  • Another Strangebrew dirt late model

    ....................Finished another all resin "dirt late model".........................
    Using one of my cast chassis, I tired something a bit different.
    I used magnets where normally I would use body mounting screws
    I glued 4 small round magnets to the chassis with corresponding magnets attached to a styrene angle on the body.
    I simply drop the body onto the chassis & the magnets grab & align the body perfectly.
    Being pretty powerful round magnets they hold the body from moving front or rear also ..
    😀
    The magnets can be found in the jewelry craft section of any hobby store.
    Made a bunch of laps, & so far so good

        I used magnets for body mounts on 2 Trans Am builds mounting Revell SnapTite bodies on Scalextric chassis. To allow some float and simulate a sort of suspension I cut up some cheap Walmart foam paint brushes and used foam as part of the mounts. Glued one end of a piece of foam to the body, glued a piece of metal to the end of the foam making contact with the chassis, then glued a traction magnet to the inside of the chassis. Body movement was constrained by the thickness of the foam used .

        A concern for me was not having the magnets be too strong so the foam was damaged (torn) when removing the body. A thin strip of painters tape between the magnet and metal reduced the grab just enough so the mounts held the body in place but also could be pulled apart when needed.

            What printable vinyl did you use for your graphics? Is it self-adhesive?

              I'm curious about the vinyl used for the decals too. Strange does a great job with homemade decals.
