Quality Stuff For the Scale Model Slot Car Enthusiast, including:
Lotus 30 Body Kit
This much anticipated release of the legendary and beautiful Lotus 30 as raced by Jim Clark in 1964 is a must have for every serious scale model racing enthusiast. Many versions of this racer graced tracks around the world in subsequent years by privateers. This low, sleek and very sexy body style is an iconic silhouette etched in many memories.
hand made DArt body kit is based on the original Hawk release from 1965. Molded
in lightweight and resilient white plastic this one piece shell with clear
plastic wrap around windscreen and full interior is perfect for any sidewinder
application and comes with numerous options and upgrades. The shell alone is
122mm long x 56mm wide and weighs in at approximately 12.5 grams. The wheelbase
is approximately 72.5mm. The shell has several molded body post ‘stubs’ to
accept #226 Evergreen styrene tubing with brass 2-56 inserts & stainless
steel 2-56 countersunk screws (included). Choose from three popular body mount
configurations: two, three or four post or use your own system. Go
to the Lotus 30 body kit details.

Several new body kits (such as the Porsche 804 above) have been released to the local R32/Scratch32 group over the past few years and they will now all be available on-line. The kits range in price from $30 to $50 (cdn). The kits now available (to be listed over the next several days) are: Porsche 804, Matra MS10, Shadow DN1, Brabham BT44 & Ferrari 312P. Future kits to be released shortly include: Lotus 30, McLaren M1B, McKee MK10 Wedge, Chaparral 2J, McLaren M5A and more!
In an effort to reduce the cost of shipping and the prices of our kits we are moving to a lightweight package for all of our kits. Since we box all of our kits for shipping it really makes no sense to put boxes into boxes adding significant weight and cost. Made from cardboard/heavy weight paper our new 'pillow' boxes are smaller and much lighter, not to mention cost much less.
Free shipping threshold reduced to $50 (cdn)!!! I must be crazy!!! (Actually, since we will no longer be shipping heavy items (motors, wheels) I am able to reduce the shipping threshold.
Due to increases in the cost of shipping I am now offering free worldwide shipping only on orders of $100 (cdn.) or more. The actual cost of shipping will be added to any order under $100 (cdn.).
