  • Corvette Daytona Prototype?

    My next project on the chopping block is trying to make my version of a Corvette Daytona Prototype. I'm using a Scalextric LMP "Start" car and a Scalextric C6 vette. This can go ok or it might end up as parts. LOL
    Ill post when I start cutting I have a couple of ideas how I want to just have to decide and get the saw out!

    Sounds great! But you do have your work "cut out" for you... (pun intended!)

    It's actually only Corvette looking in theory. But it is STILL a great looking race car, and the BEST looking Daytona prototype.

    Why doesn't my car run like that?

    I know its going to be a job. Im only going to try to fit the nose on it and leave the rear somewhat alone.

          Got time this morning to start on the build, as you can see from the pics I got the cutting and rough fitting done. I made a temporary brace because I had to spread the nose about .040-.060 so the body's matched. This will make it much easier when I go to glue the two half's together and then ill cut it out ounces its bonded. One of the pics shows I decided to fill the top air vents in because I think it wont fit into the hood later on.So far im happy with the merge between the two cars but the hardest part is to come when I have to fabricate the hood and make sure the wheel base is spot on and square.
          Thanks for checking the build out and hopefully by next weekend ill have the two bonded together and start on making the hood and body lines flow together

                  You are probably past this stage, but you might want to carefully wave a heat gun at the nose where you have it spread. Just to let the plastic "relax" in that position. Otherwise it may cause a twist when you take the spacer out. BTW, looking good so far!

                    Noddaz thanks for the tip. I did already glue it but wasn't a lot of spread so it went well. I got the two half's together and hood glued in place with filler pieces on the side. I just finished putting the fist rough coat of filler on and many more to follow!! Hopefully by the end of the week I can have a coat of primer on and you can see the body lines better. I am happy with the way they are coming together.
