Hello All,

Now my - Lotus Elite - is finished.
Based on a -FPF- kit i realised that little sportscar.
The model showes the -Le Mans- version of 1959 driven by P.Lumsden/ P.Riley.
The chassis is done by myself using a motor amount of a -MRRC- part to
built in the small - Mabuchi- FK 050 - in front position, spareparts by -slot.it, lightingsystem by -Overdrive,
A set of wonderful wheels from P.Seager/Thomas

Sketch chassis















best regards

Beautiful work Claus, I'm very jealous. I'm currently working on my version of this same body and thought I was ready to paint it. I've already built mine once but after several races and some over excited driving it was in need of a repaint, so I thought I would try and improve my original work which I have achieved but you have raised the bar and made me want to make mine better!

Thanks,

Pete

Lovely work Claus. The fit and finish is excellent and I really like how you have the body sitting on the chassis - the wheels fill the wheel arches beautifully!

Regards,
Brad

That's a real thing of beauty. I've always been fascinated by the Elite and you've done that little jewel justice. Super job and thanks a lot for sharing it with us. Really brilliant stuff.

Yes, that is a jewel of a little car. And I like your sketch too - that would look good in a frame on the wall.

Hello All,

Thanks a lot for your friendly compliments !!

When i started working on the -Elite-project- i thought the model would be
a little bit easier to realize.................

Cheers

That is a beautiful car Claus.

This in my opinion is how a well built car should look. I think that the FPF Elite was one of the best kits which this company made and I think your finished car is also the best I have seen. Well done!

Peter.
