I was gifted a NOS 1/32 Strombecker body of the supercool, but ultimately unsuccessful, Chaparral 2H - the radical Jim Hall design that campaigned in the Can Am series in the mid 60's 

It sits on a truncated Pioneer chassis now and it's a sweet runner that corners surprisingly well - given the length of this boat and its narrow wheel track. The inserts come from Bingo - our in-club 3D printer genius. Each of those wire spokes is less than 0.3mm wide. Unreal. 

Perhaps more importantly, I may have finally made a slot car that The Great Munter may approve of. Maybe? Maybe not

Thanks for looking.

That's a lot of Chaparral info there, Gazza. I have another 2H body on the way and the high wing variant will be materialising soon.

Nice build I have a couple of those bodies here somewhere!

Started to cut one up to try and make it look more like it should and gave up, and started to curve from scratch,must finish it, but the thing is so narrow it will never make a great slotcar.

Nice job on that unusual subject.

Bingo’s inserts are a classy touch.

A big plus is that it is digital ready!

Nice work and an interesting choice of chassis.

Can Am cars are one of my top 3 classes. I only have a couple of Chaparrals I must add some more.

cheers

I have another Strombecker 2h body on the way and I have a 1/24 sprint car wing in the parts box that will help me get here, hopefully.

Should not be too hard to scratch built the wing. This car is done in 1/24 scale.
