Great looking Cuc Regis, Perfect color choice.

 

Just a thought, if you were to cut a piece of black card under the dash, it will give the illusion of a continuous flat floor to your interior. Love the faux drivers body also.

What would we do to a Cuc to make it better for today?  Gussets on the rear uprights for one.

David, do you have a display at home that shows all your thingies together? If you do, some on here might enjoy seeing photos of your entire collection in one place. I don't mind seeing each one individually, but often I don't recall if I've seen something previously.

Unfortunately I do NOT, I live with my youngest brother in a medium size three bedroom mobile home.

 

It's okay since I am retired and a widower but there is NO Space for anything.

Loads of stuff is in boxes but I do use one bedroom as my hobby and Computer room.

 

I designed up a great idea Display Case and my cousin the carpenter can make it, but haven't pulled the trigger on that yet,

It would be a "slice" on a commercial track all eight lanes and about two feet of track under glass at an angle! Doesn't take up much space and can showcase a lot of cars.

 

Instead of that, I will take and post some good "group" shots of my small collection.

David, I would love to see some group shots when you have time. You have designed some unique cars. :good:

 

I grew up watching all of the supermarionation I am sure it was the inspiration to get into model building. Supercar was early 60s. :)

 

Don't forget to put Mitch, Jimmy's pet monkey in the interior :laugh2:

UNABLE to go outside, I decided to clean my workbench of debris. While doing so, I ran across enough parts to assemble a few cars. First up I had an F1 chassis and a body that needed to be repurposed. Due to a personal dislike of F1s, I decided to take the chassis and convert it into something to be used with the repurposed body. The resulting creation:IMG_20190208_063558 (1).jpg

More fades I love it. Always had a liking for the Marcos Mantis.

 

It was the hot body for a minute at the track around 1968 or 69

Admiring Miko's Whisper made me realize that I never showed my Whisper under the skin, so here it is!

 

Front Wheels are Tradeship/Wayne Engineering Ball Bearing WE100.

 

Chassis by Watson Chassis Werks! Features the Magic Sliding Weight!

 

Paint was done by Jairus of course.

 

Motor has a vintage Rocket armature 28/28 and was prepped by Havlicek.

 

I also need to show the Shinoda 70 GT chassis werk from Master J.

The guys from Pee Wee Valley, KY used to wind some fast arms. I like the Jairus paint on this particular car.
