A customer asked me if I would build a replica of a 1969 era Pro racer using a few bits he collected.
I said sure, and he posted a pic of the bits shown below.

What is here is a NOS Lancer body with various wings, a 16D Mura motor, gears, axle, bearings and AJS wheels.

Here is what I came up with.

Motor is can drive mounted and judging from the photos of the com he showed me and the sound it made on the test bench I got the timing right even tho the sticker is upside down.
I did not build the motor.

Next step is the paint.  Customer wanted a replica paint job of something he found in the Slot Car Museum and it looks like this.

Thinking I had free reign on the paint I went ahead and painted the driver.  Got the blue suit right but little else.....

Ah well.... best laid plans and all that....

I did not build the motor.  But the photo supplied by the customer looks to be a THORP 24.

Almost done!  Have to sign the body and chassis.  Then put it in the mail tomorrow because I have a Porsche 906 to finish the paint on.

Enjoy.
