Batch of slightly modified and repainted figures.
#1

Here are some photos of my latest slightly modified and repainted batch of figures.
All figures are second hand and bought at swapmeets such as the UK Slot Car Festival in Gaydon.
Most changes concern the hats, which now have been changed to caps with the help of a file.

Just for fun: Here are some more photos of slightly modified Scalextric figures.
For modifying I used a file, sandpaper, masking tape for making shawls and some tile adhesive.

Unfortunately, the choice of figures is not that large, so with a little patience you can expand the range a bit.

All your figures sensational Hub - full of life and individual character - but those magazine-reading tractor drivers are really amazing Thumbup

I think one of them should be reading one of your articles in Slot Car Magazine...

Thank you for liking, Andy.
At the moment I have printer problems and don't know how to fix it.
Otherwise I would certainly also have used a scaled down Slot Car Magazine.

After some searching, I found a photo of the "Slot Car Shop owner", who's reading a Slot Car Magazine.
I also found a plastic bag with some more 1:32 SCM magazines left and took a photo:

Maybe this is an idea to get some more Scalextric spectator variations.
Cut the left arm, drill a hole in the body and the arm and glue a (wooden) pin inside.
Here is the result:
