    Finally finished the Gene Chan T. It's not 100%, but you could pick it out of a crowd.

    Awhile back I saw a resin kit for sale on E Bay of junior Conway's 1950 Ford coupe. The kit was already built and I would rather do it myself. Anyone know who produced the kit? I would really like to find one!!!!
     
  19. Just stunning, John.
    I really appreciate your
    "no timeline" way of building and photography.

    Those look like Pittman/K&B motors.
     
  22. I believe that's a 1/12 scale Lindberg kit released recently as The Diamond Duster. Was released a long time ago, perhaps under a different name.

    My 34 with a banger is getting closer to being done,I now wish I would have kept the speed parts from the 70s Revell A sedan delivery kit but gave them away so this one is stock except for the wheels.

    upload_2018-3-19_18-22-14.png These little, thin, long motors looked similar to each other. It depended on what model of cars you bought from a kit or pre-made. The most common motor was the Pittman motor. They came in quite a few stock, "factory pre made kits."

    Hello,

    Nice little roadsters. They are keepers for sure ! Our friends had a couple of these after Christmas one year and immediately got taken to the road race circuit at the local hobby shop track. They kept flipping because of the high center of gravity and parts started to break. They had the stock brass frame with aluminum wheels.

    These Pittman Motors were usually built in to 1/24 scale models pre made from the factories. (whoever made them) The motors were hard to modify. So they were left stock. Later, after the motors were used, they got put in custom/homemade, thin wall, brass frames we made. The bodies were the lightweight, clear plastic, British Formula One Cars like the Graham Hill and Jim Clark versions. They were painted the green and white designs.

    Jnaki

    We added lighter weight chassis using ball bearings to make the wheels go faster. With the chassis lower to the ground, the streamlined Formula One clear/painted bodies, these little motors were now, fast. (with rear pinion/ring mods... and they did not flip over unless the driver was too anxious…)

    These small Pittman-style motors were not for drag racing, except for stock bodied, factory, non-modified, slot car classes.
