As i said in the build thread, i'm slightly peeved that the stripes don't line up even though being measured and checked, but as explained the front suspension posed problems, the person who tried to build it before had obviously got to the front suspension (destructions part 2) and had ended up trying to force the bits together thus creating weak spots and had cracked a few bits.
So .....
repaired front suspension, made up new bits as per needed
added harness and detailed the cockpit further by adding pedals etc
changed the brake lines for thinnner "in scale" material (thanks again Al), and added the solid pipe where needed.
most of the graphics have had to be touched up as the decals were that fragile.

here you go .....

I think you did a grand job Colin. Tamiya 1967 Lotus 49 ... 1/12 scale 1705482731

I know you did it as the test car and I think you achieved just the right patina for it, even, dare I say it, down to the slightly mis-aligned stripe!!! (So there!!!)

Well done mate.

Awesome looking build. Decals look very good - often the lighter color lets the darker undercolor show through. These look bright and bold.

Nice work all around, Colin.

Just a tremendous job Colin.

I never realized they ran the radiator line on the outside of the car...
