Formula 1 T73 Cooper progress

As a result of being somewhat unobservent I realized I had soldier the main chassis upside down. So I unsoldier the chassis correcting the mistake. That meant resoldiering everything.

I was able to install the motor, pinion and main gear. Best of all I tested it on my track and she ran most smoothly.

Next up to add all the scale bits to the chassis. Also on Monday I’ll make the body mold and produce a slush cast polyurethane body. I’ve started the windshield form to vacuum form as well. This is a fun project and I thanks Chis Wright of Bear Dog racing for all the help on this!

    Nice to see the Cooper being finished.

    I actually met John Cooper in the 90’s, very briefly, at a Mini-meet at Gaydon.
