Nice! I also like mine, because they were produced at the same time as the real cars were melting the salt...

A wonderful collection Phillipe.

I have posted this slot car somewhere else on TNF but I think it fits this thread.

BABS in race trim rather than LSR but this was built for a Brooklands retro slot car race meeting.

David,
As usual a superb model! Should I send you a genuine, period Champion "517" to recreate the true performance of the beast? :smoking:

Phillipe

Thanks for the extremely generous offer of the Champion 517 but my BABS is a retro slot car rather than vintage spec but I doubt my crude ladder type chassis could handle the power anyway. I've actually fitted a ScaleAuto 30,000rpm black motor so at least the can is the same colour as the Champion.

David,
I was just kidding of course, a "517" would likely pulverize that beautiful car on either take off or landing! :lol:
But if there is anything I can ever do to help with parts or whatever, please do not hesitate to ask. :)
