Missing wings is not a death sentence! HO Scale
Post Message
[attachment=5593][attachment=5592]        I was kindly sent some broken single seater Tyco and Tomy bodies by Dennis from Slot Lodge a few years back. 

This one had a single end plate and no front suspension. I cut off the end plate and used it as a template to make some new plasticard ones. I did make an angled rear wing but in the end settled for a single piece one instead. I put an additional brace under the body to give more surface area to weld the new end plates on. 

The other SG body had one piece of front suspension. This was cut off and used as a template for new plasticard pieces. For a future car it might be better to make a single unit with struts running through the body in newly cut channels. This would be stronger so I will look at doing that.

This car is now awaiting warmer weather to visit the paint booth. Decals are on the way from Patto and it will become one of my signature (livery of choice) AT&T cars to match my Nascar and Modified cars.
