Inspired of the thread "Having fun with old Scalextric cars" on Slotforum.com I started this project.
Raw material was C120 scalextric and the new M23 chassis and parts plus other parts from old craft projects...
|The body cut to three pieces|
|The chassi being cut to fit. The "drivers pin" also cutted off.|
|The body needs some trimming. The driver is cut out.|
|The rear is narrowed. At this point only one side is done. Compare left and right side. Start cutting from rear then a cut from the side.|
|Some trimming at the front behind the steering sleeve and also on the sides. Also, the front suspension in the chassi has to be cut off.|
|Try on. Now I get the feel for where we're going.|
The front axle is a little rear of the steering sleeve. The wheelbase is a little shorter than the McLaren. Compare with the original M23.
|I could not resist to put some colour to it to get the feeling|
