Having another sort out and getting rid of stuff from back then.

Came across a lot of pics of my venture into this (furiously searches the backs of a pile of photographs in the hope one will have a date on it) small scale version of the real thing. I remember I put a LOT of effort into this and and the potential for kids to get an insight, but to no avail. Had meetings lined up with the powers to be of the day and they just fu**ed me off with excuses.

Anyway if there is any merit in the pics and memories, let me know.

Not one to put crap up on this site, so down to the members (all 8 of us) to decide..

No the buck for the pop (pics to come) disappeared when the vac forming company I used moved sites. I still have a 2mm first pull body from that buck and an unfinished Fordson buck.

Although, hang on. I seems to remember making the first body out of balsa wood, but for the life of me I don't know what happened to it. Maybe it will come to me when I go on to the Pop stuff.

So here are some final pics of the altered and a couple of experiments with the chassis as a base. Note the rear slix are different to the ones in the above pics..... Da; Da; Daaaaah. more will be revealed later.

The 'Pop altered was never developed as I didn't really like it, but it could be made by cutting the crap out of my standard Pop body.

The final 2 pics (Topolino) were going to be the next body I wanted to produce. I even stated on the buck, but life ete etc.

Thats just a drawing on a bit of thick car and rested against the altered chassis.


Anyone notice the working parachutes?. I sacrificed a little bit of weight with a servo just to pull the chutes. It was worth it.

well cool like them all .I made a pop altered in 1/25 th scale as an idea for a racer that had methanol firebird funny car and an outlaw Anglia out of both model kits .this was what I came up with.i think on my one there`s too much in front of the wheels
