Well here's my 1933 Alfa Romeo 8C. Pictures are a little dull due to the poor light.
Complete, other than clear coating and a driver. Work beckons once more. I will the the Aston DBR1 to hopefully continue. I wet to paint the shell and the filler I used on it had not harden, so it has been refilled ready for rubbing down and priming
I may revisit the canopy as I would like a thinner leather (dyed black).

Looking good Brian, and the track pictures of course always look the part. It makes me think of Greenmans well known build. I've had one on the go for years, a fair bit of time having been spent modifying the tail.
It's actually on my list of cars to do, so is gradually working its way to the front.
As you can see I'm using our club rally track as a back drop for my builds of late as it gives them another dimension. At some point I'm going to go routed with my home slot car track and detail it as Mr Wisdom has with the club rally track.
I've just googled Greenmans Alfa Romeo and it led me back to the slotforum. I had never seen his builds before and I have to say they look the part and his drivers are awesome.
There are just not enough hours in the day, wish I could retire tomorrow and spend my life building slot cars.
