    That's how it is supposed to be used on Lexan, also, even though nobody does, even with an air brush!

    Patto at Pattos Place recommends acrylic. Maybe he has a different PETG.

    It doesn't take too many rattle cans to break even, on that.

    Hi

    Last month, Harbor Frieght was running a sale on their dual action brush for 12 bucks. I have been using a high end brush for 40 years, but regularly replace the tips and such which cost MORE than the entire harbor freight brush, box, cups and everything. These are not as precise as my ink tip high end, but with the paints we use on bodies and the conditions, more than good enough.

    Anyway, they have a package deal with a very quiet compressor and brush for about 70 bucks.

    The rattle cans Pactra markets for poly want a carb is plain laquer and it does slightly craze the inside of those bodies. Since the crazing is inside, it isn't noticeable.

    Doing PETG, get a cheap air brush, and use water based acrylic. Check Harbor Freight and Tools for a cheap air brush with a compressor. I believe the Pactra rattle cans would harden PETG to the point the body would no longer be usable.

    So long,

    We have had "with my own eye" Truescale Racing Products items. They SPARKLE!

    Most proxys ban vacuum or blow molded bodies. Let one proxy embrace them.

    We should consider a proxy for modern clear plastic SCALE slot car bodies.

    We posses some old butyrate that have shrunk to about 1/43rd scale. While they be not collectable, they would have an unfair advantage on a small track.

    Should they be Lexan, or they be PETG, let the good times roll. How 'bout ancient RussKit?

    Please see "Old Weird Herald" "Tech Tips & How To's" "Scratch Brass chassis-by Larry Shephard "

    Patto might concur.

    Are there any more?

    So long,
    Mad John

    P. S. Formula Libre...Anything goes...run what ya brung. Just like the old days, only 1/32nd scale! If someone has a real rocket, the proxy driver probably won't make the first turn, unless the venue is a "Blue King".

    Tamiya have the PS-19 Camel yellow that I have used and it is pretty close to the original McLaren color.

    Pactra have a Bright Yellow RC-285 that is also close, but every can that I have tried has sprayed badly and the paint has "clumped" on the way out the nozzle.

    Remember if you buy bodies from Victor, you may get teh choice of Lexan or PETG, and it is generally not a good idea to spray PETG Bodies with polycarbonate paints, unless you lay it on very dry in thin coats.

    Can anyone suggest a proper McLaren (spray) orange paint for lexan? Tamiya makes one, but it only works on plastic.

    Excellent! Victor, you rock! When will the new bodies be on the site? Also, any plans for 1/32 Indy Cars? Would love to see some lexan roadsters, but this might be wishful thinking!

    I added the measurements of the bodies to the photos.

    I agree. Wheelbase, dimensions, etc., would be great. These are fantastic bodies - I love them. I have found that the Slot it adjustable chassis fits the T163, but dimensions for all would be great. When will these be available? And the Lola t70? I keep checking the site, but nothing yet. Take my money.

    Very nice bodies. It would be very helpful if you'd also list the wheel base and track of these bodies so we can figure out what chassis would fit.
