I hope you like my two Lotus. Both vintage Pactra vac formed body shells with modern era Plafit chassis. Both cars run smooth and fast with very similar performance.
Interiors scratch built from foam board with vintage Cox drivers, engine details etc from Aluminium tube and brass wire.

Two beauties....a great joining of old school bodies and new school chassis.

I would like a decent shell of a Lotus 23 in 1/32 scale someday.

Looking here again and admiring your work. The use of Plafit chassis will also stop the dreaded curling under of lexan bodies.

Very nice viewing, thank you.

Thanks for your kind comments, and I do agree the Plafit approach is great and as you say the foam rubber method of body mounting stops the body curling under and losing shape. I find with these old shells the way to re-shape them is to heat them with my wifes hair dryer, mold them into shape with fingers when hot then shock them quickly under a cold water tap. This method seams to get them back into shape and holds them that way.
I haven't been able to have much time at the work bench lately as that horrible word 'work' has been getting in the way, although I do try to keep my eye on the FOLM forum from time to time.
Regards
