  1. 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
  2. Lovely work on the cars Chris. Great job, the paint jobs are awesome.
  3. 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.
  5. One has made in Chinalol. Haven't heard this myself either but you never know.
  6. Nice work Shayne. How do they run? Don't suppose you've given them a test run on Dave's track yet?
  7. Nice mate, nothing wrong with a Gulf livery.
  8. 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.
  9. Lovely looking track there Jimmy, excellent.
  10. A couple of pics of some completed cars. Got some of the tyre decals off Patto's just to finish them off. Currently working on a Castrol Nissan. Would really like to try Patto's waterslide decals but I'm a bit nervous when it comes to giving them a coat of clear. Tried them a couple of times and have had the waterslide decals 'crinkle' from the clear coat. I know there's a few what could be used, might get some and try my luck cheers Matt
  11. Wow, you could make plenty for that price, and some with a bit of time and effort. But I suppose there are people who don't think they have the skills either, but you never know if you never try.
  12. Hi Mark, Thanks mate, and welcome to Auslot. Love the Aussie muscle cars myself, Scalextric have released quite a few over the last few years now. What with the XY,XW,XB,XC Falcons and the A9X and L34 Toranas, there's plenty to choose from, and of course the Supercars which seem to be selling for silly prices at the moment. That is if you can get your hands on them, although they can still be found and quite cheap too. I actually like the build process from start to finish, worked out that it's better to be patient than to rush. cheers Matt
  13. Here's another Nissan I've painted up, this time done in the Norton Livery of Caruso. Stuffed this paint job up a couple of times, left it alone, sanded, repainted, added the decals and gave it a clear coat. Amazing how much better the car looks when you give the paint time to dry, lol. Matt
  14. That's the one, lol, does it come in black. Nice work Shane, have you give it a run yet?
  15. Cheers for the input fellas. I did find a motor on Ebay that will fit the dimensions of the motor mount holes but they are not in stock from all sellers, long can 22150 RPM 12V. Might have to see if I can find myself some adapters,spacers to use but I do believe Shane has printed a chassis that suits the Nissan. Matt
  16. Hi DM, I usually use the Fiddly Bits grey primer from Bunnings but since doing the Nissan 3D printed body I have started using the Rustoleum Primer/Putty all in one. It was hard to find the first can but since then Autobahn has been stocking it in the larger spray cans at $12.99. After the usual cleaning of the resin body I've been giving them a coat with the Rustoleum Primer/Putty, sanding back and then applying another coat. Great for filling any small holes etc and still works fine with the Squirts top coat paints I've been using. Great tip on taking pics as you go, sure does show up any holes etc before doing the top coats. cheers Matt
  17. Very nice again, I'll definately PM you regarding a few of the files, if not all of them. lol cheers Matt
  18. Cheers Nimrod, I might just do that. Have you been building/painting any up yourself?.
  19. I have a 3D printed chassis that came with the Nissan 3D printed body. I have tried the various motors I have at home here but none will fit. Here's a few pics of the chassis to see if someone here would know what type of motor I'm after. Seems to be the length of a long can motor except the hole nearest the rear axle is different. Any help is much appreciated. cheers Matt
  20. I've seen the Red tinge quite a few times on the used MJK's I leave on my track. They're probably a few years old but seem to do the red tinge then nigh on melt. I've had a brand spanka Carrera Audi R8 new in the box with a pool of goo under the wheel where the tyre used to be. only time I've seen this. Usually when storing cars I add one of those rubber washers from some roofing tech screws under the usual plastic washer to lift the car that little bit more off the base.
  21. Well done fellas, a couple of great fugly/cool cars.
  22. Unfortunately mine won't be ready for the end of the month as well, busy with work and a few other projects. Great work by those who have finished though, probably finish mine with a similar theme.
