Fantastic Slotcars from Fein Design Modell

These photos are samples of the 1/24 slot car kits available from Fein Design Modell in Germany...

This is Jörg Stephan's beautifully built Chaparral M12 model. He refined the engine with many additional lines and connections, which are not included in the kit.

Here is an excellent Honker model built by Hans Tschudin in Switzerland.

Jörg Stephan shows us his great Porsche 917-PA. To allow us to marvel at the tiny engine injectors machined in brass, he designed the two removable covers! The nozzle at the head end is milled with the hexagonal wrench size of 0.7 mm, and a hole for inserting the fuel lines. The straps for securing the caps are made ​​of real leather of course!

News from Avant Slot

These photos of a 1/32 scale Delta Wing slot car under development by Avant Slot have leaked out onto the Internet. 

No information on price, release date, or technical specifications has yet surfaced, but this prototype looks like a very good effort. It will be intriguing to see how it performs as a slot car.

Preliminary indications are that Avant Slot intend to release their model in Red (presentation) Black (LeMans and ALMS) and Silver (2013 ALMS) decorations.

The 1:1 Delta Wing was a joint development of All American Racers, Highcroft Racing and Nissan. It competed in the 2012 24 Hours of LeMans as part of the "Garage 56" experimental racing car program.
