Imp slot car

Here’s how my Highway32 Imp slot car came out:

Imp slot cars

I’ve just taken delivery of a pair of slot cars from Highway32. The first one is an Imp saloon kit. I’m tossing up whether to do it as a replica of my own Imp or whether to do it up as the Bevan Imp.

The second one is an Imp coupe which I intend doing as a Stiletto.

Both are nicely detailed models. The shells are designed such that they can be configured for either single or twin headlights, depending on which Imp variant you want to represent.

They also come with a choice of wheel trims so you can go with either hubcaps or Minilite alloys.

I’ll be sure to post more pictures when they’re finished.

Highway32 also do Alpine and Rapier slot cars. You can find out more at http://www.traffic-modelcars.com/

Budapest Imp run

Budapest04 – Blogged!

As I write this a group of intrepid Imp owners are driving their cars from London to Budapest and back again. You can follow their progress on the site above.
