Welcome to our small world of MG racing. It started with a present of a secondhand Scalextric Mighty Metro set and has grown from there. There have been a few commercial MG models with the Scalextric Metro, Maestro and Lola being the most commonly still available. Team Slot make a poor 6R4 and there are a small number of plastic kits that have or will be converted to slot cars. Due to a very limited budget, cars have mainly been obtained from car boot sales and the like with a few new parts to replace worn and damaged items. Most models are based on Scalextric originals but other makes like Ninco and SCX have been obtained via the internet and models have been based on these, some using the Ninco Classic Wire Wheels, like the MG TD. Scalextric pre-war wire wheels make early MGs possible although the actual wheel size is too small.

Steve is very helpful, knows his stuff and has obviously been involved with slot cars for a long time. He currently has number of MG models including the MG1100/1300 and MGF I feature. His MG output is hampered by his other projects including - lingerie on wheels - Tri**ph has the bra car for the man you are. I need to raise funds for the models I'm missing


Mark Scale has provided a few cars when supplys were difficult.. He has a quick and easy to use mail order system.

A small company who may have ceased trading their Resin bodyshells. If you are interested in any of their range please click on the logo for their web site which will explain their current situation.

Their models included the MGBGT, of which I wish I'd bought more, and the 1968 VW Beetle, that are on this site.

Patto's Place for Decals and vacumn bodies of many types of cars.

He created the additional decals required to model the No. 34 2001 Le Mans Lola

WARNINGS

 

Monk Bar Model Shop, York
For those who live in the area this shop may be main dealers for Scalextric but their knowledge appears to be limited. They were not very helpful when I asked about spares and were not prepared to try and obtain specific parts from Scalextric.



Scalextric have a good website showing "all" their current range. They also list the spare parts that are available. The problem is that you cannot get hold of these spares. Most shops, like that named above, don't want the hassle of trying to obtain them, but Scalextric wont supply those shops that would stock them like Pendle, or even their customers direct.
