Are most of the bodies you use resin or are they some other material? The details on cars this small is quite sharp. What do you use for motors? Is there one or two that's pretty much standard for 1/43 scale cars, or do they widely differ like the other slot car scales? What do you use for tires & gears? Maybe you can tell I don't know much about 1/43 scale slot cars, but I've always been involved in 1/24 scale with an occasional venture into 1/32.

Christmas ornaments, I never would have guessed. But their detail is first class. :)
