Lotus 88 1/10 RC car - WIP

I've to pay mt "debt" with Mastrecar, who was so kind to pass me his excellent work with Rhino.

Target is to have a RC version of the Lotus88 in 1/10 scale...

Step one for me was to make a model of the real chassis. This is the Tamiya F103, which is probably one of the oldest F1 made. Is in the market from more than 15 years....Always the same...



Shame for me, I work professionally (well... somehow...) with SolidEdge, who doesn't like surfaces, so I've to "solidize" the surfaces, which in most of the case is easy but nose area....look like some one chipped it...



Note: I'm mad for this car since (his) day 1... more than 30 years ago....

Well...

Sorry Mastercar...

I'm extremely slow... but...



My Lotus88 start to be real.

After the 3d, the next step was to have real stuff to use as base for the mould.

I've used mu waterjet machine to cut plastic slices.

This is the result... Now, next step will be glue all the slices together, buy a ton of putty and start to make it smooth...

Even in this form it looks promising.

Thanks again for the original path!
