Has There Been Any Suggestion Of A 1970's-Era Open Wheel Mod For Gpl?

Or is the open wheel interest in GPL strictly confined to the 1960's era? Enquiring minds want to know.

Although there are plenty of car models, that doesn't necessarily mean that there will be a 1970's-era open-wheel mod anytime soon. It's one thing for a modeller to create a GPL version of their favourite car. It's quite another to create a complete set of cars, test them for consistency against each other, and then produce a complete mod. I guess we will just have to wait and see what the modding community releases.

There's a section in the forum's 3d Modeling. That's where I found the link. If you go there you can see all the relative subject matter to various modeling projects.

Thanks Argyle. It's Shaun, Luigi, and me We plod along. The first 90% can be achieved quickly. That last 10% to make any of these projects GPL caliber worthy is still a ball buster.

They happen faster and faster don't they ?

But the problem is the in the details. And with open wheel models (viz CanAm & Protos) you need suspensions. MECH at great sacrifice moved and positioned all the bits and pieces of a base GPL car to properly fit the 55's. I'm not able to do that to my satisfaction with post-70 cars so the bits and pieces are part of the model.
Well, sort of except the wishbones and radius rods don't move. Not a big deal for the 70's & 80's but annoying. Also because of the larger size of the cars there are other 3do details still being worked out (like lowering the BT33.) Look below at the details on Paul's 69mod Lotus 49 and then our Lotus 72, or BT33 (but before serious detail painting.) The irony is I could post the alpha mod -it works- and it would be fun for a week, but it would not be what we've all come to expect from the mod team.

Thank you for posting those details. Please don't mistake my enthusiasm for impatience, I certainly don't want anything released until it matches the quality of other Mods.
All I've ever done for GPL is create a single set of car skins, but that took long enough. I have nothing but admiration for everyone who works on full Mods.
