Wondered what the consensus was on perhaps a 1.24th scale section on this forum, to showcase some of the bigger cars. I've just purchased a 1/24 Cox Ferrari 158 F1 which I plan to restore, and looking around there are so really beautiful larger scale F1 models.
If we get enough votes maybe Chris or Mark will consider, even on a trial basis?

Jon, we went through this" debate" with sports cars a while back. This forum remains and will remain dedicated to 1/32nd scale open wheel racing cars. If you want to post about your Cox Ferrari there are other venues as you know. Mark
Jon, this is Chris, I agree with Mark, adding extra topics such as 1/24th and sports cars will weaken the appeal of this forum. After all I created this Forum and called it: THE F-1 ONE-THIRTY-TWO SCRATCHBUILD FORUM for a reason. We are gaining members consistently, and I remain committed that this forum is for 1/32nd Open wheel Racing Cars, for the purview of Gentlemen. (and Ladies if we can get any to join) there will be no consensus at this time. Chris

I'm a relatively new member of the Forum like you and I like it the way it is - the fact that it focuses on one thing was the big attraction for me and I like the challenge of building in the smaller scale. I do build other models (sports cars, touring cars), although not in 1/24 scale (had enough of that when I was the member of a club). I think another factor is that, apart from vac formed body shells, there just aren't the cars available in 1/24. Sorry to be a bit negative - I'm not generally against change or new thinking so keep the ideas coming! I like your Honda by the way - I've got the Dave Jones shell somewhere that I'll get around to building someday.
