  • Made a visit to @thruxtonracing at the weekend for the Easter Revival. Great to see some awesome cars out on track doing what they do best!

Production mould

Once Martlet and Crown had produced a buck of the Martlet 4ce, we worked with the team at X-sport racing in Basingstoke who have many years of expertise in building custom fibreglass bodies and race cars. Careful consideration was given to ensure both the longevity of the mould, and the construction to enable the mould to disassemble and the body to come out as one piece.

The buck (shown in the images below) was “plussed up” on any exposed edge to ensure that the product was not affected over the expected life of the mould (circa 400 bodies). No costs were spared in producing the buck and the moulds, and the finish of the bodywork in the buck pictures reflects the finish of the product when a body is pushed from the mould.

Clicking on any of the pictures will enlarge them, clicking again will fullscreen the image.
