Here's what's taking up my spare time now..A Tyrrell 003... It's one of my three favorite F1 cars of all time so I'm a little over the moon about it. It has lots of parts that currently don't fit as well as I would like but it's nearly there.

(If anyone "needs" a Lotus, I have an extra!)

Here some pictures of the 6mm aluminium tubes, I polished and glued with shoe-goo. Fit perfect on the body.




And an overall picture, that is now outdated as I added some details in the meantime.

Default Check this out!

This is a trailer for what I assume is to be a great new racing sim with vintage and newer F1 cars...

Possibly the understatement of the year! Let me just say it's refreshing to see F1 cars without peni (plural for penis) on them. It's like a bad, bad dream...

I think I would possibly have to buy a sim for the first time to play this game as it looks so awesome. The vintage from '60's to current is incredible !

Default Virtua Racing...

I think I can take credit for incorporating 60's and modern day F1 cars in the same game. Waaaay back in the early 90's I was the lead artist and did additional game design for the Virtua Racing port for the Sega Saturn.....Back in the days before texture mapping, real time lighting and normal maps; solid colored, low polygon models were the bees knees! UGH...we've come a long way.
