Both cars are Provence Moulage resin kits.
Lot of resin is removed from inside to reduce weight and to make room for simple brass plate chassis.
Due the body shape crown gear had to be in the center which mean that motor is not centered.
FF030 motors, shafts are shortened and pinions are also shortened to squeeze motor between rear axle and interior.
Micro scalextric gears, Ortmann tires, Vroom driver figures and pfuetze 3D printed slide guide.

Thanks Dan and Peter.

I was surprised myself too how well the decals fitted.
Needed a lot of micro set and sol and time and patience.

Micro scalextric gears are from Barry Johnson, UK.
He has changed his site after I ordered those, this is the new site;
