    Lotus 30

    I sent my Lotus 40 away to the UK, so I built a Lotus 30 to replace it. Backdated the lotus 40 shell.

    This is a model of the 3rd place finisher driven by Jim Clark @ Riverside

    Again Gift Card Chassis

    Sure, I will sell or trade them. I just don't want to commercialize this for myself. You know what they say. If you want to destroy your hobby, turn it into a business. I have done that twice before.

    IF anyone wants a resin body of any of the cars I have shown here just PM me and we can horse trade, I typically do about 6 bodies everytime I go into the casting mode. So I have on hand spares for all of these cars.

    Ferrari 250 SWB

    The lastest car I am working on.

    Gift Card Chassis( Sidewinder) Turned aluminum rims with Photo etch inserts. I was able to find a photo etch detail kit for this car, so it has a nice grill and good set of light.

    Still needs an interior tray, decals and rear exhaust.

    Well done on the weight loss Dan, but I put on weight sitting at my bench!

    Regards, Lloyd.

    LOL. Two more cars. The SWB Ferrari GTO and the Corvette Grand Sport, then I have to get busy on the honey do list. Well maybe three, I have a Can Am Lola already cast waiting on a chassis and paint.

    Funny I have lost 40 pounds since Christmas, so my wife is being sympathetic. I tell her if I keep my hands busy building cars, they stay out of the fridge and it is helping me reach my goal. 10 more pounds to go and I will be they same weight I was at when I was 30. Blood pressure is way down, and I am generally feeling pretty energetic for an old guy. Packing that extra weight takes its toll and I am glad I have shed it.

    Cheers
