Hi ,

 

I bought some thingie repop bodies recently (see my other thread).

 

Today I finished the first one:

 

The Spoiler

The body is unfortunately a quite poor repop without good details compared to the original body. But it makes a good "track car".

 

The chassis is scratchbuilt with wire and brass sheets, "german" gearing and axles (3mm) and a 13D-motor, which makes it run really well.

Hopr you enjoy the pictures.

 

greetings

Walter

I don't know who did.

The body came out of a collection in germany.

I agree with Pablo, this chassis is nicely done!
