Here is some more of my old junk.

 

This one was built around a Pittman DC 196. The chassis is made from 1/32nd brass strip. The wheels are the

machined aluminim Dynamics. The body is probably Du-Bro, and is the Ferrari F-1.

the rears are cut down Pro-Tracks. The motor is a K&B Bobcat 36D. The body a is Du-Bro Cobra.

Dave, do you recall what you might have used foir paint on some of these bodies? You did a good job photographing your work, especially the chassis.

Paint on the bodies that I used to replace the originals is Model Master lacquer if the body is butyrate, Pactra R/C

paint on the lexan bodies. Original bodies were painted with Pactra rattle cans or with a Badger airbrush. Some

were actually brush painted on the inside, partly why they started using clear bodies. The brush stokes tend to

not show.

I've seen some great brush jobs, some even painted on the outside of hard bodies, but I never had the touch. When i started painting slot car bodies, I bought a Binks airbrush to use in 1970.
