A simple build of a Charlie Fitzpatrick shell with Penelope Pitlane slimline chassis. Paint is Tamiya, running gear is slot.it and tyres and wheels are Ostorero. I felt it important to reinforce under the front and make up the front radiator exit ducts. There was also a lot of remodelling of the rear air box.

Hey André, I thought you saw! I sent you a message in facebook ages ago. If you search for me and find my photo albums in facebook theres a little how-to on rear wings. Its not a Tyrrell as I didn't photograph that build but hopefully can help...

Another idea... Soon André i'll be building the Surtees TS9B rear wing which is conceptually similar to the Tyrrell. Since after all this time you've never posted any of your own work i'll do you a deal.... Show us your work in progress and i'll take the time to do you a how-to when I build that wing!! What d'ya say?

Hi Andy, My slot car activity has always been racing BSCRA type cars. This year I decided to do some "scale" cars, so I am still learning and practicing and discovering things. At this moment, I am doing a McLaren m23, modifying a Betta Classic body and doing the missing parts, such as rear wing, front spoilers. So, do not expect great cars from me at this moment ... A friend is doing a chassis for a Brabham bt44 (French Scalex) and I think this will a very good car. Two other projects being worked are the McLaren m16 (indy 1971, Classic body) and the Scalex Ferrari 312t3 (1978 car). The Ferrari has enough space for a good chassis. Cheers ! André Acker.
