Welcome to my AFX slotcar page.
It'll be in here that you can see some of my slot car modelling with the AFX scale slot cars , The AFX cars are modelled in !/64th scale or otherwise known as "S" scale ; You might've seen one of my AFX pics in my "Other Projects" page - you can access that page from the bottom of this page to see what other projects I've done.
Aussie Invader 2
This pic can be seen on my "Other Projects" page & shows my 2 Aussie Invader #2 jet cars that I've scratchbuilt , The smaller one is modelled in "HO" scale while the Larger one is made in the AFX ( 1/64th ) scale & is still awaiting to have the paint job completed.
Note : There's a link to Roscoes website in my "Links" Page listed under Car Websites.
Here's a few AFX cars lined up on a starting line ready to race while ( below ) my "Johnny Lightning Batmobile" & my son's AFX car are pictured below on a friends layout.
The "Batmobile" is a "Johnny Lightning" car while the other one is an AFX Turbo car.
Above : 3 AFX scale "Mini's" , 2 sitting on "Supa G +" AFX chassis & one on a "Turbo" chassis , This body ( & a few others ) are available from a friend of mine ( David Gannaway ) via the Way Out West slot car website located in my "Links" page.
Here are 2 Ford Falcons & 2 Minis all lined up on the Supa G+ chassis , The Yellow "BA" Falcon is on a "Johnny Lightning" chassis in this pic.
Here's an "Up Close" pic of an AFX Supa G + chassis , while below - this pic shows the comparison between the Turbo & supa G+ chassis units.
The comparison between a "Turbo" chassis & a "Supa G+" chassis.
Above : Here's a "Vacuum formed" body by David Gannaway that he's made to suit the AFX type chassis , This is one that I've bought & painted ( rather hurriedly ) of an "XW / XY" series Ford Falcon & it can now be cut from this moulding & fitted to a chassis.
Here are two AFX Ford Falcons , My "XW/XY" on the left & My son's "BA" on the right , Both bodies are from my friend David Gannaway.
Please note that the "BA" sreies Falcon is sitting on a "Johnny Lightning" chassis for this pic.
In these 2 pics ( above & Below ) are 2 more vacuumed bodies from my friend ( David Gannaway ) of a Volvo 740 & a "RT" series Valiant Charger.
If you'd like any of these vacuumed bodies for your AFX slotcar collection just contact my Friend David Gannaway via his website which is located in my "Links" page , Just look for the Way Out West link in my "Links" page.
Here is a pic of my AFX Dragster that my friend David Gannaway has vacuum formed for me , after painting & assembling it I then modified the front axle set to suit & mounted it onto a Supa G+ chassis.
In these 2 pics ( Above & Below ) show a redily available AFX ute , As you'll see here I've made a canopy for one of them just for something different & is modified to look like a Ford F250 Bronco , I hope to complete the paint job someday.
My AFX & Johnny Lightning cars
Below are a few pics of my AFX collection , There are a few "Supa G+" cars in this group although most are just the "Turbo" type cars.
Here is the rest of my AFX collection ; I have been collecting these cars since 1994.
Above : Some "Turbo" cars along with some Super G+ cars.
Here is my current collection of Johnny Lightning / Thunder Jet cars , These are also known as "JL's" , TJ's" or "T-Jets" & have their motors & gears mounted a lot differently to the AFX style cars , since this pic was taken I've collected some more of these cars which I hope to add here later.
My "Hollywood" collection
Below are a few of the "Hollywood" type cars that I've collected since I 1st created this page some years ago now , These cars include 2 versions of the Batmobile & 1 version of the De Lorean ( from the movie Back to The Future ) , I'd like to collect any others that anyone might have & wants to sell off as I'm currently looking for the Dukes of Hazzard's "General Lee" Dodge Charger or the Knight Rider's "KITT" Trans Am or any other "Hollywood" car that might be available.
AFX Demo Derby Caravans
Although I should've included some pics of my AFX demolition derby caravans when I made them around 2011 - I'm finally including these new pics here in 2018 as I'd lost the original pics about 3 computers ago after it was hacked into & ruined by someone that we ( sadly ) know so these new pics show the 4 Demolition Derby caravans that I'd made back in 2011 which are designed to come part when hit by another of these caravans during a race , each van is colour coded to a lane so that people can know as to which lane that it belongs to plus they'll know which one that they're towing ( or partly towing ).
Van pic 1 shows all 4 vans behind a T-jet car , I've made the towing hooks that make this possible to be raced.
Van pic 2 shows these 4 vans from the rear end , as you'll notice - the join lines are clearly visable between the sections of each van in these pics mainly to demonstrate their ability to come apart.
Van pic 3 shows the inside views of the seperate caravan parts when taken apart , the MIG welding wire is used as locators for the assembly side of things which go into small holes that are drilled into the chassis part , as you can see - I've painted the towing "A" frame details just for looks.
Van pic 4 shows the underside view of the floor / chassis section for clarity.
Van pic 5 shows the partly assembled caravan as an idea of how easily it can be assembled , the "Yellow tac" is there in this pic to hold the locators in place as they'd broken off after being dislocated during handling plus I have some lead weight added to the front end to ensure that this caravan won't tip backwards during a race as it's rear end heavy.
Van pic 6 shows how I've used some more MIG welding wire for the towing hitch , the bend at the top of the "Hitch" is to make it harder for the caravan to un-hitch during a race but still be removable from the car when required.
