Description

 

Bob Boulais recently sent us some information and pictures about his scratch built Porsche 356 with a clever (and easy-to-build) chassis. This car features parts Bob purchased from SCC (see list below with links where appropriate):

 

Bob used a CG Slotcars inline motor pod with a 0.5mm offset.  This is a Slot.it compatible motor pod with a unique feature.  The "front" of the pod features 2 small holes that allow small tubes or piano wire to be inserted.  Bob used the motor pod with short lengths of piano wire inserted as the basis for his chassis.  Note this combination results in a very narrow chassis - ideal for cars like the Porsche 956.

 

 

 

Next Bob used a WRP brass guide tongue for 1/24 cars to tie the piano wire together while providing a platform to mount a guide holder and brass tube for the front axle.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Note the motor pod will also allow you to fasten a piece of brass to make rear body mount so everything is easy peezy.
 

 

 

Square brass tubing is used to fabricate a front axle holder.  SCC super flexible motor lead wire ensures the motor gets all of the electrical current it needs.  The result is a super skinny chassis allowing room for fat tires inside the 356 body. The Porsche 356 body is incredibly short - this is one of the few "chassis" kits that will fit.

 

 
 
Next a front body post is fabricated and glued to the underside of the body.
 
 
 
The finished car looks and runs great!
 
 
Thanks Bob for sharing your build!
