Vacuum formed windscreens for the IMC Lotus 38


Recommended Posts

Good morning guys. So, I'm attempting to build the IMC '65 winning Jim Clark Lotus 38. The kits a mess. Builds more into a toy. Just about everything will have to be scratch built. The bulbous body is fairly corrected now including a scratch built nose. The kit glass is also bulbous. Been working on the glass for a few days now. Not working out too well. Does anyone out there know of someone creating a corrected vacuum formed windscreens for this kit. Thank you in advanced.

If anybody did, it would be Indycals. They make an upgrade kit for the AMT Lotus 29, but nothing I can see for the Lotus 38.

I have the later Testors re-issue of the IMC kit. The windshield is actually a two part unit - kind of a windshield within a windshield. It doesn't look too bad in the kit I have - fairly thin, in fact, but not quite scale thickness obviously. It might be possible to use the kit windshield as a template to vacuform new glass over.
