I have a passion for making slot car models of cars I was lucky enough to witness in action as a youngster back in the late 60s and 70s.

The first depicts Frank Gardners 1967 Oulton Park Gold Cup British Saloon Championship race winner

The second is another one of Franks mounts; this time his SCA Freight Camaro from 1972

Posted Image

And finally; John Fitzpatricks Broadspeed Anglia, also from the 1967 Oulton Park race.

Thanks for looking.

I was at a slot car race meeting in Wolverhampton over the weekend and Dave was also there with a lot of his cars so I had the opportunity to see these in the flesh.

There was a Falcon in a metallic blue accompanying the Gardner version which I thought was better still.

They are brilliants builds and even better than they appear in these photographs, in my opinion Dave Wisdom is in the top two or three slot car scratchbuilders in the UK, perhaps you could post some more of your cars here please.

David

Yes, more! I also wouldn't mind seeing what is 'under the hood' if its not giving secrets away?
