There is a proxy for cars based on a series of books by Burt Levy.

This proxy can be followed on SCI forum,it begins early 2011.

The cars are all pre 55.

This is my entry using a Lindberg XK120 kitset.

That is quite stunning John, the finish is great and I am impressed by the chassis. I have been wrestling with a chassis design for my first attempt at a brass chassis - I think I might borrow yours :)

 

Did you make the motor mount yourself? If not could you et me know where you got it or could you tell me the thickness of the brass please?

 

cheers

Absolutely lovely. The simple colour enhances the simple lines. Car's not bad either. :)


Computers. They'll never catch on.

but why isn't it right hand drive?

Yes, well, um?

Actually the kit came like that and I never gave it a thought....it is of course the US export model ahem cough cough wink wink.

 

Thanks Gazza, Mac ,Ember, DM and the manitouguy for the compliments.

The slotit crown and the Scaleauto pinion work really smoothly together giving a smooth transmission of power.

John, great work. Its not really my type of car but damn thats sweet. I keep seeing similar design chassis with all your cars you have been building lately. It looks like a great design. What motor did you use? Dosn't look like a bwa. Great job all round


Thanks

Greg

Thanks Greg

The motor is a Scaleauto slimcan.SC-017

This is the 20K rpm model as specified for the event.

These motors have brushes unlike some other slimline motors....do you want to know how I know?

 

I bought two from Pendles(fast service) and fitted one....it ran well,then smoked up bigtime.

I can only guess I had over oiled the bearings and the comm gummed up and melted.

Check out that black blodge in the pic !!
