Will be there with my 1/32 cars Pete, and the Bandit!  

 

Rodney mentioned last meeting he'll be in Jamaica on vacay.

 

Picked up some new 1/32 stuffs that I detailed in the 1/32 vintage sub-forum...I think they are home set cars though...?  I will bring them along for you guys to check out.

 

See you then!

Mikey brought along some of his 1/32 scale cars so I took the opportunity to photograph them both top and bottom. He had several of them out on the track and they ran great, I wish I had thought to take pics of them in action but...

 

 Some really cool stuff here !  Mike can explain what we're looking at.

I like the Russkit powered MG & its simple brass chassis built around the Russkit brass mounting plates. :)

Hey Fellas,

 

The 1/32 cars are a hoot!  Also I have to thank Smilin' Rays for a bunch of tires, his tires make these cars scoot!

I really lucked out picking up these cars....the most expensive one was $40.00 and I didn't have to fight anyone for them, and overall they run really well!

 

The Jalopy at the top was $18!  It's FAST!  16D motor with a balanced arm in there.  Only concern is the clearance under those screws on the bottom of the chassis.  Still working on that issue so as not to eat up the track.

 

Ferrari Dino is detailed gorgeous, features an Atlas motor and chassis, and scoots.  If I remember right, the green wire delineates an 8-volt arm.

 

The MG, again...whew!  It's a vac-formed body to boot!  Looks like the paint was brushed on rather than sprayed.  *gears turning* Pactra decal sheet?  I was actually disappointed with her in first testing.  The guide shoe doesn't dig in very deep, and the tires rubbed the body.  After some tuning, and repop tires though, I'm very impressed.  Didn't touch the shoe, but that just means you need to drive it round the turns.

 

The Porsche we think is a more recent 1/32 plastic monogram or revell body fitted to a vintage motor/chassis combo (strombecker I think) for posterity-sake.  The Jury is still out on this one, haven't put too much time into or on her yet but will let you know the verdict after more deliberation.  Again, maybe some tweaking of the guide shoe and some fresh rubber on the way in from The Land of Lincoln will garner a positive nod from the 12 peers.

 

You're thoughts are welcomed in our little sub-forum! :)
