A friend of mine is making a resin body of a BT19 for a slot car that he is producing. I need as many pictures as are available. Also dimensions of the body width and length. Pictures of the rear cowling and cockpit would also be great.

Dennis
which year, 1966 or 1967? The BT19's appear to differ quite considerably in the two seasons.

Here are 3 photos that I hope will help. If you drop me a mail or PM with your e-mail address I'll send you more.

Thanks Rob,

The last pic looks like a BT20. I undrstand that the BT19 is at Donington. Any one live by there that can sneak a couple of measurements? I need body width and length.

Perhaps you could also use GPL cars and GPL modelers stuff to take the right measures. They are a little bit flattened than the photographs and this could probably help in making the slotcar. I hope this is not nonsense...

It's not nonsense at all but what we're trying to do is make the 1/32 car as scale as possible. These are not your garden-variety slot cars as you can see from this example:

Wouldn't swear it on a stack of Bibles, but I think the Donington BT19 went to live in Australia about 20 years ago

Thanks Rob I thought the intakes looked different and by that time the BT20 was also used.

David 20 years ago? Why it seemed like only yesterday that was there! Where does the time go my friends. :lol:

Had you looked at "CARS IN PROFILE" N°3 F -Repco-Brabhams by Doug Nye. Interesting pictures and scaled profiles in it.

According to a book called "Racing Cars":

Wheelbase: 2337mm (92in)
Front Track: 1359mm (53.5in)
Rear Track: 1422mm (56in)

I'm not sure how accurate these are.

That's a good shot of the little duck tail in the back.
