Since its discovery, its originality has made me fall in love of this car and wanted to realize it in a slot car. It entered to Brooklands in 1922 for the race of B.A.R.C. Whitsun Meeting. It would always run at Brooklands in September of the same year under No1. The pilot would be George Egerton and the mechanic? The wooden body, built on the Bentley No70 chassis with 3-liter No75 engine, is of the Compton coachbuilder. The Slot car The mechanical characteristics are identical to those of the Bentley TT built in parallel. Its mass is 114g. The WWII MK35 "cheminot" (railwayman)’s head (French figurine scale 1/35) replaces the one of the LMM. Slats were cut into 0.8mm spruce wood slices wrapping French Reblochon cheese.
Exact Brian, the mechanic listens to the engine. Dangerous position. You are a marine mechanic?
Munter, happy that this Slot Car was able to enhance your breakfast.
Here are some photo’s that show the work of the metal part. This work is less important than for the Bentley TT. Everything is glued with the two-component and are in tightening 24 hours. You have to be patient!
Model and feasibility
Formatting the hood (bonnet?)
Finishing and collage
Platform for holding the side members. Built according to a model
Assembly of side members identical to the Bentley TT
Louvers too complex to achieve. I make small pieces. The shape in front of the louvers is stamped.
Thanks for your interest. I‘m at your disposal Regards Jean-Pierre
