  1. The XD had it's first hit out tonight and was pretty happy how she went. Came through unscathed with a win by a couple of laps. Was home track advantage though. Good to see something different than a Coupe / Hardtop
  2. Thanks lads for getting through your work so quick, and the Pizza, the chicken the fudge etc... Results, first up ATCC Scaley F1 GT3 Rossco caught in an AMG sandwich
  3. Hey team, fyi been called into a late work meeting @8pm so may leave you to see yourselves out if that's ok. In saying that with 2min heats if we start on time we should get through it. Will aim to kick off at 6:30pm on the dot cheers
  4. These look amazing Ross - skillful masking!
  5. Found this Youtube clip which is quite a laugh. Wish I'd painted the door cards beige now.
  6. Thanks Phil. Yep 3D bodies do take a bit of effort to get presentable. This one wasn't so bad as it had many big flat areas. A little bit of sand /fill /sand was needed. I also used a filler + primer on this one which I think helped. Can't really say how many hours as it was creative / enjoyable time working with something you'd made. Sanding and fitting the window bucks took longer as I'd never done that before.
  7. Got some shed time this weekend so decals on. Took the quick & easy path with the peel & stick. I find these good for racing with a car that gets handled a lot.
  8. Racing at my place this week Gates open at 6 Week 5 1 Australian Touring Cars 2 Scalextric F1 3 GT3
  9. Thanks guys. Really appreciate the feedback. Vinno the colour is Tamiya Brilliant Blue TS-44. And Mark yep have a can of TS-35 Park Green for the Greens Tuf build. The chassis is a mash up of one I found on Thingiverse with a pod I drew up blended in. We run this class non podded. Wheel base and track is very similar to the Scaley XB.
  10. Thanks for hosting us Bings! Lot's of carnage at the Bing ring as usual & running the legends again was fun. Maybe a permanent swap out for Nascar in the rotation? - discuss
  11. Hi all During last our last lockdown, which thankfully didn't last too long, I decided to purchase some 3D files. This is my first attempt at a mostly self made slotcar - one of my goals for my 3D printer. Body was printed on the smallest wall thickness. It lost a little detail but I plan to race this in our Aussie Touring Car class so not too bothered with how pretty it is. Decals have arrived from Pattos place so will add these when I get some time. Have gone for peel & stick as I find them excellent to work with and very hardy for door to door rubbing. Body, chassis, guide & driver 3D printed in PLA+ on a Creality Ender 5 Wheel inserts are Resin printed from Slotcar Innovations https://www.facebook.com/Slot-Car-Innovations-101977758704509 Interior & windows vac formed. (thanks to Munter for his help) Some pics of the journey Cheers
  12. Wow - looks like you have your printer dialed in nicely! Great idea re upscaling HO items - I must widen my searches

  14. They look awesome Mike. Well done!!
  15. Thanks Mark - always love racing on Oakland & the Mini's were cool!
  16. Our Pepper is very weird. She doesn't mind water. She's been in and out 2-3 times today and I've had to towel her off. Often catch her drinking out of the pool with front paws on top step of ladder - underwater....
  17. Love them Gazza! Especially that XD. Had a similar thought but that was to use a 32 Ford, ....didn't think about other body styles...
  18. Smaller group but still a cool night on Upham Downs... Many Bing sandwiches were consumed.... & well done Jak for his first full meet here. He learnt the squeeze very quickly BTCC Muscle Cars 65-80 Sports Cheers guys
