Yes - very nice, but what I'm really waiting for is the Schnitzer Toyota Celica Grp 5 in blue and white Rodenstock.....


Cheers,

 

Tony.

 

There's only two questions:

 

1. What direction do you go

2. What's the Lap Record?

would the long tail affect the handling?

 

I doubt it. The Sideways Porsche Moby Dick has a really long tail, but it weighs so little it is a great little runner

The Celica is scheduled for September, but messaging with Chris S. a few minutes back, I get the impression he is still not 100% certain it will roll out the doors on time.

That's the one - would make a great pair for me with my Sideways #52 Mampe Zakspeed Capri.....

 

I made both of those as Tamiya 1/24 ( ? ) static plastic kits too many moons ago......

 

I know there's talk of the Red /White Rodenstock Celica - but it's the blue one above I'll have, thanks....


Cheers,

 

Tony.

Thought folks might like a sneak preview of what Racer-Sideways will be rushing through the factory in December

Should make it our way in January

Running a bit late - but apparently the boat with the box with the boxes inside with the pretty little boxes of cars inside them, is docking in France this week.

The dock workers there are apparently performing some kind of slow motion dance to protest their wages and holidays being slightly lower than those

of Monsiour Macron, so it is expected in the Sideways warehouse week three of March for a quick reversal of direction and back out the door to distributors.

I know for sure there will be at least one of that Skyline on our local club tracks the week after it is available.

First time I've seen one, and I thought the Ferrari 512BB was a beast....The De Tomaso is an absolutely brilliant looking Grp 5. Hope a slot car co picks it up soon
