Calling out to the Kitmaker family.

Over on Automodeler we are now recruiting for a race-themed Group Build - "Strip, Track and Trail" which will see the chequered flag drop on April 1, less than 2 months away!

We have a lead-up discussion thread rolling along nicely HERE and the Rules/Regulations/Enlistment page can be found HERE.

If you have a kit tucked away at the back of the stash, just waiting for the motivation and opportunity to hit the bench, now is the time!

If you want to be part of the Pit Crew, join in the discussion, share your thoughts and stories, and support the builders, by all means please do!

Gratuitous photo of the kit I will be building along with 1:1 reference image follows for inspirational purposes, nitrous oxide backfire for added value



Cheers, D

Bump time, 6 weeks to go!

I feel like I'm walking through the forums with a sandwich board on poking people in the ribs


There must be plenty of folks out there with a race themed auto kit stashed away!

Formula 1, Nascar, Indy, Rally, 12-hour, 24-hour, Funny Car, Gasser, Top Fuel, Paris-Dakar, we don't even care if its Demolition Derby! Drag it out and join in the fun!

Cheers, D (Pit Crew)

I hope you get some takers, as Iíd like to see some open wheel racers here. I build solely in 1/24 or 1/25 scale, and sadly, there are very few open wheel kits available anymore in those scales. Seems like manufacturers have moved to more expensive kits in 1/20 scale (Tamiya, Ebbro, Has). It would be great to see some of the older smaller scale less expensive kits re-isssued. Maybe thatís part of the problem here, good luck with this..
