Vallejo has brought out some special paint for Lexan, but I use their range of Model Air colours (airbrush) for plastic model and wanted to test them out on Lexan as well:

with reduced pressure you can use them on your work desk, bot a paint booth is recommendable.

 

IMG_2577.JPG

 

I used Tamiya masking tape for the decoration. The colours are standard model air, backed with crome which gave a deep metallic effect. It looks actually better in real life :-)  The body is 1:32 and for our 32 Open class.

As always, wonderful work. In my delusions of retired, uh.... retiredness(?) , I see myself working on such projects, one after the other, once I retire. But I worry that the luxury of having so much time to do whatever I want will be dominated by one of my other passions... doing nothing. :laugh2:

The method of drop arm hinge on the F1 car #7, I have only seen that one other place, on a Foamy (Dennis Hill) F1 IRRA car.

It is stronger than the normal method and works really well.

Paul, my first (Danish) Retro F1 from 2008 had the same construction:

 

F1RetroChassis_006_640x480.JPG

 

And I have used it on a lot of chassis since and can´t remember that a drop arm ever broke off.

The F1's are great fun to drive - they handle very well, but are not very forgiving, so you have to "steer" the car into the curves. A challenge for the non-experienced driver :-)

 

The 3D printed chassis are modified copies of the discontinued German White Point chassis and handles like the original - meaning that with a rather high center of gravity they are also a bit challenging to drive. But we enjoy driving both car types and they are run on the same day in our National Championship Series.

Wow awesome new additions Niels!  They just look so real and just so much fun to drive :D

What sort of motors does the 3D printed chassis accept? Just the Plafit/Carrera Bison?

Paul,

the motor mount in the chassis is made for the 18D size motors.

 

We use the black "Carrera" motors which are cheap and last forever. As the motors are very similar in output, it guarantees close and exiting racing.

 

But generally the class is very cheap to operate. A 6 hours race cost 1 set of tyres and in worst case a new body :-)

It is a fantasy paint job on request of the customer, who wanted a Gulf-sponsored Retro F1 :-(

 

not my taste, but..... the customer is king ;-)

 

btw the blue no.15 is fantasy too, but more period accurate :-)

As I had an 1:24 Lola T70 body with the intake schnorkels laying around from Tom Anderson, I dedided to have a go at Skip Hudsons Lancer sponsored car for a White Point CanAm car

As I could not find any decals for it I had to do them myself, using Corel Draw and my new supercheap Xerox colour laser printer.
 
The car is a light blue/grey metallic with stripes going from the heaslight and side intakes. These stripes are apparently stickers with silver "brushed steel" deco. So what to do ???
I searched the net for suitable pictures of metal with this kind of surface treatment and was lucky to find a pattern that could be used. 
I drew the stripe pattern and by using both Corel Draw and photo draw i succeeded in making suaable decals with the pattern. I printed them on clear decals film and plan to paint them silver from the backside as the decals are applied from the inside.

The number disc and Skip Hudson logo was printed on white decal film as was the Lancer decal. The disc and logo background has to be cut out and positioned behind the clear decals (like Fred Cady decals).

White backgrounds added:

Now i need to find the other decals and mount these. When dry I will apply the silver behind the stripes.
 
more to come......
