here is my vision of Innes Ireland's Lotus at Charade in July 1958
The car is based on the MMK model. I need to fix the front lights covers and it will ok at my sense .
Hope you'll enjoy it .
about the colour .......
after looking at many pics of Ireland's cars , most of them were light " water" green ....( like on the Fly's Ferrari 250 GTO for example)
I do not use an aerograph and it's not so easy to find the right shade of green , and colour pictures are very rare .
There was an excellent reference of this particular green that's is not available anymore in cars paint bombs ( for Citroen....2CV !!! )
so I've try to find the most approaching shade in the stores around me....
I think the green was more light on this Lotus but ....Sorry for this , it'll be better when I'll use my aerograph ....
I guess I shouldn't be so surprised, your work is always amazing. What a fantastic model though, I love the eleven and you have got the stance and everything so right!! Thanks for the great photos. Now, if I could find this model for sale, at a reasonable price, I would try to emulate your lead.
