    gentlemen,

    I urge you to take a look at this website.

    Car modelling in England in the 40's 50's and 60's.
    The origin of pylon racing and slot cars.
    How to make tyres and wire wheels. More and more.

    This man was amazing. Henri Baigent.

    Yes Sir! This man is probably the first of the "Masters" of scale auto modelling! He may have been the creator, or at least a major contributor to, the development of slot car racing! He was written up in PLAYBOY magazine, by Sterling Moss! back in '66, with a three page spread! He made a camera for himself, to document his own work. He made tyre molds just as they are made, and vulcanized his own tires! He wrote many articles sharing his experiences.
    -That model featured in PLAYBOY, was a Ferrari 250 GT, was made for $12,600.00 back in 1966!!

    Thank you John! For bringing this to our attention!
