  • CanAm in 32

    On the Shadow thread, someone asked about scale.

    These are the cars I have finished, with a Strombecker McKee (red car on the left) and a Monogram T70 for comparison.
    You can see these are NOT huge like the Vanquish cars, they are actually pretty decent.

    This shows how short and small the Lola T260 really is. Mine runs on a Slot.it Ferrari 312PB chassis, so it's small.

    This why I love my printer!

      Yes, the Strombecker bodies are pretty close. In reality, the 917 is actually a tiny car....the old SCX version was close-ish but wheels and tires made it tall. The Fly cars are too big, but they are pretty and look great together.

      NSRs are typically wide and long, relatively speaking (the P68 is both). Many CanAm cars scale to about 55-57mm wide.
