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.
