I've bought a cheap, non running, Scalextric Mini Cooper with the idea of doing the repairs to the wiring and using the chassis in the resin Mini Van.

Car updates
The Renault 11 has had some of the glazing fitted, the rear and side windows, but asa the vac moulding was not a good fit I have had to cut the windows from the moulding and apply separately. I have also started to do the black rubber painting on the body.

Two arrivals today, first a MRRC McLaren M23 body kit, this comers with the red paint already applied to the main body and ther airbox.



Second arrival is a 1/32nd scale resin Austin Mini Van which will need some internal parts removing before it can be converted to a slot car.

Car updates
Finished doing the detail painting on the Airfix Clubman Special Eagle Weslake, including the drivers head and overalls. Decals have been applied to represent the car with which Dan Gurney won the 1967 Belgian Grand Prix at Spa-Francorchamps, the car's first and only F1 win.

Car updates
Added the chrome parts and did some detail painting on the Airfix Clubman Special Eagle Weslake body and drivers head. Also done some work cleaning up the motor in the Clubman Special Chassis, which as it happens, although bought separately sometime ago, has the correct inserts for the Eagle.



The Renault 11 has now had it silver topcoat.

Car updates
Sprayed the Arii VW Beetle body using a Aston Martin Verde British Racing Green, from a colour matched spray can. It's an interesting colour as it changes with the light from very bark, almost black, to a nice BR Green.



Also primed the resin Renault 11 body with black primer ready to have a silver topcoat.



While the airbrush was out I have also primed all the parts for the 1/20th scale Tamiya Lotus 25 using Vallejo grey and black primer.

Car updates
Gave the Alpine chassis a test run in the body and a problem occurred, because I'm hoping to fit the engine in the model and have the bonnet opening, as per the kit, the point where the front body post is fitting is quite weak and it gave way. To help strengthen this area before refitting the post I have had to fit some interior parts to the car body, not what I really wanted to do yet. Will leave it all for a few days to fully set before doing anymore testing.
