Although most of my cars/builds are "hardbodies", I still have a thing for the clear Butyrate /Lexan cars that I used to build as a kid......especially if it was a model that I really loved.

This is a Lola T163 in 20thou. PETG from Truescale, and although it does not match the detail of injection moldings, they can be made to look quite nice, and I just loved this car.

Decals are from Pattos, and mirrors, driver, etc were either made or found in my parts box. Wheels/inserts are BWA.

I got a little lazy on the chassis, and decided to use a Slot-it motor pod.....a deviation from pure scratch I know, but it worked out well. I did have to utilize a motor with side mounted brushes (Cartrix experimental) in order to have clearance.

Cheers

Clean..? that is antiseptic.

The chassis is nice but you have put some real magic into that body.

I love it.

Lovely work Chris,

I especially like the detail work on the chassis.

Would you be able to advise on what the chassis weighs please?

Chris - thanks!!!!


Simply awesome car........

So will post the pic of the 163 version I want to build, thought I would start with the same body you use, cast it and then modify it - one for the new year me thinks...

I just think this car is beautiful!!! (the M6 Ford ain'bad either)



I ahve noticed that this acr changed at virtually every race - I just love the way the rear deck looks on this version.... if anyone els has pics of this car - they would be appreciated....
