OK, never being one to shy away from a challenge, I love your idea to create the Ecurie Ecosse team truck from the 1950s. As for three D-Type Jaguars, well, I'll have to look into my pile of blue... and that Porsche 356 - which I described as the curviest ever made - looking at the form of the D-Type I see this may be wrong!

Anyhow, I hereby claim the Ecurie Ecosse transporter (great idea, Ape!) and one D-Type Jaguar in Ecurie Ecosse colours (blue). If anyone wants to make another D-Type, my transporter (when I eventually make it - it'll take a while!) will be the same scale as Ape's Fiat, but probably not as lovely.

I really hope group this works! Part of me wanted to hold back asking you about the Ecurie Ecosse transporter, as it's my favourite and I know once you make I'll never better it!

As long as the team is the same I'd say it's fine, but be a bit careful, as some 'teams' that look the same are the same in nothing but their title (e.g Red Bull). Porsche is a good example though as they used to run cars in various classes at sports car racing

Im sorry Ape but I would like to cahnge my team if possible...because I think my Mercedes entry was very rushed and not that detailed, and when thinking about how to modify it for a version 2 I decided Id have to move to 6-wide to get the detail, however this would make my MOC very similar to Dohoon Kims Mercedes Renntransporter...

So if possible could I change to Alan Mann racing, particulary the GT40s the team entered. I have built the GT40 in 6-wide and Im much more pleased with it. I will take a look at6 the transporter later. Hope You understand... :)

From what I understand, we are supposed to either join a team to create 1 of the 3 race cars, and a transporter or make a new team - am I correct? If I can start a new team, I'll choose Maserati. I'm thinking of building a Maserati transporter, as I have the parts to do it. Maybe I'll do another 250F.

Sweet! That's the 1957 Fiat 642 Bartoletti. It's the one before my 1959 Fiat 682 Bartoletti, which replaced it.

I'm not sure if it went to Maserati when Ferrari got their new bigger 682, or whether Maserati got it brand new in 1957, but either way a beautiful truck - the diagonals on the decking will be a bit more difficult than mine, but the grill will be much easier.

Cool, nice to have you on board. To log your team on the homepage your Masser will need to be Large or XL scale though (but smaller is welcome to be added too, just won't get onto the homepage listing) - how big are you building?

I was thinking 20 studs wide for the transporter. What do you consider L/XL? I'll go ahead and add my 250F, but it won't be added to the group's homepage (right?).

Needs to be no later than the 1970s. I know a bit about racers from this era, but as I missed it first time round through not being born I guess the best thing to do is talk to your Dad about the teams he remembers (as I guess you're too young too?).

I've been to a few Goodwood FOSs, Revivals, Brands Hatch classics and suchlike which is where I first saw (in real life) classic racing. Searching Google for Goodwood pics, or watching the 1966 Le Mans film (it's on youtube) will give you some great options.

Hi TiPi
Porsche had two transporters so yes, you can build another one, but you need to ask Dohoon, the team owner, first.
Your other optionis to build a transporter for another team. Porsche-Gulf and Porsche-Martini are both good options.
Remember though, that transporters needyo be at least 22 studs wide to be in the right scale (if they're trucks).
Good luck!

Welcome Thomas! : ) You've been added to the Scuderia Ferrari team. This means I've changed one of the cars to 'claimed' so that no-one else can build it.

There's no deadline (within reason), and Technic is fine : ) - although the more realistic looking your creation is the better. Once it's posted add it to the 'team vehicle created' thread. It will then be added to the homepage.

Scale: Cars need to be about 16-18 wide to be the right scale. It's a bit of an awkward scale as you need 'old' wheels to really be able to build something correctly. The best wheels are probably the old model team ones, or the Technic ones from the 1980's with solid tyres.

Sorry Dohoon and Malte; this is probably my fault as I got confused with who the team owner was (DeT or D.K).

As above though, Dohoon, if you're happy then all is well - having multiples of the same car is
1; really interesting to see how different builders tackle them, and
2; more accurate, as teams would be running 2, 3 or even 4 of the same car.

Hi Joost. Great news :D you have been added to the Alan Mann Ford team. Did you read my note to you in the 'Advice on your moc' conversation?

Ape. Officially I am Alan Mann not Cobra Ford. The history of Ford's racing is slightly complicated, Alan Mann inherited the Transporter from Cobra.

Er, I'd continue (which means someone else can build Cobra if they wish). As for what cars you transport - that's up to you as team owner : ) If a Cobra would be inaccurate then probably best to swap it for a different car

Hello C. Bomb, welcome back! : )

'70s is OK, just be sensible and don't pick a car launched in '79, because is probably won't fit in with the rest of the cars in the group. They need to be in scale with the rest, so probably 14 wide minimum from that era. You can build 10 wide and post them here, they just won't appear on the group homepage

I'm really sorry for that, I haven't read correctly the rules and I've add a car under 16 wide , I really apologize and I remove it from the group sorry.
Unfortunatly I will remove my Gulf Team from the list because I haven't enought pieces for build so big creations.


That OK - although it won't be on the main page under the creations in boxes, it can still be added to the group and be one of the creations in said boxes : )

Please feel free to add your classic racing MOCs here, whatever the scale

Hey Guys!

I am a bit new, so some questions possible.
I understand that I have to choose teams here?
Well, let's say I'd love to build a Ford GT40 in Gulf colours, my absolute favorite racing car!
But for which team do I have to choose then?
Or will I just start a new team?

In case of the last: I choose Gulf team. Love the colours of these cars.

Please answer what I gotta do!

Welcome LM.

All the comments above are correct (thanks Admins).

Gulf Racing have not yet been registered as a team, so you can register to start it and you will become team owner. To help Malte, who adds most of the pictures, if you can find a picture of the team logo, post the link to it when you start the team.

Once your team is started (by posting it in this thread), you can claim which vehicles from the team you intend to build. This stops anyone else building them.

Finally, if you wish to start a Gulf Racing Thread, you are welcome to (but it's not necessary).

Good luck!

Welcome to the group! ^^ Your teams will be added shortly no doubt.

Looking forward to seeing your entries. Please make sure you read all the rules, and if you have any questions, just ask : )

TLNIA; your team is actually 'Hudson Motor Car Company' (I think, please correct me anyone if this is inaccurate)

LM: I think your team is Team Ford/Gulf Oil, or J. W. Automotive Engineering Ltd, who ran them too.

If you'd like to build a transporter I'd suggest Googling until you find one that you like, and then asking to join that team (if the team exists already), or starting a new team so you can build it.

It's quite hard joining a team and then trying to find the vehicles involved - it's much easier the other way round! Find a vehicle, then start/join a team : )

Hi Alex. I might be wrong (if so just post a link!), but I think this 'Can-Am' Porsche is just a bodykit for road-going 914s.

This is Can-Am Racing, mostly populated by teams running McLarens, Lolas, Porsche 917s (like DeTomaso's Sunoco), Shadows, Marches etc.:

Can-Am is (was) a race series (like F1 or Indy Car), rather than a team.

Okay, well here is a link http://bowlsby.net/914/CanAm/Team914Canam.htm It still isn't the clearest, but they show it on a track, but just because a car is on a track doesn't mean is part of a race team.

I'm 99% sure the 'Can Am' 914 was just a marketing thing - a Pace Car or some-such, (Can Am cars made 1000hp and spat fire - I've seen them race in Historic Racing so can vouch for this!). I appreciate the pic is a bit misleading though (I guess that was the point of the advert!).
