Re: Speaking of stockcars…sharing a trick

The other guys already answered your question.  On the Mopac Sunshine Model, Westerfield and the Rock Express stockcar there’s no vertical surface for the horizontal wood slats to glue against. If you glue them to the end of the car you run the risk of someone picking the car up and popping the glue joint loose.  By gluing the 1” x 10” inside it gives a shelf for the horizontal shapes to butt up against for extra strength.

Charlie, I've built maybe a dozen resin stockcar kits, but gotta ask, what's a floating slat?
