Hmm. It appears that I have gained telepathic powers. :lol: :lol:

That's exactly what crossed my mind when I saw your brass plate chassis.

You could even use a credit card or store loyalty card! (Not my original idea!)

i tried to clear coat the SCX Nascars - in real life, the clear coat is outstanding to the the original SCX body. Looks so much better with a nice layer of clear coat.

last pic - McLaren F1, casted by Pavel, with motorpod chassis - the next project.

You have some excellent trackside figures to go with your cars. They look great.

the truck is nice, Lloyd!
i´m thinking about putting a greenie inside (13D motor, short can, like the artins, but more torque and way better brakes), came from slotcarworld some years ago, a couple of them are still lying in the project box.
styrene chassis, but maybe the cabin is asking for some weight put low, so a brass base plate?

I am thinking along similar lines to you Peter, but have not decided on which motor or wheels yet.

Regards, Lloyd.

Nice project Lloyd. Looking forward to the end result. Not sure if this is any help or not, but a 15mm CBN insert wheel measures 13.57 mm on the flange which with some ti(y)re profiling should scale fairly close to a set of duals for the driving axle.

CarGo has already special tires that will fit nicely in the Buggyra truck.
Due to the price and shipping costs of 1/32nd wheels, i decided to have some truck wheels printed. Only in the planning stage, i´m for a "free shipping" offer from shapeways to order them.
i will have to check dimensions of the motors before the decision, as Tilo already told me that there is nearly no space for a bigger motor than the FF050 (DSlot size) in the rear of the truck ...

Thanks Randy, inserts could be interesting, but if Peter does some suitable printed wheels I may go that route. Still have a bit of time before the proxy.

Regards, Lloyd.
