Another Torana

Recommended Posts

Started on the GTR Torana , this is how its coming along , shouldn't be too long before its ready to mold and make . Don't judge it too harsh yet its only in its whitey underpants theres a lot of measuring / sanding and gluing to go yet. The bonnet bulge looks off centre in the photos but its not really its not

 

Im going a little over scale as its a skinny thing but it will still be a narrow body . should look Ok along side the early Cortinas and Escorts . It will most likely suit a chassis with an inline mounted motor when its finished

The MJK boys showed me some new alloy rims last Friday night they are 13mm diameter and 8mm wide they use a Scalextric mini tyre on the rear (MJK make a tyre) 8mm wide at a guess and a even smaller tyre on the front rims 5-6 mm wide I think ? They are getting tooled up to make inserts for there rims as well. More goodies = more choice .

The new MJK rims are more to scale for a Torana , also Pattos bpw131009g and bpw130609g alloy rims suit the smaller wheel arches on the Torana.
