I've allready posted this on the 1/32 Scale Slotcar Scratch Builder thread on Facebook, (Apologies all round I should have posted here first) But here it is: a work in progress, Tazio Nuvolari's 1932 Alfa P-3.
Chassis by Beardog/Richard Mack, body by Marlon at Shadowfax. Wheels will be by Peter Seager Thomas, and a Nuvolari driver naturally will be by Marc at Immense miniatures.

Agreed Al; one of the delights of going to vintage (1:1) car events is to see the mass of burnished steel and polished aluminium etc. This 1/32 scale slot car build looks to have similar awe inspiring features.

Hi Al, here's a photo of the chassis, It started as a Richard Mack slimline. The front portion was modified to resemble the typical 1930's beam front axle. there are a few more details that have to be added.
I added a small rattle plate to add some weight down low, and fashoned a new guide plate to move the Shadofax guide under the front valance. The suspention details are attached to the body, unfortunately the Shadofax body does not provide a separate replica chassis like George Turners pre-war cars.
The friction shock absorbers are turned down small washers, both fromt and rear.
