The idea is to make a fun car to clean my track slot.

For this car, I'm going to use wood, inspiring me a sculpture out of the imagination of a French sculptor ceramist.
Here are a few of these achievements

no sophisticated mechanism, it is very easy to do.

to complete the car, it remains to mount the motor, and position the other guide at the back.

wrapping strange machine with sheet aluminum, it is 0.3mm thick and is glued to the Araldite on previously coated wood glue cyanoacrylate

game of patience.
drilling 63 holes Ø 0.4 mm and installation of a head rivets 0.5mm.

Simply wonderful work of Craft Art Regis!  Functional as well as beautiful, very inspiring,

.

You have a great "eye", and by thinking "outside of the box" and applying it in this manner really shows just how diverse your talents are.

 

I'm sure this piece will always and forever have great appeal to anyone who views it.

 

Bravo!  :good:

Thanks Bruce

 

 


Great time this weekend, the car made the first laps

it now remains to finishes, frame and painting, and this is not what takes the least time.

It was not easy to position the motor in the body, with this banana-shaped frame  :dash2:

The transmission shaft passes right between the two drivers.

Regis,

 Are you planning on painting the body? I think it looks amazing in it's bare finish.

 

 Great job. A work of art that is also functional. Thanks for sharing your work with us.

No paint on the body, only the drivers and matt varnish on the frame.

pilots must removable beings like all my cars to be able to touch up paint if necessary.

so I stuck to a piece of Araldite M2 threaded rod on one side and the other a brass rod 1.5mm dia.

It is simple and it avoids problems when refinishing paint.

Here are pictures of the car over, I was forced to reduce the length of my two guides so she can take my Ninco tight radii.

Thank you Sam

In fact, the mechanic is terrorized, the engine is evil and there are no brakes on the front wheels.

Here is a picture of the sculpture of the ceramist Guillaume MOREAU which I was inspired to make this car slot.

And follow a series of 10 photographs taken under the sun, after a week of rain

Oh WOW! I am blown' away by this wonderful work of art, your scratch building skills are a true inspiration.  I appreciate the detailed photos of the process, you should do an how-to video of a build like this, you could sell tons of them.
