  1. 2018-10-26 I thought, i can do the trick as well. Ready 4 paint!
  2. 2018-10-24 I made the side panel to look like if it is wrapped over the floor panel. Makes it easier to paint, cause side panel will be green and floor panel will be silver. Even if not visible when the model is finished, at least i know its there!
  3. 2018-10-21 re-did the stance to give it a little rake front: lowered rear: raised and widened the track plenty of work though: make longer damper and coils cause a spacer on the axle did not look nice. cut off and re-glue front hub. spacers on the rear wheels. much more happy now!
  4. 2018-10-20 Stance-check Verdict: rear sits too low, needs to be raised. 1 scale inch (i.e. 1mm) should do. And i also need to widen the rear track, maybe about the same amount. But it does already look like a Lotus Seven! from another angle
  5. 2018-10-19 Front cycle wing is done, rear one is in the pipeline
  6. thank you for the question. i glued it on the sheet styrene you already can see in pthe picture. after the glue is dry it holds shape and i can remove the wheel. i can then cut it off the sheet styrene, cutting sharply on the outside and leaving about 2 mm on the inside. then i turn it around and repeat the whole process. you will see the result in my next post.
  7. 2018-10-17 I finished the major body panel i started with last week and also the panels for the trunk. Now its time to make the fenders, starting with the front one.
  8. 2018-10-10 Started to make some funny looking part from 0.5 mm sheet styrene. For some reason this "thing" seems to fit perfectly to the right side of the frame.
  9. 2018-09-26 still unfinished on my bench not much progress just messed around with some details lost my modeling mojo hope to find it soon to finish making parts and start painting.
  10. 2018-09-12 Just some small progress: i added some more panels to the nose cone and then i made a hood and cheat louvred it using a left over part from a porsche 911 kit. Second pic is stolen from the web cause in my 911 chassis there is a 426 hemi sitting where this part originally was.
  11. 2018-09-05 I started with the cheat for the louvres on the hood, looks like it will work:
  12. 2018-09-04 Nose Cone - done. The missing part on the left half indicates that i am building a cutaway. Next on to the hood, i think i might have found a cheat for the louvres. I will find out ...
  13. 2018-08-31 Making the internal structure for the nose cone. Not completely done yet, but really happy with the result. It's beginning to look like something
  14. 2018-08-28 Windshield V2.0 turned out really good, especially compared to V1.0. This time i could not mess it up with superglue, cause the frame is a 3 layer sandwich design and the window is not glued in the frame. I'm very happy with the result, next on to the nose cone.
  15. 2018-08-24 After a major fail with the first windscreen i took a much more sophisticated approach for my second attempt and succeded. The frame is a 3 layer compound from 0.5 mm styrene, where the middle layer is a friction larger so the clear styrene is held by the 2 outside layers without glue. Further more i managed to solve the steering box which i had put away for several times cause i did not find an acceptable solution. Also made the seat, scuttle, first panels for the driver side, front anti roll bar and some mega cool trumpets for the SU carbs.
  16. 2018-08-15 The frame is fully strengthend now and the parts made become more and more, but the road to the finish does not seem to be shorter.
  17. Yeah, it does. Hard to say how it will turn out in the end at this stage, but it will be nice.
  18. 2018-08-08 I made a radiator with an electric fan, the complete exhaust, gear lever with linkage and i added plenty of cross member (black) to the frame to form the transmission tunnel. Progress is getting slower with all the details you have to take into consideration when designing everything by yourself.
