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 :-)

 

yours, Niels DK

I don't recognise the light blue #5. What kind of car was that and who was the driver of the 1/1 scale car?

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
 
6674836221_b0ccf630a4_o%2520%25281%2529%
 
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.
 
Skip%2520%25282%2529.JPG
 
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).  
 
Skip%2520%25281%2529.JPG
 
Most clear decals added
 
IMG_7324.JPG
 
White backgrounds added:
 
IMG_7326.JPG
 
Test of the stripe decals with silver paint below
 
IMG_7325.JPG
 
Now i need to find the other decals and mount these. When dry I will apply the silver behind the stripes.
 
more to come......
