Hi

This Tamiya Lola I did a few years ago, It´s ment to be the Bonnier B.O.A.C 500 car from -68.
There are some minor differences from the real car but I can live with that.
Jo himself is made of different Tamiya drivers, the head comes from the Matra kit.
The decals is from the spare box and the #2 decals is made by a modelling friend in the US ( Thanks Stu ! )
Detailed with hoses,wires and connectors.

More later
Thomas

That yellow really pops. What did you use to keep the blue from bleeding through?

Hi
I used an ordinary automotive primer , don´t remember the brand. The yellow is Humbrol 69 that I got in a spraycan.

Hey Thomas, sorry I missed this earlier mate.
That is a GREAT build up of a sweet looking car. Nice to see it wearing different livery to what is the norm. B) The driver is a neat touch. ;)
