Hi, Since joining WASCRG late last year and needing something to take my racing cars to and from Syd's track I picked myself up one of those Aluminium looking cases from Bunnings, added a little foam and used that as my slot car carry box. Must say I have really been enjoying the racing, great bunch of people and beats racing by myself at home all the time, and I'm improving as well, that's always a bonus. As time went on and seeing what the other guys were using I decided to have a crack at making one for myself that would fit a few cars in and look the part as well. I already had some 6mm & 3mm MDF in the shed so about 3 weeks ago decided on what measurements were required and got to work routing, cutting, screwing and gluing the box. Here's what I come up with after a little bit of work. This box is to be painted yet, so still needs a little sanding etc. The box open. Plenty of storage for spares etc in the drawers/doors. And this is what happens when you don't follow your own plans . I accidentally routed the full length of the MDF for the shelving rebates etc so decided just to go and get another 6mm sheet of MDF and have enough material for 3 boxes. Box No 2 The only difference between the 2 boxes is the length as you can see in the next pic. Box No 2 will be able to fit a 1/24 car or 2 if I ever feel the need to get one . Welll that's where I am at the moment, will post some pics of the painted box (boxes) when I'm able to. Cheers Matt
