  • Andy,
    Thank you! Here is the collection as it stands right now:

    While the Lexan 2G is certainly not as proportional / detailed as well as the others, on the track, it moves too fast for one to notice!

      • Ti 22

        I am finally happy to add this submission to a most excellent thread that needed to be bumped anyhow. This is the seldom scene and scarce Autocoast Titanium,Can Am car. The real cars were seldom seen back in the day or now. Glad someone is finally producing it so the body does not have to be cobbled from other Can-Am ones.


        Where does this car fit? Just about everywhere! It is not a resin cast,nor is it lexan. This sucker is actually .020 thou styrene. It was airbrushed white and had hand painted details. Another simple project with 20 curves thrown in! The side decals are very poorly done compared to the rest of the kit. They seem like photo etched scans,very faint. Anymore details will be shared in my "Airbrush thread". This is basically the second version of this car,no wing. Almost everytime it appeared at Can Am races,it was different. Which was only about 7 races over a 2 yr. span. Over that time it appeared as a high wing,no wing,low wing car.


        Hope y'all enjoy this as much as I did getting it from bench to track. And don't even ask how hard it was to put the proper brim on Jackie O's helmet! I honestly tried to recreate that Bell 134 helmet from decal paper and everything else. Even wanted to trim the grandkids pinky nails.(lol)
        Finally settled on modeling putty. Then I striped it accordingly.not my best work ever but it is pretty good? I need to tidy up the cockpit paint lines and some of the black vents. Enjoy!!!

        • Old - Mech, that's a nice contribution to this popular and long running thread! Every "artist" is self-critical (me too), but from what I can see, it is a nice looking Ti-22, and that's not a body one sees often; I think it's the first on this thread!.

          What chassis is sitting under that body? Judging by the front wheels, it appears to be the later version "pancake" chassis; or did you just like the wheels?

          • Thank you, I will give more detail in my "Airbrush Thread". This chassis is more of a run what you brung unit. It's got lot's of wheelspin if I gun it. An old AFX non mag chassis,with blue & white mags old school lt blue & white mags with a mean green arm. The trick is using G+ wheels at the back. They look authentic and being small they set the chassis on the track.Plus if you look at pics of the real car the G+ replicate the wheel better than the AFX Mini Lite?

            • Good work on the Ti22!

              Good thread bump for one of those cars that made the Can Am so interesting back when and even now.

              I have that car in my plans to do this winter. I saw that body on eBay but I think I'm going to attempt my own. I've been working up my own decals for this car too, and that's been a learning experience for sure.

              • Thank you,Karl. I think your contributions here set the level for the bar. Always nice and well thought out! This kit was lacking a bit as mentioned. I feel this variation should have had black # decals. The later low wing car had blue # decals.

                Which version will you attempt,Karl? I think the last version with the low 917-10 style wing is the best. it is finished in a lt.blue livery. I know you can knock that one out with some work!

                Comment


                • I appreciate the comments, OM. I was planning on the early version without the wing when it first ran at Laguna Seca. I was lucky enough to be there for that race. Of course I might do the Riverside version with the wing too if the first one goes well.

                  I'll see about posting an image of the decals I'm making for the 1969 version of the Ti22. The numbers are a very dark blue with gold surrounding borders and there are a lot of pin stripes on various panels around the car. The eBay car's decal set could be better for sure while the body isn't bad. Even Pattos doesn't have the early car decals available.

                  Early in 1970 the graphics were similar but heavier lettering and with sponsorship by "Mornin' Afta", a hangover cure. A later version in 1970 had "Norris Industries" as a sponsor and the blue block style numbers. These 1970 versions don't appeal to me as much as the first year with and without the "Autocoast" (boats) sponsorship.

                  • I've always had this thing for Shadow Racing, ever since I was a kid. I think AFX is directly responsible for this. Here is a couple of mine. The one on the left is a stock Magnatraction car. The one on the right is modified to fit a stock AW 4gear chassis. We saw this idea on Facebook and liked it. The back wheels kick out like one of those drag racing motorcycles.

                      Veeeeeeery interesting. I can see where that would be fun!

                      • Thanks Bill!
                        We tried them out and these cars were fun, so we made a class out of them and run them in a regional race this month.



                        On 20v, these cars are wicked fast and handle well with the dual traction magnets. It was needed on this track. I dont know how many feet it is, but its a huge "E" with a 5 long straights.



                        Its a Tomy track, so everyone was using light colored cars. I was going to run a white 512m, but decided to go against the grain and run a Shadow body. They thought I was crazy, but the Shadow brought home the win! I cant wait to run it again.

                        • Here is an image of my in-progress decals I've been working on and a pic of one of the versions of the Ti22 I'm considering to show the colors.





                          The pinstripe panels will be made to fit the body I'll create so those haven't been made yet.

                          • No problem,Karl. You earned your kudos! I actually like the Mornin Afta car with it's bright blue graphics,just don't like the sponsorship. It would probably take a Porsche 510 or 917-10 to replicate that wing style. For those that don't know the TI project merged with AVS to form the UOP Shadow team for a few years.

                            • Reading about Peter Bryant (the designer and principle behind the TI-22), he was always struggling for sponsorship with his car. He eventually took on business partners whom he THOUGHT would solve his money problems; in the end, he got forced out, and lost control of both the original car (heavily damaged in a backflip) AND a follow up (improved) version. His subsequent employment at AVS with the UOP Shadow resulted in the Shadow MKII, (which had titanium engine struts, but no more of the exotic metal, in it's construction). He was then replaced as designer by Tony Southgate, who made the follow up Shadow Can Am cars AND the F1 chassis.........

                              • Who knows what would have happened if Peter Bryant would have gotten some good sponsorship early in the Ti22 history. Such a shame. Might have changed Can Am for a while, at least until the turbo Porsches took over.
