            First to arrive will be motors and build parts from SCC and chassis from Professor Motor - orders placed today. This way I can resolve to be more fiscally conservative in the new year.

            Of course that's apt not to make much of a difference because a 3D printer is on my wish list for January. Since I'm torn between a PLA filament printer and a resin printer I might have to get both. Prices are very reasonable right now.

            Creality Ender-3 V2 3D Printer $259.99

              Decals to build this Porsche 908/3. Haven’t decided on the donor car yet, Fly or NSR. But either will work.

                Perhaps a BRM 2002, and maybe a Revoslot F40, but I want a plain red one. I may have to paint a white kit.

                    I'm waiting for a couple of Slot.Its - the IMSA Copenhagen Porsche and the pink and white Nissan R89, and a RevoSlot Castrol Toyota to arrive.

                      A bunch of silicone and/or urethane tires. For all sorts of cars.
                      1/32 scale Artin (stockers, Porsche's and MB's)), Carrera (classic NASCAR), a few different Scalextric cars, some vintage Strombecker cars (Cheetah's, Lotus', Chappy's, etc) ,
                      and 1/24 scale Parma Edge Drag cars.

                      With over 400 cars in all scales it will take some time to even figure out what I need.
                      Many of the 1/43 tires have turned to oily mush, and some of the 1/32's are rock hard. Many others are just too slippery on plastic track so silicone tires would be a huge improvement.
                      I will probably buy 20 sets or so to get started, and then figure out if it's worth trying to make my own once I Know the total need for all cars.
                      Somewhere I have links to a couple of tire making posts, using RTV silicone and some casting material (Aluninite???).

                        Broke down and ordered the Carrera 1/24 Lola's 2 days ago. The blue one is back ordered, but that's OK. They may not be great runners, but the bodies might be really nice to put on a scratch built chassis
