Hi everyone,

My last finished project before the season starts! I just finished up the Tamiya Lotus 25. I finished it in the scheme Jim Clark won the 1963 South African Grand Prix by over a minute with. The Tamiya kit was a delight. The only problems I had were a badly fitting engine cover and a ruined first finish with a TS-13/old decal phenomenon. Thankfully IndyCals came to the rescue and they were fantastic. I used Tamiya TS-43 for the green and a combination of Alclad and Vallejo acrylics for the rest. This was my first time using Future for the clear - it was amazing. As always, comments and critiques are greatly appreciated.

Jake

Classic car, classic kit, classy build. Lovely :) and doesn't it look so small against the McLaren.

Your build is amazing, Jake. You got all the intake trumpets straight (which I know takes some effort), I like the different silvers you used on the powertrain for effect, and the quick-release PE parts on the rear cowl, and, the dash gauge wires are a nice touch. She looks great next to your other 1/20 cars too. Really shows off how the sport has evolved.

Congratulations!
Cheers, Chris
