Danny, I have probably a Darracq and a Mercedes for you. I have to see in my boxes ....
Danny, Peter, the wheels of my De Dietrich race car are false, that's the wheels for the "normal" version of the De Dietrich ... but I have many wheels of Revell Highway Pionneers models who are well going for the De Dietrich race car. I'm going to see with a friend if he can do wheels for me ...
you show us again a real piece of art! Absolutely brilliant!
At the moment, I am very busy with non-slotcar-projects, but this special car needs to get this comment from me!
Great paintwork on the figures! If you would fill the holes in the goggles with clear 2K-cement, you could get a real "glasses" look. I did it with the goggles of my 1966 Ferrari 246-driver (page 2 of the thread)

The thread continues....
I had the chance to drive this car over a couple of days and it was a revelation!
This car weight about 168g andruns on tyres with a 3mm tread width. It behaves incredibly well, other than that it is almost silent! This car is no slouch though of course, moving this weight will limit performance.
This was a great event, but I'm afraid we were too busy having fun to take a lot of pictures.
Here are a couple;
Favourite cars at present. The Napier Railton, despite its weight, went very well, and one of the fastest cars. The Alfa romeo P2 behind it was exceptional, only really running in, the performance continued and it went ever faster. Behind this, my 2009 Mini mille Miglia concourse winner, which with a sanding of tyres was no slouch. this car is Digital, and de-tuned with a 15 ohm resistor. Next row is Alfetta, Austin, MG and Darracq, all featured on this Forum. We then have ERA, Helle Nice Monza Alfa, Alfa 12C and Talbot Lago. Last row is Bugatti T35B, Blower Bentley and Bugatti T59.
It was a lovely weekend, It was nice to see so many pre war racers together, to exchange thoughts, to have somebodies opinion about the driving characteristics of my builds, talk about books and techniques. We enjoy it very much.
