About The Project

The project was an early collaboration between ZZ & AZ. The car featured belongs to Alain Schlesinger and is raced in historic racing. A member of the National Slot Car Collectors Club (NSCC) had selected the car as the subject of a Limited Edition model to promote his business. Members of the club were invited to watch the car race to co-incide with the model launch. Unfortunately, at the meeting before the planned launch the car was involved in a big accident.

This inspired the creation of a diorama of the scene based on photgraphs of the accident. It was re-created using a 1/32 scale Scalextric model, track, scenery and figures. The grass slope is a Subbuteo (table football) pitch and the sky a suitably coloured towel.
