1/24 Scale Legends Series Starts In Cape Town, Sa.

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

 

The Cambridge Club in Cape Town held it's first 1/24 LEGENDS series Hard Body Class Series last night, and the turnout was superb. Using the Vac Formed Sportscar Class as a stepping Stone up into the "open" class, we decided to go the Group C Le Mans cars as they're awesome looking cars, they are low and wide, and present an awesome handling Hard Body Car to race in an Open Class, similarly to what our International friends race in Europe and the USA/Canada.

In 2009, We'll again be putting together an Easter Festival at the Ecurie Club in Durban, which will see the usual Classic Sportscars on Plafit 1300 U chassis, and the Open Class with Hard Body cars for a SA/International event. Jan we hope to see you there once again if possible, and perhaps you can bend Simon and a few other guys' arms to join you?? :)

 

Cheers for now

 

Regards

 

Big Al

Stargate,

 

no these aren't vac-formed. Like the guys down there, we started into 1/24 using vac formed bodies of the 60's and 70's classic sportscars, and have now just started the Open class, which is 80's based Group C Sportscars, but these care hard body, either commercially available plastic kits from Tamiya or Revell, or home made Laminated fibreglass and resin bodies, with a Min running weight of 180 grams for the car, and 60 grams for the bodies with bodymounts, to help keep things even and balanced.

These have been laminated and built with epoxy resin and matting, I have a new tutorial on the Slotcars.co.za website on building the Nissan R89 C from beginning to end with pictures for you to see the process.
