Topic: New look for an old Project
This 1/24 scale Triumph TR3 has been hiding in the back of a drawer for years.
Way back when I was drag racing with Bob and the guys in Vancouver we had an "import" class. I built this and a Toyota Cressida for that class. At some point after I had my own track I put the body on an old AMT chassis with some odd looking insert wheels.
I looked unsuccessfully for a long time for 5/40 threaded wire wheels. I've tried various inserts but didn't like any of them. A few days ago in another drawer I found four Dynamic "sport" wheels that looked kind of like wire wheels but they didn't fit well under the body. I ended up just painting what I had and adding the spinners.
While it is no speed demon with its 36D motor it is very quiet, smooth and fun to drive.
Now to work on an interior.
