With 2 sons, daddy dreams of rebuilding the house into a race-circuit...
It all started with 1 TYCO-box (Monte Carlo), bought on a local jumble in september 2002. The collection grew rapidly with the help of www.ebay.com and a creditcard.
Some were sold,
some were bought...
and some added to the
Apart from a lot of cars we now have corkscrew curves, looping, lap-counters, x-meters of straight and curved track, different powerpacks, etc.
These Formula TYCO slotcars reach
sensational scale speeds up to 1900km/h!
Aurora, Faller, T-Jet and Life-like are other brandnames, who all share the same HO-gauge, on a 1/64 scale (= Matchbox-size).
More info in Dutch at Fred Internets HO-slotsite.
Talking about chevrons, there isn't much around unfortunately.
It is in the Life-Like-series that I found
the CitroŽn ZX-rally-model of which we now have 2 red ones, 1 silver and 2
yellow ones (some rear spoilers are missing). Funny thing about 1 of the yellow
ones is that it is a pirate-model of some Chinese manufacturer. Chevrons are
mounted upside down on the hood..
Somewhere 1968/70 Faller AutoMotorSport
manufactured the DS19-model. So far I've seen yellow, blue, red and greenish
versions on E-bay, but a bit overpriced considering the 6,25 euros they costed
at the time.
Every now and then, you can score a bargain: .
Some of the above DS 19's in our collection
are from a self-to-build-package, based on T-jet-chassis, from Umpfi's Slotbox.
