  1. For what it is worth, I think doing a 'dress rehearsal ' would be prudent before the main show
  2. Welcome to the forum Patel Plenty of knowledge and helpful people on here. I hope you and you kids learn heaps, have lots of great times together and most importantly have fun!
  3. I don't recall the V8S having it before. Next generation of V8S are going to be hybrid capable too. Won't be running any batteries / gear to start with, but leaving to door open if the market goes that way. F1 has ERS to give a bit of a HP boost & DRS that cuts rear wing drag. Formula E has all sorts of 'Mario Kart' style gizmo's...
  4. That's what I was going by when I commented on it's size. Apparently (in that video or on another forum? I can't remember!) the Polar Lights 1/32 plastic kit is slightly over scale and the Scalextric on is either 1/32 or slightly under scale (probably to ensure it fitted in a standard case), so if you line them up side by side the Scalextric one will be shorter. As an aside, I actually stated "slotifying" a Polar lights plastic kit as a Covid project, but it is still sitting in a pile probably 1/4 finished, and most likely will be for quite a while yet!
  5. Must be nice to get a 'thank you'. I would imagine most correspondence would be 'where is my stuff?' , which is out of your hands
  6. On that note, well done to the Black Caps for becoming the #1 ranked test team!
  7. Good to see the Batmobile looks to be a decent size by how it fits in the box. The Scalextric versions of the Batmobile from the Kenton/ Nicholson movie, and the "Tumbler" versions from the later series of movie are quite small to what I expected them to be.
  8. I guess it could be used under a "crashed" car in a track side diorama scene - put stub axles at the back to give a broken rear axle look...
  9. Hmmm, you could be onto something there Rosco. Perhaps heat was applied?
  10. I have no idea of what happened to it, but I do feel sorry for it!
  11. Well, those photos go a long way to show the gulf in our standards Rosco. You are resigned to redoing, where I would be rapt with that result! Back to reality, are you planning on masking and painting the white areas of the car, or will they be decals?
  12. Tamiya do a pink primer, would something like that help with the red coverage??
  13. This is the "repaired" chassis we are going to replace... NOT repaired by me!
  14. Nice split personality look on the middle pic! I assume you use a soft (sponge) block to rub back? What sort of grade wet & dry do you use at this stage?
