Topic: My "lockdown" projects.
While I am still working at this time, I am pretty much doing my days and heading straight home. So I have even more slot car time on my hands. This has pushed me to finish up some cars that I have had laying around for a while.
The first one was this Protoslot car I got out of the Goose collection. I bought it some time ago, but didn't feel I could build a chassis at that time to do it justice. Finally I decided without the pressures of time now would be as good a time as any.
I was lucky, and the kit was complete with the windshield and decals. Although these kits have not been available for some time, so I couldn't save all of the decals.
In the end I put a Flat 6 Slot.it motor in it, because the interior clearance is poor. I will be building a new one, that is hopefully more appealing once my Immense Miniature figures show up.
The wheel inserts are Policar 330. I mixed up some darker gold, using testors gold, brown, and a touch of black to get this color.
The kit did not have the roll bar, so I made one of those out of .055" piano wire.
I enjoyed the build, it is by far the "nicest" car I own at this point. Save for maybe my Racer 250gto. I kept thinking throughout that "I need to make Goose proud of this one".
