Lotus 56B Turbine Indy

Recommended Posts

While I was doing research on the 1/43rd scale Lotus 56 I pulled this from my stash.  I decided to build it too.  This is the old MPC kit in 1/25th scale.  It will essentially be a curbside so that the body will fit better than having the top sections removable, but I'll build all the internal stuff too. 

I built up the insides, engine and suspension and was able to make it a standalone subassembly so the seam on the nose could be filled.  Most of the parts are chrome plated so they were stripped first.

Glad to see you filled the nose seam, of course. It's actually not hard to make it removable (and prototypically correct) by making a cut on the underside. 

There's actually enough flex in the bottom/nose that I didn't need to cut the bottom at all.  But then it only has to go together once.
