This is what I found in the bottom of a "Used 1/32 Parts Lot" box I recently purchased.

Did this come in kit form? It looks like a very interesting metal frame to tinker with. 
As you can see, I did not clean the parts for the photos. That is the next step. I would like to build one.

I really like the technical details on the few pieces I now have.

Up to now I have worked on modern plastic frames, and classic WOMPs.

Back in the day, I used to fabricate 1/24 frames from brass tubes and solder. 

 

Motor works very smoothly.

 

Can you recognize the frame manufacturer? 

 

Many thanks,

Steelhat Hal

Yes, it is a Beardog/AB Slotsport frame.  The rear upper arms have been broken or cut.

Many thanks! You are right on the money, according to the photos I found following your lead.

 

Anyone have photos of a completed chassis with body? I am going to pursue building one of these. I will love breaking out my soldering equipment.

Yup, it's one of my chassis. It should look like this: I no longer use the top plate. You can get on from here: http://www.abslotsport.biz/page6.html
