Nice shot for the photoshop there Manic...

Thats the kind that i was hoping that you guys would do, along those lines...



Thanx lavendaar. :)


The competition topic was ironic for me as only 2 weeks prior I had purchased the Alonso McLaren Merc and had pulled my Merc W156 out and couldn't believe the progress in F1 over the last 50 years. When I read the competition topic I didn't even have to think of what I wanted to do, it had to be the evolution of the Silver Arrow in F1. I just had to work out how to do it. :huh2:


BTW, well done on the competition topics, very good.


Cheers Manic

1) Evolution of racing


Panelshop - (straight photo no mods just thought it looked close to a 1:1 scale)

Pontiac Trans Am 1/32 scale being modified into a likeness of a car that ran in the T/A series in the early 70's (Gerry Titus) basic body kit is from David Reinecke , the guards are being flared to make the car look as it did when it raced.

Reinecke Motorsports

Chevelles & Slot Cars!




2) Evolution of racing - well more like my evolution in racing and scratchbuilding , started slot cars as a 13 year old kid in Dads shed scratchbuilding from tin plate now 30 years later I have taken up the hobby again - still like scratchbuilding . These two cars are home made 1/24th scale built in brass and strong enough to race hard and survive the tumbles the white # 32 car actually ended up on the floor. A mate was in the corner taking photos when these two cars met its been sharpened up and cropped


If you can't go around go over - No mods action shot by a mate with his new video camera

here's my 2 cents worth for Evolution of Racing:



1. Red Centre (photoshopped)




2. Scarlet Gauntlet (standard)



...hope you like 'em!
