I finished repainting my cars. They went from this:



to this:




I'm thrilled with how they turned out. Being able to get the helmets right for the drivers really capped it off! Now to get somebody in my gaming group to help me give them a spin!

Very nicely done.
I have plans too to buy some cars and paint them, but which cars are the three different robot cars?

If anybody wants F1 cars in this size, they should contact Eureka Minatures.
I had a sample of three cars sent to me for free.
One of the cars is at this size which also fits Formula De.
The two other cars I've already uploaded pictures of here in the gallery.

If you can't explain it simply, you don't understand it well enough.

Being second is to be the first of the ones who lose.

Thanks!

It is simply a choice of the players. It Isn't too hard to pick the cars apart by driver, so the robots can be assigned to any car. For some people, it might be prudent to paint the spoiler a certain color to tell them apart easier. If I had more of these (and I really, really wish I did!!), I would have done the entire field leaving the robots to the Minardis and Larousses!

How much are the Eureka cars? They look fat, but at this scale, that doesn't matter much. I know the Shapeways cars cost an absolute fortune from what I saw on their site. Time to get that 3D printer soon!

Only two teams as robots?
You need to replace purple, yellow and black!

I have no price yet and they are not on their website.
The guy who sent them to me is on holiday until the 26 of April.

You can play the advanced game of 4 people with 10 cars total, so I think I will be fine, hehehehe....

Very very Nice, Team Ski! You paint the sponsors??? [ahuahuahh] Great!

I have difficulty using the REFUELING CHITS because it's not have same color of the painted cars. I will make the new refueling chits or found a way to mark the pit stop to each painted car.

I would go for new refueling chits with pictures of the cars. Should be easy to find some useful pictures on the web.

These particular ones are long out of production, unfortunately. There are others, however, as mentioned above.
