  1. Very nice, been saying that I need to finish my track for a while now, only 9 - 10 years, lol. Love the bridge/viaduct with the printed brickwork, looks great. Really need to do something similar for my track, instead of the foam blocks that are currently used. Did you find the stone wall online? Matt
  2. Yeah it's a real pity that Scalextric don't seem to make the spares anymore, especially the chassis's. Like you Shayne I have searched the web but are unable to find what I'm after. I have a few XY, XW, Mercury, Javelin brand new bodies that I got for some resin bodies I made. Don't really 'Need' them, it's more me wanting to 'fix' unfinished cars,lol Luckily some spares you can recreate yourself with resin. Matt
  3. Yeah spot on mate. The R1 comes in the Standard Form and the tighter Hairpin R1 used with the C8246 Sideswipe straights as well.
  4. Sorry about the slow reply, I’ll make one up and let you know once it’s done. Cheers Matt
  5. Pretty sure I have a mold here for the BA Falcon wing. Can make it in tan or black resin if you would like one. Computer is playing up at the moment so haven't been on as much lately. Matt
  6. There's one on Ebay from Spain. Not cheap at around $99.33 plus $29.06 postage. Actually there's another for $89.89 plus $28.77 postage Both in the Superslot Box which is the Spanish version of Scalextric, still the same car though. Listed as H3390 Also did hear awhile back that postage from Spain had been suspended to Oz. Matt
  7. Lovely work on the cars Chris. Great job, the paint jobs are awesome.
  8. Had a mate give me a 3D printed chassis. He had printed the chassis, guide and wheels to try out. Here's what I recieved. The chassis itself is printed with a swing arm/pivot point from just behind the motor. The wheels on it in this pic are from the cheap Avant Slot chassis's from a few years back. Not sure how well it will work, can always glue it in place to make the chassis stiffer. Here's the chassis fitted to a Mustang Supercar. The wheels are printed so you can glue your own inserts etc to it to create the hub for the tyre. Since I had some resin inserts I filed them down to fit and created wheels to suit the modern Supercars. (Sorry no pic at hand) I also cut up a resin wing from another car (BA Falcon I think) and made a wing which more resembles the Mustang. This is the prototype before being cast. And yeah, I painted the car up in the 2020 Shell McLaughlin livery. The 3D printed wheels were surprising true, although after I glued on the inserts to create the hub for the wheels I did true them on my tyre razor just to make sure. How's it run? Not sure yet, but will be taking it to Syd's track to give it a run, the 3D printed guide is to deep for my home Scalextric Sport layout. cheers Matt

    Great work on the frame, track, scenery etc.
  10. One has made in Chinalol. Haven't heard this myself either but you never know.
  11. Nice work Shayne. How do they run? Don't suppose you've given them a test run on Dave's track yet?
  12. Nice mate, nothing wrong with a Gulf livery.
  13. Looks great, was a white kit I take it?. I borrowed another racers and used one of these the other week. Might have to get myself one now that a few of the clubs I race at are using them.
  14. Lovely looking track there Jimmy, excellent.
