Hello, this is my first post.
This is a Scalextric C66 Cooper Austin "Formula Junior". First released in 1963, the Formula Junior cars were marketed as budget models in the Scalextric range of ready-to-run slot cars. The cars were fairly basic, with simple two piece bodies and few details.
For this project, the goal was to create a better running Formula Junior, detailed to the specifications of a 1962 Cooper Mk3 T59 Formula Junior as it might be currently configured to race in a modern vintage event.
The running gear is original, with modifications to the chassis, guide and ride height. The car has been detailed with scratch built parts.
