Hi guys,

I've been working on and off on a brand new Lotus 48 car model for the last couple of months, with the aim of producing a more accurate car shape both on the inside and on the outside. The curent model is based on the Lotus 33 F1 car but a lot of the visual cues are more similar to the Lotus 43 and 49 car models, even though the overall dimensions are closer to the 33. Combining all these features, I've been able to combine and reshape parts of the GPLEA Lotus 43 and 49 to fit onto our F2 48. The result is a much sleeker looking car, more in line to what I was seeing on pictures of the real car. These are the new features implemented so far:

- New car model (based on Lotus 43)
- New cockpit model (based on Lotus 49)
- New textures (based on Lotus 43 GPLEA)
- New cockpit textures (based on Jackseller and original F2 texture artist Remy's work)

I'll also try and implement fixes for the gap in the front wheels and G.Spinnings new driver suits.

I'm very happy with the car so far, the engine bay could use some small improvements still but depending on the time available I'll leave that for another time. On the cockpit side, I've made the cockpit longer, narrower and higher and the steering wheel bigger and higher resulting in a more accurate feel of how small the cockpit was.

Still a lot to do but hope you guys will like it.

Tommie.

Can't wait! Thank you Tommie, it looks great :) can you post a couple of pics of the real car also, please?

PS if you have some time to spare remember to fix the F2 Dino engine :) sorry couldn't resist, you know how much of a Ferrari fanboy I am :P

I agree with Leon, that the Ferrari is most in need of attention.  The Lotus cockpit shown looks more accurate than the original.  The exterior needs more work.  It would make more sense to fix your own model first.

hmm, I wouldn't go for the GPLEA textures, the real color is darker and a bit more bluish. The same goes for the lotus 43 and 49 ;)

MHO :)

You're right, I'll tweak the GPLEA textures a bit, they are slightly too green :) .

People, when it comes to critiquing colours you need to remember that we are looking at a computer monitor, NOT a printed photograph.
