1/24 Lotus 30

Recommended Posts

This is my first build in quite a while a Lotus 30 body from the 60's on an MJK GT chassis the original chassis was too badly damaged to fix (so far) the body needed lots of putty and sanding so it's a bit rough

A good result, mate.

What wheel inserts will you use.

I have 1/24 kit wheels similar to american racers to sand down a bit and black wash. It's good to build slot cars again after building rc planes for a while

Well done, and that's an amazing shine you have on the paint...

I used tamiya clear enamel as I couldn't find acrylic but have some now. Mixed one part paint to two parts thinners and sprayed at around fifteen psi. I'm no great painter but very happy with the result
