Trial assembly - i still wait for the real tyres which is in the mail, but they will be much sismilar to the ones shown here. The chassis will be tested with the Scalex FF motor, as its very small ond allows the use of a full 3D driver figure.
The resting work on the body etc will be Stephen's job ;-)

That's one on my list to build as well. Very nice work so far, Niels! Watching along, too.

Remember, two wrongs don't make a right... but three lefts do! Only you're a block over and a block behind.
