Hanna Lola - '88 Indy 500

Recommended Posts

Mario Andretti's ride in 1988

Model is based on the AMT Amway/Speedway Lola Cosworth.

Built straight out of the box with the exception of the IndyCal decals and stencil used to paint the 'Goodyear Eagles' on the tires

What color of red did you use to paint the Hanna Car Wash Indy car of Mario Andretti? I am planning to do the same build using the Amway car, too.  And what did you use to make the wheel covers for the rear wheels?

Really great to see the March and Lola side by side. Both very good looking models. I would sure be nice to have a kit of the current Indy cars.

Gosh that was a long time ago.

I think I used Tamiya's TS-49 Bright Red. The wheel covers are from one of the Indy Car kits AMT put out way back then.

Thanks for the info on the paint and the wheel disc.  I got my decals yesterday, but I think I am going to use Tamiya's Italian red. And I have the Danny Sullivan Penske car with the wheel disc covers. Thanks again, your build is awesome.
