SLOT SOUL: Porsche 917K

Fly Porsche 917K

2007 has to be the year of the plain kit., MB Slot, Ninco and Spirit all release slots in plain kits so you can create your own piece of slot soul, a unique liveried slot car with your own character. I find that there is nothing more enjoyable as racing your own personal liveried slot.

I thought I'd start sharing some of my sprayed and liveried slot cars as I really enjoy this aspect of our great hobby. If you're a first timer, this section is designed to inspire you to start down the road of producing your own slot cars. If you have already explored this aspect of our hobby, I hope you enjoy the photos. I encourage you to send some photos of your cars in so I can share them with other readers.

The decals I used are produced by DMC but there are plenty of other excellent decal manufactures. I source my decals from Pendle Slot Racing:
