Caterham R500 Race Cars - Custom Build - Tamiya 1/12

Recommended Posts

Based on the glorious 1/12 Tamiya Caterham kit, the only part of the original kit is really just the chassis and body panels (yellow and blue) - just about everything else is scratch built, including 3D printing recently - commissioned by a very patient chap in 2002, lots learnt since!

 

Totally finished now - so on to the pictures!

The WIP build can be found here:

Magnificent - both of them! Quite possibly two of the best car models I've ever seen! Really enjoyed following your wip thread and seeing all the brilliant detailing you added!

Incredible models, a rare degree of realism on both. I really thought the first photo was of your reference car - and I'm not easy to fool!

Absolutely stunning, hats off to you and also the very patient chap who commissioned the build. 2002, well worth the wait.
