  • Lincoln Sportsman Race car

    A little different kind of racer. It is a old repop from Revell's 1/32 kit from 1956 that was released in the 90's. It one of those old kits that the body had separate sides , hood, trunk , roof ect. I am using a Monogram stocker chassis. The interior is modified from a old Revell/ Monogram Lumina kit. More to come.

            I got a nice shiny coat of Rustoleum gloss black paint on the body. Still working on the chassis. Messing around with wheels and tires. These wheels in pic are just on there for now, not being used.

                The chassis is pretty much done. It is riding on Slot It wheels. The wheel inserts are from a Monogram Greenwood Vetted trimmed to fit. Power is from a Slot Car Corner Piranha motor going to Slot It gears. A Slot It wood guide is being used too.

                    Well the beast is finished. I chrome foiled the body trim. Added some decals, and mounted a chrome air cleaner to the hood. A windshield was found in the spares box and sanded till it fit. I made some exhaust pipes from some plastic tubing. I want to add some meatier rear tires, I just used what I have for now. It is pretty fast and handles really well!

                        Cool car. I like different from the norm. There was a guy on SCI who was into Carrera digital that found a 1/1 '56 MKII in a barn [an actual barn find]. He was able to buy it for $5k, [what a deal, it was in real good shape] and it was a driver after minor tuning and cleanup. Black like yours. His name was Art or Al and he lived in Pennsylvania, can't remember his last name. Great guy, helped me out with some Carrera digital stuff as we are both into that.
                        Anyway, your car reminded me of him
