Thanks to everyone for the compliments! I had fun building the Lotus! And a big thanks to Manny for the body!
I may work on the "peak" or pretend that it is Jimmy's old Bell
The front suspension is an F103 with the FGX steering knuckles, axles, and disk brakes. Yes, it's on an F104 chassis. THe head is from a Tamiya kit
The goggles are from a Williams Bros. Pilot P/N 17500
I made all the decals from logos I either found or "massaged" from the 'net. Printed with an ink-jet on clear vinyl. I backed most of them by sticking them to white trim monocote.
I like the treaded tires too. The choice of wheels is limited, but much closer than slicks and modern wheels.
The sixties was a time of great changes in F1, 1.5 to 3.0 liter motors, widening tires, wings on struts to front mounted diaplanes and rear wings over the engine. It would be difficult to figure out rules and make cars look close to "right" for more than a year or two at a time!
I'll try to get more stuff pictured/described on here but I gotta race some too! Just not neat F1 cars! VTA iis the next best!
