Hi Balaclava...I tried to keep these somewhat period correct by using either vintage chassis or by building a chassis that "fit" the time period. The Ford "J" car has a much modified vintage Monogram chassis under it.....certainly more potent than the Scaley chassis.

It is similar to the one pictured below.....

Cheers

I would like to make a comment that reflects my admiration for your work, however I can not find enough superlatives.

Wow - just came across this. All these builds are superb - I just picked up a few Strombeckers recently and need to update them a little in terms of appearance and performance. # 1 on the list is a Chaparral 2D, and I am still looking for a Can Am Olds.

Very inspirational work!

It is hard to believe you started with old Strombecker cars. The Lotus 30 catches my eye, but, Sir Stirling's Lotus 19 is a little jewel.

Damn!, they're so nice, but over here we can't those old bodies for anything like sensible money. And even if we can, the postage quoted from the States is outrageous.

Cheers,

I have 3 of these bodies.

The Dino Spyder, Lotus 30 and a Chaparral D. Did you ever throw the calipers on these to see how close they scale out to 1/32. The Porsche seems a little fat for a 718 RS. Looks great though

The finish on these examples is mighty fine.
