ID:	79150 What better to do during this time of Covid but build white kits! I have built about 8 or 9 so far and getting better with each one and really enjoying doing them. Here are a couple of Thunderslot kits I recently finished. Lola spyder and a McLaren M6a with a high wing. In the McLaren kit there were parts for the wing. Couldn’t pass that up even though I don’t think they ever ran with one until the later M8? Anyone?
    Both kits are very fictional liveries so please don’t judge too hard.
    Stay safe and keep on slotting!

    While the team M6's did not run with rear mounted wings, (they appeared on the factory M8's) .....a few of their "customer" M6's did run with rear strut mounted wings at the tail end of 1968 and through 1969.

    Here is "Dan", in his M6B "McLeagle" at Riverside in 1969.

      Oh yeah, love it! Those old style numbering and minimal sponsor stickers really get it. As a child I had a HotWheels McLaren M6 that was metallic burgundy, still have it but the axles are all bent up. :/

    'Thunderous' applause! I love tuning, but my patience for white kits is not quite there...somehow they were easier when I built revel and monogram models when I was 10...🤔. Fictional livery or not, great job!!

      Agreed, great job Ragtopman!

    Nice work on your white kits. I particularly like the winged #5.

    Another winged M6A that might be in ThunderSlot’s plans is the Andretti Ford 429’er, though releasing this would require modification of the rear body.

      Being a Gurney fan, a white kit transformed into a McLeagle was a must.

ID:	79195 I didn’t realize there were so many M6A with wings. They look awesome with it imo. Thx for all the comments. Here is a look inside...
      I went with the 12t pinion because I have a couple of long straights on my track, added a bit of weight, trued the stock rears(still need to true fronts) and put on the slightly bigger thunderslot guide and she goes like hell! These are such great cars.
      okay in to my next kit...
