Building the Chaparrals in 1/24 Scale
by Henry Trent
This collection includes Chaparrals 2A through 2H. 2G and 2J are on the way.
Chaparral 2A, Sebring 1965
This model began as a Cox slot car body. I added a Modelers interior and wheels and opened up the body for the exhausts, which are made from aluminum tubing. Decals are from Patto’s Place.
Chaparral 2C, Nassau 1965
The 2C body is from the LS kit. I opened the body panels and added mesh screens.
Chaparral 2D, Daytona 1966
Based on the Monogram kit, the early 2D also has wheels and tires from the Fisher kit. The intake stacks are from the Revell parts pack.
Chaparral 2D, Nurburgring 1966
This late version 2D is from the Modelers kit, built out of the box.
