There was a Porsche Curves version in the early stages, but seeing as most of my "stock" is pre-1972 (917 frenzy!!!), opted for the Maison Blanche section instead.

It almost has all records, and sure it will surpass the others in time (around a week at current rate)

Airfix 1/32 scale kits are quite good for slot modifying - there must have been a Commer one made at some point - I'll go check ebay.

As for the venue, I have to say that I have the ultimate Scalextric track designed (but not built yet - got all the track but needs to be outdoors and no good weather yet). Just under 13 metres (tad over 40 feet) x 5.5 metres (18 feet). Will dig out the design.....

Well I used to know the AIRFIX catalogue by heart but they never did do a Commer, Though Dinky did. I wonder if Triang/minic did one that may be raceable, if so.

I used to scratchbuild aircraft , ships and carts and wagons from plasticard, might have to look into it, could be fun.

Take a while I'm still getting ready to put a BMW 5 speeder into Lara, the Midge, in time for the French blast.

It may not be a Commer, but it was an interesting(Huh) project.
