My latest large scale build...

Recommended Posts

Here is my build of the Tamiya 1/12 Lotus 49b. This is the old motorized release, so the engine is a bit overscale. I built it as the car driven by Walker Racings Jo Siffert. Siffert ran an early 49b without the nosevents, narrow front wings and a shorter rear wing. Intake mesh is from MFH and decals are from Indycals.

First up was to get rid of the nose vents and narrow the wings. I backed the openings with card and filled them with glazing putty.

Here the left wing has been modified:

I used the front supports on the rear wing and removed a further 1/2in off the bottom. The finished product:
