  • Studio-65 a new Manufacturer and a great story.

    A TTAC Readerís Project CarÖIn 1/32 ScaleBy Derek Kreindler on October 26, 2013

    Studio-65

    TTAC reader and contributor John Kit isnít a big commenter, but for good reason. When heís not driving his 1993 Miata, John likes to race slot cars. His own home boasts a track modeled after the Spa circuit and has live timing equipment available for use Ė and now John and his daughter Emma have launched a slot car line of their own.



    Johnís first creation is a 1/32 scale Jaguar XK120, hand built by John and Emma, with a resin body and a brass chassis. Most of the work was done by Emma, who learned how to make molds, pour resin, paint and solder. The cars you see here are the result of her handiwork.

    Great looking cars

    They really look great.

    Is there room in there for a Carrera chip?

    Any future plans for a coupe?

    My brother had a '52 Coupe in real life (1960). I learned how to drive a stick shift with that one. Wasn't stock either. He converted it to a real runner with a Chevy engine.

    Would love to here more of this story, availability etc.

    Great job Emma.

      We had a great day at our first time at the Canadian Slot Car show today.



      Special thanks to SCI (Mr. Smith) and all of the members of the forum and those members who came up to us to talk and were so wonderfully supportive of our effort.

      As you can see, we are just starting to build our product line with the 120 as our feature product.

      Don, the 120 is currently an analogue car, we have not yet tried to add any digital chips as of yet.

      We have to explore this and other suggestions we received today.

      Great story about your brother's 120! Do you have any photos?

      Availability - We are pleased to say that we still have two cars available. Sales have been beyond my (our) expectations and the feedback we received today at the show was extremely positive.

      Thanks very much to you Don and everyone who has been so supportive of this effort.

      Emma (and John)

                And what is the plain resin body on the table?

                Comment

                  The plain body is a Lola t-70 prototype in 1/32 scale.

                  It is an accurate 1/32 body and a potential project, we were trying to get some feedback from the show attendees to see if there was any interest in it.

                  Johnny, please PM us for purchase details, our web site is in the process of being built. We would love to hear from you.

                      My blue Jag arrived today..well secured in its case with foam and bubble wrap, and the case itself bubble wrapped in a good box...a week door to door to where we live is just fine...am fully satisfied with the build quality and design...runs well on my carrera track ....bit of float for the body which sits nicely...good paint and well executed details ..all in all it's value for money and I will be keen for any future issues or other liveries...

                          There will be more to come.

                          Wheelszk, outside of Canada, the cost of the car is $175 USD which includes shipping.

                          Thanks again,

                            On another site I saw a picture of the underside of your Jag, and I thought to myself, I've seen that chassis design before. Sure enough I found the posts you made last year for your front engines Sprites. Any chance of those being a future Studio-65 product?
