  • 1/24 Grand Prix Cars

    Hello all

    I have been working on some 1/24 scale Grand Prix and Indy cars.

    The Kurtis Kraft is a Monogram kit. The D50 is a resin body. The Talbot and Alfa are Merit/SMER kits. SMER is a reproduction of the Merit kits. The Vanwall is a resin copy of the Merit kit. The Maserati 250F is an original Merit kit. I have a BRM (#4 car in the photos) on the work bench and a Mercedes W196 to do as well. Some cars are ones I have built for friends.

    I am using a Penelope Pitlane chassis from Pendleslot with their vintage wheels and inserts. I have cast my own tyres. I am not sure of the original source.
    The motor is an SRP 16k motor - I wanted something mild that gave NC1 like performance. I am happy with how the motor runs.

    The drivers are the excellent Immense Miniatures figures. I had to cut and drill and sand and glue the arms to get them to fit the narrow cockpits.

    The Talbot and Alfa kits came with an engine which I added for extra detail. Decals either came with the kit are homemade or came from my stash of left over decals.

    Lots of fun building them though they were a long time in the incubation stage. . Now that I have finally completed these I also have several 1/24 Indy resin bodies I scored from a friend on one of the forums. A friend has a Maserati 4CL I might do a resin repop of.

    I have made a mould and repopped the Maserati 250f and the BRM.

    cheers
    David

        These are fantastic, and definitely the best drivers I have seen.

          my next foray will be in 3D printing some bodies in 1/24
