baby aston DP214

Postby baby_astons » Tue Aug 28, 2012 4:17 pm

I couldn't claim to be presenting the newest kit here as one of my entries:
the aston dp214 as made by lindberg in 1966 and 32nd scale - it's deffo a challenge being a rather basic rubber band slot car... :shifty:

what's in and how it's supposed to come together - suppose it would take around 10 minutes to assemble...

mind you, I think, there'll be a bit of modding going on until xmas

sinkmarks anywhere you look, a dividing line running in the middle of the car - what else you'd be dreaming of :?

Now that's vintage plastic!
Lots of err 'potential' there BA. Shall I pass the fuse wire along?
Needs more fusewire

it'll be more like a lot of plasticard and chopping held together by fuse wire, a nice lifting bonnet would be lovely to have too :shifty:

Ok BA, I think that you must be a tease and put some ideas up of your thinking on more possible mods (as you know this year I and doing a straight mod, and trying very hard not to use any :superlglue: ) ..... Oh heck, is the latter possible ?! :roll: :roll: :roll:

Hi astons
I saw this kit made into a slot car recently, she looked superb. Are you considering the slot car option or are you building a display model.

fitting answer to paul's question -
I'll supposedly go the way just like mark and postpone the build - maybe to next year -
the background is simple: I had a build example (not by me and quite basic as well) and managed to locate a white KIT -
the one you see in the picture - the plan was to keep the kit and re-build the ready model instead - albeit I can't find the built car :shock:

yes, especially as yours truly has a sophisticated storage + list system indicating "which model is stored where, when was it bought at which price" -
but the built model is NOT where it should be according to the computer - big search under way since weeks now... :roll:

don't make me panic - so far yes but I am reluctant to start a system wide search among 1500+ models :?

nah! paul, it's "only" somewhat over 300 kits that need to be built - so an easy and fast fix :shifty:
