FOUND : Ex Lesney Factory, Rochford....Lanechanger and spares.  Also later type race and chase controllers with black switch. Found in a PP2000 set

 

Tyres:
Currently working on tyres, need to have a good soft grade silcon tube in black. Looking at getting Front tyres (2 sizes) and rear tyres made.

 

Powertrack amazing 6v Collector Boxes

I have started to remake these boxes, I have plastic caps remade by a local plastic mouldings company and the artwork for all the plinths and the cardboard housing I have available too.

The Clear plastic CAPs remade by a friend at a local plastics moulding company.

It took quite a few tries and also different materials used to perfect the moulded CAP.

These CAPs directly replace the original so can be used in an original box too

This is a remade box. Folded and glued from a single sheet of card.

These boxes are the best way to store and display the cars.

These box designs were also used on the LaneChanger cars.

They are stackable just like the original and are based on the same graphics and chequered base Plinth with Model details. I think the results are great.

 

Plinth design is basically a chequered base.

 

Its a great design, which they further changed for the LaneChanger cars

 

The artwork for the cardboard Powertrack box. Careful cutting here!!

Once created it all folds together like the original and glued along a single edge.

These are available for sale in the Sales Section. Made to Order.
