  • Grand Prix / Indy cars

    Hello all

    I have been working on some 1/24 scale Grand Prix and Indy cars.

    The Kurtis Kraft is a Monogram kit. The D50 is a resin body. The Talbot and Alfa are Merit/SMER kits. SMER is a reproduction of the Merit kits.
    I am using a Penelope Pitlane chassis from Pendleslot with their vintage wheels and inserts. I have cast my own tyres. I am not sure of the original source.
    The motor is an SRP 16k motor - I wanted something mild that gave NC1 like performance. I am happy with how the motor runs.
    The drivers are the excellent Immense Miniatures figures. I had to cut and drill and sand and glue the arms to get them to fit the narrow cockpits.

    The Talbot and Alfa kits came with an engine which I added for extra detail. Decals either came with the kit are homemade or came from my stash of left over decals.

    Lots of fun building them though they were a long time in the incubation stage. I have a Maserati 250F a Mercedes W196 to build. Now that I have finally completed these I also have several 1/24 Indy resin bodies I scored from a friend on here and I am planning on picking up a Vanwall GP car as well.

    cheers

        Those turned out terrific! I especially like the detail on the driver figures and engine bays.

          Nice work indeed. Is that D50 a Dynocharger? I had one, years ago....

            It may be - I got two resin bodies of a chap - I thought they were Strombecker but looking at photos it does look similar to the dyntocharger D50
            I have 3 D50s one is a Merit and the other two are resin bodies.

                    Hi

                    Merit does a Maserati 250F - I have one of their kits - I was thinking about making a mould of it and casting some resin bodies. I also have a Merit Mercedes W196 which I plan to mould as well.
                    The wheelbase varies - on the Talbot it is 107mm whereas the Maserati is 95mm. Track width is around 60-65mm on each car.

                    cheers
