Scratch Built Beetle Slot Car
I have had this Airfix Volkswagen Beetle plastic kit for while with the intention of making it into a slot car. I was waiting to find a suitable chassis. I found that the wheelbase of the Scalextric Caterham was the correct length and I managed to get hold of another for a suitable price. I actually got a pair of Caterhams, but I could not bring myself to cut up the yellow one, so I used the blue Caterham. This was a bad move as it meant I had to paint the chassis so that it was not so obvious under the yellow Beetle bodyshell.
Some of you may spot the irony in that I have used a kit to make a Beetle. Usually it is the other way round.
You should be able to work out how I made my scratch built Beetle slot car by looking at the step-by-step pictures. A photograph is 'readable' in whatever language you speak (unlike this paragraph).
I have not finished the slot car as it started raining in my spray shop (patio).
