  • Ninco Porsche 356A Coupe - re-chassied

    Doing a re-chassis as the aftermarket resin one wasn't performing well. Can use all the bits (BWA rims, slimline motor, Slot It 27t offset crown gear, TSRF guide) on my adjust-o-wheelbase chassis so moving forward.

    Usual chassis bits include,

    3/32" square brass tube - main rails, front axle supports
    1/8" round brass tube - front axle tube
    .064" x 3/4" brass sheet - guide tongue and motor pod cross members
    5/32" round brass tube - guide post for TSRF guide
    .032" x 1/2" brass sheet - side pans
    .032" piano wire - side pans flexi hinges
    1/16" piano wire - guide tongue/front axle support assembly sliders

    Rims are the no longer available BWA wheels but are now replicated by RS Slot Racing with their RSW002 15 x 7 ones. Slimline motor pod's my own 3D printed one with 3/32" x 3/16" Parma oilites fitted and glued in. The TSRF guide's not my usual choice but they would be if more readily available with their deep blade and use of braid with brass tangs.

    All of my small car re-chassied cars have responded really well to this conversion, so I'm hopeful for another good outcome.

      Final stance won't be so slammed but will be low.

          Chassis's running and ready for body mounting.

          Think the motor's a stock Scalextric slimline. Geared it 3:1 with a Slot It 9t pinion and Slot It offset 27t crown. Tires are stock Ninco rubber up front and Paul Gage urethane out back. Sure miss the BWA's even though RS Slot Racing is making replicas. Liked that the originals used M2.5 screws rather than RS's M2's.

          Tri-post body mounted as my custom these days to take advantage of the flexi side pans.

          Stance is good. Lower than stock but not slammed.

          Handling on my twisty track's corners is definitely more planted than before. First time using a TSRF guide and offset crown gear with quiet and smooth results. Will equip future small car builds so.

          BWA wheel inserts need a bit of paint detail and that'll end this build.

          Good outcome.

                That is a good looking chassis under a good looking car! Someone needs to re-release those types of bodies.
                Why doesn't my car run like that?

                  Paint detailed the wheel inserts with Tamiya Flat Aluminum, Lin Gray and Flat Black.

                  Much better definition.

                  Now we're done.

                      Nice job as usual Dan! That is one of my favorite Ninco Liveries and hard to find - unless you don't mind paying an arm and a leg...

                          Add my vote to one of my favorite body styles!!

                          still trying to muster up the courage to scratch build so much appreciate your parts inventories on your builds as I have been copying and saving!!

                            Please explain the flexi side pan part. My eyes are seeing everything soldered together solid...

                              This pic of the same chassis from another small car build might better show the points of soldering of the L-shaped flexi hinges of .032" piano wire.

                              Notice the soldering at the ends of the two L-shaped piano wire hinges on each side pan and not the entire length. As a result when the body is screwed to the chassis, the center section has some vertical flex from the piano wire.

                              I can't explain the physics, but it works!

                              All my cars in 1/32 and 1/24 with these flexi side pans in conjunction with tri-post body mounting work really well on the track.
