Orso Posted March 14, 2022 Share Posted March 14, 2022 (edited) I know that I will regret this. I started on a Tamiya Lotus 25. But as usual I can't build something out of the box. I decided to build mine as a car without the yellow stripe from the 1962 season. The thing that worried me was that I meed a new windscreen for this. It took many attempts but I think I have a template for it now. I'm not sure this was a good idea or if I'm just going to ruin a kit. I started by filling the openings in the sides. A couple of incisions with the saw was needed to make the upper part narrower at the back. But the engine cover must also be higher and I'm not sure how to fix it. I will improvise. I made a couple of cuts and added material to it. I found a good side view in a book and my conversions so far match the image very well. The nose should be a little longer though so I started by adding plastic to the front,. That gave me some material to reshape. I think I got the basic shape of the car now. Time to start scratching some Weber carburettors. Edited April 24, 2022 by Orso 8 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
