  1. Yes Max, Dad and I have all flown all forms of modelling together over the years, hes an active member of the Barossa model aircraft club at Rowland flat, he spoke at Dads funeral, a out all sorts of cool topics in their life long friendship
  2. Great additions to the story and maybe theres a connection to this story with the Uniroyal tyre ashtrays also found in dads shed, As for ken Virgin, his son Glen did his apprenticeship at Gmh with Dads brother Graham and they were life long friends until Glens passing last year, I had spent a few afternoons going over Glens quite amazing model aircraft engine and model car collection only a few months before, he was also a great friend of motorcycle guru Jerry Kooistra who gave me the unfinished Piper Cub project I finished last year, which only happened then because Glen gave me a kick in the pants and said when are you going to get it done, and so that day I came home and got into it after it had sat waiting for me for a few years heres a link to its second flight
  3. Hopefully I've worked out how post images here
  4. In going through my Dads gear over this last few weeks I've discovered a trophy from '66 that is showing as having been awarded to Team Scott of Road Runners and is for The Uniroyal Lemans race, does anyone know more about this particular event? I'd love to know more about it like where it was held and what sort of race or meeting it was, I've taken pictures ofvthe trophy but csnt work out how to share them here Regards Alexis
  5. Hi Pete, Dad and I used to enjoy your visits into Mac'ùs models back in the 90s too, if anyone would like the link to his funeral service I can post that here, but only if there are people would like to see it, there was a lot of great stories from many people he came in contact with over his lifetime, I have the task of going through his shed etc and sorting out the stuff Mum doesnt need to keep around, during this last week I came across another trophy for slot racing in the 60s, it's the Uniroyal cup from '66 To my Knowledge Max Newcombe, Bill Hamley Clark and Craig Patterson are now the survivors of Team Scott of Road Runners club Regard Alexis
  6. Thanks for the kind words and condolences Alan, I used to love going to both AIR and Tailem Bend Rally cross with dad, you might also remember Dad organised another model flyer to do a lunch time helicopter demo and it crashed into grandstand full of people while dad was trying to concentrate the modelling action, luckily nobody was hurt, my son Hamish his grandson, has gone on to be an Australian champion and internationally know Rc heli pilot, something Dad was extremely proud of.
  7. Sadly my father Murray Scott passed away peacefully Monday morning on his 80th birthday at Lourdes valley in care, I know there are members here who knew him and I'm now trying to compile a list of significant results from his time racing, so far we have the Duncan 200 in 65, Third in the 68 Brabham and I see he won the Lincoln park f1 race in 67, if anyone is able to fill in more details we his family would be very appreciative, Kind regards Alexis Scott
  8. Sadly I now need to inform the group Dad Passed away peacefully at Lourdes valley on his 80th Birthday
  9. I'd assume from this post that you knew my Father Murray Scott, hes not well currently and I was talking with him today about the good old days for him and slot cars is one of the passions we have both shared over the years although he did most of his before I came along and I did mine at Redline in the late 80s early 90s, if you have anything cool to fill me in on his history at Sheltons I'd love to hear it, Regards Alexis Scott
