Lotus 49 MFH 1/12th scale.
I was fortunate enough to get the chance to build one of these incredible kits.
It wasn't without its challenges though. The decals especially those around the nose cone were difficult to apply being thick and the wrong shape. In the end I removed them and painted the yellow sections. The nose wouldn't fit over all the detail and I had to remove a lot of the resin to reduce the thickness of the casting. I couldn't get the inner screen to fit in the correct place on top of the body and settled for fitting it flush behind the edge of the body.
I added almost a thousand .60mm resin and foil punched rivets as well as some tiny alloy tube fittings to the injection lines, instrument panel connections and low tension wiring to the ignition system. I also added a loose, baggy finish to the seat from Miliput and PVA glue.
I spent fifteen months on and off building this kit.
Thanks for looking.
