Watson Roadsters


We had in our models list already 5 versions of these beautiful Indianapolis cars of the ' 60 and now we add other 3 new versions to grow up the collection.
The new versions are :

The white and red Leader Card SPL. # 3 driven by Rodger Ward winner in the 1962 Indianapolis 500 miles. He won also the 1959 edition and in 1960 Rodger Ward finished in second position behind Jim Rathmann's Ken Paul Spl. # 4, another car already available in our slotcars Indy collection.


The yellow and black # 19 Konstant Hot Special driven by Al Keller in 1961 edition. Al finished 5th although a 26th position on the starting grid. He raced at Indiapolis 500 Miles from 1955 to 1961 and this is his best finish position.


The black and red Racing Associates # 22 of Roger McCluskey. In the 1961 edition Roger was a rookie and unfortunatly he retired at 51 lap, but we chose this car because it was different from the other Watson, the exhaust was builted on the right side of the car and this particular made interesting this car for a slotmodel scale replica. Roger McCluskey after this race, started in 18 other Indianapolis editions.


As our previous slotcar resin models we realized the body shape in resin and all the details in resin and photo-etched. We changed a little bit the chassis, we made it in Silver Nickel, instead brass, this makes the chassis more resistant and easier to sold. To reproduce the real cars our slot models are powered with front engine. Attached you can see some photos of the 3 versions and also the built Nickel Silver chassis.

The 3 Watsons are available in RTR and pre-painted body Kit. The first model available is the Leader Card SPL. of Rodger Ward, in the next weeks will be available the others 2 versions, and we will advise when they will be available.

By the way, from now on we have enabled our website to sell directly to our customer enthusiasts and slotcar collectors with Credit Card, Paypal and other types of payment.
