Ken, contact Noose, he might have a few of them that are used for jail door racing. At one time, he & Duffy were importing bodies from John Dilworth.

Niels,

Beautiful work. I always admire your attention to detail and realism. Racing these on your new track should be a lot of fun. What motors are you running? How do they compare to a Falcon 4 or Falcon 7?

Thanks Rich,  the cars are great fun to drive on the new track in Kolding :-)

 

We use the Fox10 motor which is rated at 25K RPM's  - its not so fast and aggressive as the Falcon 7 - the Falcon 4 I dont know.

One of the Facebook photo galleries had some photos of what looked to be artistic glass vases, in addition to slot cars, & a family gathering at the dinner table. This particular gallery must have had over 200 photos. I stopped looking at it after about 140 photos. :)

There is a lot to be said about slot cars that look that good and will be raced in anger.

 

Absolutely gorgeous cars. :good:
