      Supported Attribution Scratch Built Build in Progress

      I pulled this kit from my stash on May 5, 2019; the night we got home from the GSL.

      1997 reissue of the 1970 Tamiya Lola T-70 Mk III kit. It's been patiently waiting for 22 years in my stash to be built.
      I've been researching, planning and figuring all month. (Actually I was scheming a couple days before in case I didn't find a dream deal on another Caterham kit during the show/trip.)
      It will be built as a street car T-70 replica with some modern upgrades.


      I started by cleaning up the tub and main body panels.
      Lots of filling and sanding Lola T-70 Mk III to remove the twenty inch diameter ejection pin marks in the tub alone and general parting lines. But still a nicely molded kit considering its age.


      The insides of the body also needed to be addressed for the same issues.

    I actually mix the talc into the paint. I don't have a formula or ratio, just add some until it looks right. The airbrush Lola T-70 Mk III needs to be fully cleaned afterwards.

    The timing tab has been bolted to the engine.

    Oh! A process I did not imagine, thanks! I tried the "snowing" but it was awful.

    I can imagine. Probably sporadically clumpy and chunky?

    I added the oil and water plugs before the last coat of orange.

    It was already 2 or 3 years ago, I don't remember the "end result", it was just not usable, not like yours!

    The heads got the same texture treatment as the block…

    Gunze Sangyo makes some rough aqueous acrylics Lola T-70 Mk III . They have pre mixed grit. Probably too sharp grained to represent castings, but useful otherwise. My one try at airbrushing Lola T-70 Mk III it was the last try at that.Lola T-70 Mk III-0603210128-jpg

    That paint still might work for what I'm doing if a second coat of non-grit paint is shot over it.

    I finished the water pump after texturing it as well and making the aluminum mounting hardware and the plug for where the heater hose would go.
