Haha, got your attention now...

These F1 cars are all looking stunning and I'm getting really interested in building one now. I mean, how hard can they be? There's less chassis than a GT car... lol

Big descision is what to go for... I need something easy, 'cos it'll be my second and a half scratchbuild ever. I would like to be able to use existing stuff, rather than have to go out and buy a whole load of new bits, so is there a catagory which will allow size wheels?

Erm... basically just need a load of help so any info that you guys can provide would be great.

Thanks a lot!


PS. Doesn't have to be a Lotus...

Well, you did say EASY.

I also recommend the MRRC BRM P261 kit. The chassis is a reinterpertation of the old Mono F1. AND it projects below the body, and it needs a lot of work to make work.

However, it is an easy way to LEARN about the working problems in this size of car. You can build it run it in less than an hour and use it as a self teaching aid. In the U.S. it is only about 40bucks.
