The Aloha 917 has amazing paint! And the DW21 Gt-40 has the coolest stripes and I'm very anxious to see the J Ford run.

Hmmmm.... Looks like the post office wasn't kind to the window(s?) on the Mk I.

Good to see them in mostly one piece though.

Thanks Dariusz, I'll be on the lookout for it.

I have an idea for traction enhancement; it's called ChemLawn. You don't mind if I try it out on your tires, do you...............? :o :lol:

Two more arrivals today; both from South Africa.

The first is Richard's car (slotting since 1963); although it was mailed by Gavin (GMSEA), so I'm not really sure whose car it is................ It's #63 though, which is a familiar number to all of us. On a custom chassis - it looks fast!

The second is Clive's car (clivearmstrong). This is a beautiful little Ford Mirage, whose body started life as a block of carving wood! This one will definitely be a strong candidate for the "pretty girl at the party" award.

Terrific job, Clive! We're proud to have your car on our grid for this series.

Thought the box might be confusing !!!!!! Just used one Gavins that was lying around , hope he wasn't too attached to it.

Thanx Allan, she was a lot of fun to make. Traction is a slight worry, but as long as every driver enjoys the ride...then I'm happy!!! It is really a biggie for me to join this proxy, thank you!

Cheers

Mailed my car along with Yebo's on Monday Express Post. Should be there Thursday. I don't have any pictures of Lez's car but I attached pictures of mine.

Long story short I started a new car build on Thursday as my previous car the MK4 I just could not get it to run very well so I said heck with this and walked over to my cabinet and grabbed a new Slot.it Gulf GT40. :scared-eek: I attached #10 self adhesive decals over the original livery and I was off to the workbench!

Slot.it GT40 MK1
Motor - stock slot.it orange
Chassis - stock slot.it
Pod - stock sidewinder
Pinion - stock 11 tooth
Spur - changed to 34 tooth
Rear tires - changed to Yellow Dog 1403
Rear hubs - stock 15x8
Front tires - stock front rubber (coated / trued with CA)
Front hubs - changed to slot.it 15x8
Interior - stock

Paul, I'll be on the lookout for your 908.

Rob (cygracer), that GT-40 looks fast just sitting on the set-up block. I'm sure it will run well, as will Ron's (Beast Lee) and Tom's.... Thanks for sharing your build specs, Rob.
