    I would love to see Slot.it come out with some kind of variant that the car went through over the last couple years of its' racing life. One I see a lot of is the chopped tail with the separate wing. But I imagine there still are many liveries they have planned for the standard body.

    Tamiya rattle can. I want to cut down the width of the wing also as it is wider than the body. I'll just 3D design and print the endplates - much more accurate than me with a knife or scissors and a straight edge.

    Nice job! Primer makes all the difference. Did you airbrush it or rattle can?
    On the rear wing, you could add some cut .5mm styrene to create the end plates.

    But Slot It is not afraid to do a new mold , there are still many crossover parts to make it an economical and profitable venture!

    It would require a completely new mould, which could be used to model quite a few 962s from the last half of their racing lifespan - about 1989 to 1993.

    I would bet this is on the short list for a factory Slot It car especially after seeing your version ,very nice!

    Thanks guys. I may still redo the wing end plates on the 3D printer. And I realised that I put some decals on in the wrong order so may scrape them off and reapply new ones - it's always good to create enough spare decals in just such a case.

    Added some other photos.

    Very early in the modelling stages. I used two part modelling epoxy to fill in the rear intakes. This was done years ago.

    3D printed nose extension JB Welded onto the front. I filled in the gaps with Tamiya putty - first time ever using that. This was about 4 weeks ago.

    I was thinking the same thing.... pretty good work for moderate skills. 3DP is funny that way....all of a sudden you realize how much you can do.......
