Hello to all

This year for our vintage race in Bordeaux, I decided to do the race with a Allard.

The theme this year is Goodwood.

I will therefore use the bodywork PACTRA, and try to fit an engine below, without

cutting the bodywork, this is not easy.

The PROTO SLOT KIT resin driver has been adapted to the cockpit.

I cut off her legs and arms, oh my god!

I have the 1/24 Pactra Allard fitted to a 1/32 Cox sidewinder chassis - an easy fit and it runs well on urethane Cox repro tires.  If I can find it, I'll take a photo.

Hey Al - Cox never made a 1/32 sidewinder chassis! Which one are you thinking of? 

 

Great project Régis - and you're starting even later than me, that's always encouraging. Régis always comes up with killer chassis, can't wait to see what he does here... I did the Pactra a number of years ago, with an Ulrich suspension chassis and steering. 

 

Looks like there will be a couple more Allards this year, carved out of Balsa.... including mine!

Just pulled it out of a box and looked - yes, it looks like it is 1/24 - big chrome can motor, trapezoidal mid section, sprung drop arm and front axle mounted by a plastic "suspension" molding.  I built it almost 20 years ago for one of the Las Vegas Rad Trax gatherings.  Cox wheels (look like a Ferrari pattern) and screw-on knock offs.

Yep, sounds like the 1/24 Cox - wouldn't have thought it fit the Allard!

A green Allard was the "cover car" project on a Car Model issue in the 60's. IIRC it used an open frame motor.

I have matched the Cox/Pactra Allard vs similar DC 706 powered cars.  The Cox chassis has significantly more top end.

Thank you friends

The chassis is adjusted to this body, but despite this.

I was forced to cut the body slightly because of the engine bearing.

16D engine and Russkit rims, that's good
