  • Cunningham C-4RK [Update 11/23]

    This is a car I have been wanting to build for some time. I found the body on Ebay. I had to use a razor saw and my knife to remove the front and rear windows carefully to save them for masters to use on my vacuum form machine. The body needed a lot of clean up but is looking good. I am going to use a Slot It chassis with some mods. More to come!

    Love the Cunninghams. Looks like it will be a great build. Well done saving the glass cut outs - I am impressed with your patience.

      Yes, beautiful car and job on the window cut outs, great re-use of the pieces for vacuum forming clear pieces!

        Another really interesting car! Looking forward to seeing what it looks like when you get it built out.

              Thanks for looking! I have the body post mounted and it is heading to the paint booth soon.

                A few updates on my progress. I painted the body with some Tamiya white. I masked off the stripes and brush painted them. Not perfect but they look good to me! I am making my own wheel inserts out of sheet plastic and cutting them out with a compass. The chassis is coming along and I have installed a Slot Car Corner "Tuna" motor.

                  Looks pretty good to me. Once the car is running, it's always harder for me to finish it. Git 'er dun.

                    Moving along. I have the wheel inserts done. A little one dimensional, but they look the part. Interior is finished. I had finished it up and promptly spilled a bottle of flesh colored paint all over the interior! Luckily it was water based paint and I brought it over to the sink and rinsed it off. I also made the side windows. Thanks for looking!
