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:

Google killed their Picasa Webalbum and I dislike Google Photo that replaced it. It also caused problems uploading my photos here, so I am slowly moving all my Photos to my old Fotki Album, which I have opened again.
 

So therefore a whole bunch of new cars :-)  Some are already racing in France and more will be on their way in a day or two :-)

14241451_10210575357324787_6144255224609

 

Here are the two latest bodies I made for myself:

15975251_10211792740278600_6757599991293

 

As usual, Bodies from John Dilworth, chassis, paint, decals, wheel, and driver insert are done by me. :-)

Very cool stuff. I agree those would be cool cars to race. That chassis is killer-looking. I wish we could race those bodies also, so realistic!
