You know... as editor, Gregg can only fire me.
Tell you what Régis, if Don is willing to help, I can promise you that this project will see the pages of Slot Cars Magazine. Damn the rules!


My justification is that the readership on this forum and FOLM is so small as to make publication in an international magazine worthwhile.
Especially since the project is just too cool not to print! 
Keep your photos high resolution as possible please...

... and just do what you do best.

Thank you friends,

I currently reflected on the chassis and on the wing, and if the car is successful, I will do an article with photos.



Here is the last piece of aluminum, rough cutting, it will be then adjusted formed and stuck to araldite on the body.

The body being slimming

body weighs 35 g with dimensions of 88 by 173 mm.

Real cars monsters, here next to a Porsche Russkit, I could not resist the urge to paint in red to see the car's curves

I learned doing the Balsa Proxy that that sealing the wood was of utmost importance.
So I painted a lot of clear sealer on first before primer and then base coat.

But then you already know that.... Carry on!

These builds are the most interesting thing about this board. The shear talent display is awesome. Love this project. Loved Jairus project just as much.

I made a static 1:24 model of the same car in the last century. I think it was started 25-30 years ago, but was finished about 15-20 years ago.
I was based on a clear slot car body - i think it was from GT-Models (UK) - and the body was made in Glasfiber from a automotive repair kit - everything was very primitive then. But still today I wonder how I made it - the body parts are very thin and delicate.

 

Image_7.jpg

 

Most of the parts came from the Heller Ferrari 330P4 plastic kit, including the engine. The model is not a great scale model, but looks good on my shelf :-)  the decals are deliberately fantasy as I did not like the sloppy livery the 1:1 CanAm cars had, so I dressed it in the "European" fashion :-)

 

I spent numerous hours on my model, so I really appreciate the amount of work Régis puts in his body.

 

Here is more pics of my model: http://racecars.dk/Ferrari612CanAm.htm

 

 

sorry for hijacking the tread, but I am crazy about this car :-)

Niels It's ok, it is the same theme.

Thank you very much for your photos, you have done a remarkable job with many details.

Today I made exhausts and I started the aluminum fin because I was not able to stick corectement the aluminum sheet metal on a wooden wing.

Here aluminum rims made on my metal lathe.

The resin inserts have been adjusted and glued on an aluminum washer, they must be painted.

It also requires that I look at how to fix the wing to the chassis, what is clear is that it will be removable and not too stuck in the body for not clamping the slight movements of the chassis.

It's almost the end.

Parts manufacturing of brass chassis.

The set is a little too heavy, the car weighs 197 g and it remains the details to mount.

Régis, I love the chassis!
Not too heavy for a wood car and with the right gearing you'll find the 26D motor can pull it around just fine.  Might need to zap the magnets however if it's an old motor.  John Havlicek can build you one that will make that car SING!  (run fast)

Beautiful project sir.

Bill is "Korrect". Mabuchi magnets were made by the process that makes them unable to be remagnetized by conventional means.....DON'T DO IT!

 

You'll kill or at the very least weaken them. :shok:

Thank you friends for your advice and encouragement.



Today I made the rear lights, with pieces of a real car.

They are glued to the aluminum, and then I used my my lathe.

Here is the strict minimum reduced engine for reasons of weight, the car with its frame now weighs 210g, and I still have to strengthen the front.

Latest photos before Christmas.
I'm happy as I managed to slip a driver PSK in full, copiously buffed, which I replaced the head.

I wish everyone, happy end of year celebrations
