    Hi Phil Thanks for the reply. I read what he previously wrote. Did you send him a couple later than when he replied? I am doing 2 x L34's and the motors are the only thing missing. I have been looking for a couple of C8301 motors and the places I have contacted seem to be sold out. So I am on the look out for two.
  4. @rosco01the house I am looking at buying has a garage in the middle of the house so that's the room for the hobbies.
  5. @rosco01I have a compressor for 1:1 painting as well as for running pneumatic tools. Real cars and bikes (had and did up a lot of Harley's, European and Japanese bikes) have been a lifelong passion for as long as I can remember; particularly muscle cars. Currently I have a 1978 Camaro that is what I call a mean looking beast; a bit like an old dog that's been in many a scrap; plenty of scars but mean looking. Next year I will re-paint it plus the plan is to start on another old girl. The plan is that we will be moving to the mid-north coast of NSW early next year. The place we are trying to buy has the garage away from the planned slot car / hobby room which will be in the house. So i need an air compressor that's going to play nicely inside the house :).
  6. @wobble Mate I love the way Kiwi's think outside of the square. NB: I will be in NZ quite a bit with work once the restrictions are off. Your beautiful city is one I will be visiting frequently. So I'd love to catch up with a few of the Kiwi enthusiasts over the time.
  7. Thanks for this my airbrush is an old Paasche kit that I bought secondhand a few months ago. An old friend prime in the late 70's was An amazing airbrush artist who used to blow me away with his work. I am going to buy an airbrush compressor in the next few weeks to save buying compressed air.
  8. @rosco01 thanks for the reply. Looking forward to the painting. I have an airbrush at home but have not air brushed models before as I have hand painted all of them so I am looking forward to this stage of your build. Do you clear the entire car once you apply the decals. Also with the Tamiya paint I hand painted from the pot. Do you think it down?
  9. @rosco01This morning I have read the entire thread with great interest. Thanks for the motivation this thread has given me. I have ordered an LJ body kit and so the journey will begin. Out of curiosity what plastic do you use for windows?
  10. Until recently the company company I worked for had a V8 supercar that Brad Jones managed. For the last 5 year (not including this year) I was at all the events. Over the years I have met a lot of the old warriors so I might have see if I can get it signed. I have a real 1978 Camaro and am going to drop the glove box off the Brad Jones so he can get Kevin Bartlett to sign it for me.
  11. I never liked them in their day because of the Holden ford thing but now I absolutely love them.
  12. Yes please. Will be placing my order today. It will definitely not be a shelf queen.

    Cheers for this. I picked up a couple of Torana bodies that I want to put stock chassis under. The Scalextric FF motors from suppliers are around $45-$50 so I thought these motors I have seen online might be the go. I did notice some of these motors are used in a heap of different things. That's why I was wondering what is the difference was between the Scalextric and other applications.

    Old thread but here we go. What did these motors perform like. I was looking today at some and I thought they might be worth giving a go?
  16. @terry He was supposed to be amazing in that sport possibly the best in Australia at that time.
  17. @Vinno I never knew he was a champion speedway driver.
  18. Very sad news which I only found out today. Thanks for the memories.
  19. You're a legend Matt. Thanks very much.
  20. @mattcrackers that would be fantastic. Black resin would be great. Let me know how much including postage. Now to chase down a Torana grille and bumper/spoiler.
