Where did you get the cut-away drawing? My slot car room is covered in these.

Here is the box made with chopsticks Obéché.

I still have the same method of construction.

The two black lines are 1 mm plywood glued between the wooden sticks, they will use it to achieve symmetry of the car.
 


I found the cut-away here

Thank you friends




The idea is to cover the central portion of the auto sheet aluminum of 0.3mm thickness.

So this morning out of bed, I did a quick test to see if this is possible.

The tool is brief and to the rest of my remaining sheet and brush handle to push the plate, this is what happens.

It's not perfect but it is feasible, the parts will be rebuilt as soon as I get back the sheet

Crap that's neat!  Doing the wing too?
Never understood the desire to carve wood for a slot car until I built the Maserati 250. But, after..... learned its a great aspect of this hobby.
Carving the body out of wood gives the project soul.

Very nice work Régis, very nice.
Hope you do a brass rod chassis instead of the normal pan.
Jail door chassis are way cooler!

I guess that means you'll have to stop posting the cars progress here. I was told nobody wanted to see things in "the magazine" that were already posted online. :unknw:

I had not thought of that, I will continue the photos on Slot blog,

If Rick has written is true, I will not write articles.

Hi Régis,

 

I chose to continue posting with my friends here on Slotblog too. If I was a faster builder perhaps I could do both but I can't,  I'm such a SLOW builder!

Ah, but Rick, you actually finish your projects, which in my eyes makes you a fast builder! 

 

Looking at my pile of unfinished projects, I can only admire your speed... 

 

And I think that Régis' car, like a lot of your projects, would still make good magazine articles...
