Recieved this 1/24th scale Ford Capri Mk1. The car runs but doesn't want to stay in the slot, it's also very heavy with all the lead that has been added to the chassis.

Car updates
The Audi Quattro now has it's decals and clear coat applied and I've added most of the extra bits to the body. I've also made up the interior plate but as this car is for racing and the motor seems very tight to the interior plate I may well fit a vac-form interior. I've also made up the chassis and fitted a Flat 6RS motor with Slot.It gears, PSR wheels and NSR tyres. Looking like the guide may be a bit of a problem as the Team Slot guide has a spring around the post which means most of the guide holder is bigger than a standard guide stem.

Car updates
Having decided the weather wasn't that bad today I decided to paint the Team Slot Audi Quattro body and while I had the primer out thought I might as well paint the resin Alfa 105.

The Quattro primed nicely,


and took it's orange topcoat with no problems.

I haven't painted that many resin bodies and all that I have I've painted with rattle cans so this would be my first with the airbrush and Zero Paints. I don't know if I didn't wash the body properly, if it's the resin or the paint but I had a few problems.

Looks like I will need to do some sanding before I can even think about the topcoat.

Latest arrivals
Received 2 deliveries today, mostly vintage bits.

First up the vintage cars starting with this original release of the Airfix Mercedes 1937 with plain white wheels, it seems to be in quite good condition with just a mirror missing and a crack in the floor pan under the motor


With this came a Riko R650 Ford GT Mk IV built up kit which again looks to be in very good condition with very little use although it will need so new rear tyres.


On to the second package and this Alfa Guilietta 105 resin body kit with vac-formed windows and interior, I think this is the Pendle's kit.


With this came 2 vintage model kits, a Cooper-Ford, "suitable for slot racing", by Palmer Plastics Inc, boxed but minus the instructions but with the small number of parts I can't see that being a problem.


The final item is a BugattI Grand Prix Race Car by Pyro, again boxed but with no instructions. This again doesn't appear to have that many parts so construction should fairly obvious.

Received 2 items today, in the order they were purchased...

A 1/43rd scale Ford Lotus Cortina Mk1 model kit and comes with decals for the 1964 Tour de France. The model is based on the true early model Lotus Cortina and includes etched metal parts and looks very nice.



The second item is a second-hand NSR Porsche 911 GT3 RS (997).

Car updates
The Lotus 49 ran fine at the club tonight and is quite fast but the gearing is right, at least for me, and the rear end of the car was very lively. I think I will enlarge the gear opening in the chassis and go back to a 28T crown gear.

The Ninco XK120, even though only on temporary wheels, ran quite well and should handle a lot better once the I have ordered some new wheels for it. The rear wheels are ok but I had to use the original Ninco front wheels and axle which had quite a bit of free play.

Car updates
I have changed the crown gear on the Lotus 49 back to a 27T and on my home track it now appears to be running ok, will see what happens at the club tomorrow

The Ninco BRG Jaguar XK120 has now been fitted with an Amato 3D printed chassis and a Scaleauto 25K S-can Tech 2 motor. As the XK120 is front engine and has a deep interior this has now been removed and will be replaced with a flat vac-formed drivers tray.
