Hi,

 

This is my latest F1, it was supposed to be a McLaren M7. I think the body and the driver were made by piccomat, a german trader and manufacturer of slotcar parts back in the old days.

 

The chassis is scratchbuilt with wire and brass sheets, using 3mm axles and gearing. 

 

Thanks to neckcheese for his inspiration for the chassis (reallx nice tutorial on his danish website)

Walter
