Vintage Tinplate

Scalextric Tin Plate Ferrari 375

Another lovely old car on display, thanks to Kevin M for sharing. The “gimbal” pickup guide is amazing.

Kevin Writes:- “Scalextric Tin Plate Ferrari 375, C 1957-1959. Motor and rear axle are integrated into one unit, gimbal wheel pickup guide. One rear wheel has hard rubber for drive, the other three are hard plastic, helping the car slide into corners. The driver figure is moulded from rubber.

Sean’s Truck!

Sean is always working on something new. This truck has been developing over a few weeks/months I imagine. Looks great.

Not sure about the JPS on the Fly prime mover and the other manufacturer of cancer sticks on the trailer, but it still looks good.

Kev’s Restoration Project – Tamiya 1/24 Lola Spyder

Introduction

Kevin M has two of these vintage slot cars, one restored and one a project car he plans to bring up to the same standard. The difference really shows between the restored car and the  Lola still waiting for restoration.

About The Restored Car

“Mid to late 1960’s Tamiya 1/24th scale Lola T70 Spyder Can-Am Car. Inline brass chassis with rear suspension, Mabuchi 36D motor.”

IMG_3953The Yet to be Restored car

“Mid to late 1960’s Tamiya 1/24th scale Lola T70 Spyder Can-Am Car. Inline brass chassis with rear suspension, Mabuchi 26D motor. This car is in the original condition as raced in the 1960s.” (Although it probably looked better in the 60’s – ed.)

I was unaware that Tamiya had ever made Slot Cars! Thanks for sharing this with us Kevin!
