SLOT SOUL: Foxhill Capri

Fly Ford Capri RS Turbo

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.

This slot started life as a Fly Racing Ford Capri RS Turbo. As this car is a Fly Racing version, it came with no decals and was a foul light blue colour. Basicallt it NEEDED a face lift big time! You can read a 'How-To' on the relivery process for this slot here:

The Foxhill Racing Capri is a fantasy livery. I know there are a lot of slotters that don't like fantasy liveries, but I think it works really well with the aggresive lines of the Capri. The car has been put together for the Down-Under Proxy Race 2008. You can find out more details and follow the results of the DUPR08 here:

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:
