Some years ago, I build an 1:24 Slot Car copy of Skip Hudsons beautiful Lola T70 CanAm car: http://neckcheese.bl...-canam-car.html [/size]
 
This has been sold long ago, but when I was asked to build a similar model for a special event, I was happy to meet the challenge and decided to build the complete car i 60's style with chassis soldered from brass and using period vintage components when possible.
I have showed the '67 type chassis in an earlier post, but here is some pics of the finished model:[/size]

I got to see this car in person at the RM Motorsports Open House/Christmas Party in Wixom Michigan. I had forgotten about the Lancer sponsorship. One of the hosts knew all about it.

My Avast did not like the link for some malware reasons ??? reasons, but I like the picture. Please note that I caught the pattern on the wing decoration on my model :-=

 

Does anyone else have the same problem ?

Where is the body available from?

 

I saw Skip Hudson race that car in anger at Road America in 65-66. One of my favorite cars and drivers of the day.

Here you go, Nelson.

Merry Christmas.

If there is a secret, always do a crop, even a minimal one.

That seems to lock it in the direction you want it to be seen in.
