Picked these up from a collector in New Zealand.  He listed the bodies as George Turner models.  One chassis is stratch built and the other is a Monogram 1/32 F-1/Midget chasses.

The listing was wrong, they are GT Models bodies as in Gordon Tapsell, they made vac bodies in both scales from the late 60's through to the late 70's at which point they stopped trading.

Paul, can you show us what the scratchbuilt chassis looks like? Most of us are familiar with the Monogram. Thanks. :)

A few more pics including Lotus chassis.  These are from when I first got them in the mail last week.  I'll take clearer pictures of the Lotus chassis tonight when I get  home from work. 

 

Thanks for the data regarding the origin of the bodies.  Never heard of GT Models so good to know.  I have built up a George Turner Tyrrell resin body before

Thanks Paul! Would it be possible to take top & bottom photos of the Lotus chassis once you get home from work? I'm interested seeing how that particular chassis is put together. Can you determine whether the brass main rails are made of tubing or rod?
