  1. For some reason I've had these cars for way too long to not have done this before now, maybe, as my racing time is slipping away I seem to have more time to get these little projects done. Each car has its own story, something we could all relate to so finally all of the Lotus projects are done............... 1/24 scale Tamiya lotus 40 I got this car from a fellow Newcastle slot guy who was having a few issues with his track and I volunteered my services to see if we could fix the track,it happened to be on surely the hottest summer day just before Christmas around 2008, he just said to me during the day "you might be interested in this crap,my uncle gave it to me and I have no interest in these bits" Amongst all the assorted mess was this beauty, body was badly knocked about( sorry no pics) but most of it was there, I think the actual time taken for me has been about 3 months or so, the car is 99% original,( I had to get a repro screen.) Monogram Lotus 33 Tamiya bodied Lotus 30 ( Slotit Alfa 33 chassis) Monograms F1 Lotus 33 Ferrari 158 1/32 Tamiya bodied Lotus 30
  2. What clear coat are you thinking of using?
  3. very neat track Roscoe, Terry
  4. I should have done this before now but you know how it is.... often thinking "I'll use that one day" and I haven't, so time to move these on, Just a brief description on what we have; The Good Year bridge can be used to span a 3 lane tracks (my old track was), has rarely been out of its box. The spectators are as displayed 21 characters all up, these ,I believe, are from Scalextric. The "grandstand" is new old stock, bought way back from Roland at SlotCar Shop in Sydney, still has its original bag and is as shown. Not including postage, I'm looking for anything over $100 which I reckon is a very fair price for all this lot, I will have to calculate postage costs but I'm thinking anywhere in Australia should be around $15, but I can only confirm that once you give me your postcode, I can post overseas no problems. Just to get this lot moving I'll pay for postage within Australia, Thanks for any interest please contact me through Auslot bump Terry
  5. Thanks for those kind words, I've got a lot of pleasure out of these recent builds, especially the Elfin and now the Lola, Since selling my track I've been getting my slot fix through building these little cars and as I cannot track test these cars I will not be running them in the upcoming Tasman series, mores the pity but priorities have got in the way and that is my main focus now. I still check out the proxy scenes and look on with interest, but for now I won't be entering. Good luck with your builds and I hope to see your cars as they progress
  6. Finally got the Lola finished, fairly happy with the overall look of the car, although the cold weather here isn't making it any easier, I guess nimble fingers are no longer , along with other parts of my body! anyway hope you like
  7. I've made some progress........... Still some work to be done but I'm quite pleased with the general "stance" of the car I'm starting to gather a pretty fair collection of "Tasman" cars, and although this car, in this setup, did not run as shown, and I don't think it came to race down here in the Tasman series, maybe before the Tasman series started. Not to worry Maybe its time for another Brabham
  8. Another scratch build, this time the lola Mk 4 as raced by John Surtees around 1962, a very small car and probably one of the trickier cars to do. Build has gone quite well without too many dramas, the body was supplied by John Jones from the U.K I probably got this car about 11 years back and i put it away into the too hard cupboard, a fibreglass body, which I think is a first for me. All done now apart from paint and detailing.
  9. Again I'm putting this out there to see if anyone may be able to point me in the right direction. I'm presently undergoing a rebuild on a 1/24 monogram Ford GT roadster, the old car is pretty much complete but I need front and rear tyres, can anyone help? I'm thinking that the tyres would be similar in size to the 1/24 scale cox cars, I also have a 1/24 Tamiya Lotus 30 which will also need tyres so hopefully they will all come from the same supplier, I would prefer urethane or rubber tyres, not sponge. Thanks for any help Terry
  10. I think we would all agree that we lost Garrie Cooper way too early, every bit as innovative as Brabham.
  11. Can I apologise for being off topic here. I too have a HQ Monaro, but my body does not have any clear bits (windows) what are you using for windows?
  12. Thanks for those kind words, circumstances are such that I'm more or less unable to race with the boys and although I miss that aspect of our hobby the upside is that I now make time to get those projects done and those cars that have been hidden away are now getting done, I'm not sure about the Tasman series as my track is gone, and although I fully intend to get another I still haven't got anywhere to practice and sort out those little things that you need to do
  13. Well, its been about 6 months since this post was started and finally the Elfin is finished, For now it will sit on the shelf with my other scratch build Tasman cars, one day............. I sort of based this car on the Alfredo Costanzo car, I only had a black and white pic to go by, but I thought red was the obvious colour for a Costanzo car, being of Italian heritage and all
