Andretti Lola T-91 Indycar 1/32 Scale

Here are the specs:
1/32 scale Revell Lola T-91 with a Chevy Indy engine Snap Kit.
It is modeled after Mario Andretti's 1991 Indy ride. the kit comes with stickers for decals, so I swapped those out for Indycals 93 Newman Haas sheet, with some graphics from the Andretti scheme and some from the Mansell scheme (thanks, Michael for the help and the great products!). A few of the decals didn't fit quite right, most likely because of the dimensions of the kit, so some came from the 1/20 Tamiya Newman Hass Lola. I also made a few decals myself to account for some differences between the '91 and '93 cars, but there wasn't much. Even with that, it's not 100% accurate graphics-wise, but it's pretty close and there are very few internet references to prove it wrong!
I also used Scale Motorsports 1/24 scale carbon fiber on the chassis pan, radiator shrouds, and cockpit. Indycals used for the tire decals. The steering wheel is highly modified, and the belt decals were home made. I replaced the drive shafts with aluminum tubing, painted with a mix of clear Tamiya acrylics. The radiator plumbing is solder with painted Tamiya tape hoses and aluminum tape clamps. The electronic box on the right side is scratch-built, modeled after actual components seen on John Andretti's 91 Pennzoil Lola. fuel lines are bead wire and Pro Tech with detail master and home-made fittings.
