Many thanks for kind comment and following guys! Bodywork will be one of the final steps i think, actually it is too cold to do paint job, will wait a bit more and hope that the temperature will raise again, otherwise i have to heat the room cause i need some of the parts. Lets wait and see if weather changes a bit better.

Realized i wrote everytime commend instead of comment! Lol Sorry for bad english! 8)

Some more progress on the Lotus is finished or even prepaired.
First i finished the undertray with CF work and flat clear. Next was putting on bare metal foil and some heat shields which i made from aluminium sheet, detailed everything with some etched nuts.

Next is some scratch build fittings for coolers, intercoolers, airbox and so on. Tiny stuff again, soldered from brass rods and pipes. I reworked the coolers and changed the plumbing with its straps, the fittings for overflow are missing in this picture. Painted the part for the sidepod silver, but still not happy with it, i guess i will do it again. Last i painted some bottom support brackets. Most of this parts will be installed once Tub, engine and undertray is glued together, some engine plumbing has to be done infront of that too. Sorry for crappy pics, the cam is sometimes not working like i want it to. :?

Finaly i made a dry set up with everything together to see where i can get into trouble with adding more details, Snorkel on gearbox is installed and i scratch build some connectors with wiring for the injection nozzles. Exhaustpipes and Turbos are still in work, needs paint and detailing.

Thanks for watching!



Simply amazing! What kind of CF did you use on the undertray? Looks great! Can`t wait to see all those tiny parts on the model!
