Excellent track modeling, Capt! I'm too old to remember if that Cox figure was the one I had in my Chaparral...but it sure does look familiar. I converted the driver to be looking down a bit and at his side mirror. Boy...the memories are flooding back big time. THANKS! (I'm really liking this project of yours.)
Thanks Jay, this figure was in alot of the Cox models
That looks seriously good mate. Love this project dude.
Thank you Simon
Great stuff...my kids would love this!
Thanks Cory...kids and slot cars do go together
Cap'n you can make even slot cars look Gothy and mysterious. I never wanted slot cars as they usually meant picking them off the floor judging from the kids that had them. This set up look great.
Thanks Scott...I do have a habit of making things look gritty
Aujourd'hui je me rends au Musée des voitures anciennes à Rochetaillée près de Lyon... Je n'y rencontrerai pas des bolides tels que les vôtres ! Jolie maquette.En revanche la semaine dernière je me trouvais sur un circuit... dans l'Isère...Si je trouve votre mail, je vous envoie quelques photos.Bisous
Thank you Martinealison
Fantastic track modeling, very inspired work, I do like the details!Phil.
Thanks Phil...its a work in progress
Are you weighting your model cars?I find that Scalextrix cars run better (and stay on the track if a little bit of lead is added to the floor pan.Tony
Hello tony...yes the cars are weighted on the underside of the hood directly over the guide
When you are having this much fun it must be hard to stop? Wonderful additions Captain.
Thanks Michael... Next I'm going to put in some starting lights and a timer
Great progress here Captain! Really liking the way your track is looking.
Thanks Rodger...its coming along

Hello David...right now all there I got is 4, Mad Max , 2 Subarus, and a 1949 Talbot Lago grand prix car. There will be more coming.
Richard:Cool model and pics. Man, that Subaru looks like the one my neighbor drives - less the race colors. Best, Dean
Thanks Dean, I drive the black one that is shown on the right side of the blog, a 4 cylinder with close to 300 hp and all wheel drive ...amazing car.
