Amazing work wtcc! I hope you're building two of them because that is way too nice to scratch up

Kudos to Manny for his efforts in producing the body. Incredible.

I hope I don't offend any of the F1 purists with the Eagle livery on the wrong body... but we can't have an all Lotus parade at the first VF1 race

madjack, you haven't offended anyone....that is a beautiful job you did on that Eagle!! I love the detail, especially the work you did on the engine! Would you please post more and bigger pictures of your Eagle body?

I love Lotus, but I want to see other F1 cars of that era too, such as Eagle, Ferrari, Honda, BRM, Brabham, etc. Can't wait for F1 Paintlab to produce the decals for these cars!

By the way: who wants to make intake trumpets should look at a 1$ store for a pen set of four (should be 1$, take two ) and then just use the tips.

Next week I will make some stickers to round this thing up.

wtcc, the item# for those mirrors from ABC Hobby USA is: 66201

They are out of stock at the moment, but they emailed me to say they should be back in stock in 10-14 days

That is THE best detail I've seen yet on the Lotus and the Ford engine!! How did you get it to look so real? We need a tutorial from you on this?

Thanks for the compliment, Manny's body went together very well. I've sourced most of the needed items to complete the body, just don't want to rush the driver figure, etc. I'll post some bigger pictures once it's been completed.

Rumor has it we'll see a couple of Honda's in the near future

Maybe an RA300? Looks like this could be adapted to the body:

Help needed urgently:

I have a TRG111 and need all 3 kinds of rod ends

The rod ends I got in the box seem to be the wrong ones and don't fit correctly

Does anyone know where I can source these within a week as I want to start racing on the weekend of 13/14 April

Im located in Melbourne, Australia

Thanks in advance

Someone told me that Manny is currently out of bodies to sell. Is that true? I also read that F1 Paintlab was planning on putting together a package deal that would include the Lotus VF1 body and F104 chassis; so I was waiting for that to happen. I still want the Lotus body, but read here that Manny may be making a Honda body too. Is the Lotus body still going to be available? I hope so!

I think the reference to Honda was in someone painting one up as a Honda.

As for if Manny is out of bodies to sell...I don't know on that but keep in mind he is a small operation so be patient...its worth it

Oh, I'm in no rush with this, I was just concerned that he might not have the Lotus body available anymore. I was afraid that maybe I waited too long.

I can be patient, as I'm still waiting for the package that F1 Paintlab mentioned. I hope it will include the decal set too!

I do know he was going to have bodies ready today if I understood him correctly.
