      This is a super shells Lotus 25 body married to a simple scratch built brass and piano wire chassis.  The decals applied to this body are from a 1965 Indianapolis Lotus 38.

      This is a 1.5L car, therefore it is set up with a BWA motor, geared 10P x 23.

      chas 2

      I wasn’t satisfied with the first paint, so the body was soaked in super clean overnight, scrubbed clean and remanded, then repainted.

      Looks good JMSracer! Is that the transmission piece that comes with the shell or did you modify something? :good:

      Looks fantastic Jim. Nice work! :good:

      This morning I saw a neighbor talking to her cat. It was obvious she thought her cat understood her. I came into my house, told my dog..... we laughed a lot.
      Even though I may be new at this myself. How can I help you build your car?

      The transmission comes with the body, it is one piece and must be painted silver.  I have attached a photo of the kit.  In this photo I have painted the body yellow and taped the centre line prior to painting the body green.

      The photo below highlights the kit as it comes, prior to painting.
