  • Well, here's my ALMOST GPR entry

    Yup, gave it a try, but, didn't quite make it. It runs real well, despite only being NC1 powered.

    Scratchbuilt Lola T70, repro resin body, the only 3 original parts are the windshield, and, the 2 front tyres.
    Not much to say really, so, as usual, I will just let the pics do the talking.

    That looks great, I like all Lola's but think the open cockpit ones are especially cool. Where did you get the body from? The chassis is awesome, simple yet it looks all business. All you need is an interior and some stickers and you'll have an awesome car.

    This may be an ignorant question but I'm a "newb" are the three brass pieces separate and if so what is the advantage of doing that?

      It's never too late! Send it in, Al! All ya need is a driver figure and a 48 hour courier and you'll be under the wire I bet!

      Robert, Van, Dave, say something encouraging that will get this world famous Philanthropist, Slotster, GPR Prize Provider and all around good guy into the mix! That car's probably so quick it don't need no magnet anyways ...

        OK Al, put on some first rate decals, paint up a driver, install the manifold with Webers or fuel injection stacks or whatever, bring it up to impossibly high standards of finish, and you are in. Deadline is long gone, and the first heat is nearly over. But it isn't over until the fat lady sings, as you know. Your car is welcome at East New York. A magnet won't help over copper, but would be needed over steel, which is upcoming on the Ninco, Polistil, and Scalextric tracks.

          Thanks for the kind words and encouragement guys, but, I don't know if I have enough bits to finish it real soon.

          Still need to make a complete interior, don't have a full vintage driver figure(Doc P is sending me one. I doubt it will be here till the new year.), don't have decals, don't even have pics to finish it off properly.

            Regards

            Alan

              Great looking model and chassis. By "repro resin" body do you mean that you cast this yourself, or is this a resilient resin kit? I want one.

                How do you limit the movement of the pans at the rear? I'm guessing there's some free play where the front cross-piece goes under the guide block, but what happens at the rear, or are there pieces yet to come?

                  Yes, it's one of mine.
                  How do you limit the movement of the pans at the rear?
                  Quite simple actually, one corner of the pan just kinda snags under the curve of the motor on one side. Deffinately more by accident than design, but, it works well.
