  1. Hello With much reluctance, I'm selling the set of Lotus World magazines I've collected over the past eighteen months. If you are interested, the listing can be found on Ebay here: Please Note: Volume 1, Issue 1 (April 1982) has been printed double sided on A3 paper from a PDF document, but all other 95 issues are genuine and original. They are in Good to Excellent, fully readable condition, with all pages intact. I am also open to offers if you would like to buy them from me direct. The reason for the sale is to fund
  2. Thanks very much. If you are interested, I would be happy to send you a PDF copy of the first chapter covering the 1983 season. If you would like to read this (in exchange for some general feedback) just send me a private message containing your e-mail address, as I'm not sure if PDFs can be sent through the forum. kind regards Neil
  3. Thanks very much for providing clarification, it's good to know I'm not missing out on anything. Thanks to fellow forum member Mark Blanchard, I currently own all but a handful of issues of 'Lotus World', and was very kindly sent scans of the Team Lotus related info from the issues I don't have, so I believe I am sorted in that respect, but thanks for the offer. I don't presently have the race report card information I was sent to hand, but I believe I have scans of most, if not all of them (I will have to double check though). Team Lotus and Formula One fans on various forums h
  4. Hello While carrying out research for my book on Team Lotus covering the 1983-1994 period, I was very kindly sent scans of some team promotional printed material which included race report cards from the 1990 and 1991 seasons (please see examples below): I was wondering if anyone knew if these were produced right through to 1994, as they provide far more detailed information about the race weekends (from a Team Lotus perspective) than the comparable issue of Autosport or Motorsport magazine. Thanks Neil White
  5. Hello I am currently undertaking additional research for the book I am writing about Team Lotus covering the seasons 1983-1994. I recently came across a selection of issues of Lotus World magazine hosted on the fantastic Elio De Angelis tribute website ( which contained some fascinating information that I wasn't previously aware of. To avoid missing out on further important information, I am now on the lookout for the remaining issues of the magazine and was wondering if anyone either had scans of issues or copies for sale. Thanks Neil Whi
  6. Thanks for your comments Buddsy and Dixie237 I've used surface modelling in the past, most notably in Rhino when I designed the overcab pod of the current Endeavour model during my time at RS Motorhomes. Back in 2002-2003 I also created a Rhino model of an Esprit re-design that was the final year major project of my Transport Design degree course: For my Lotus 112 model, I chose solid lofting in Solidworks as I find it easier and quicker to go back to the sketches that make up the solid for tweaking the shape.
  7. A couple more images of my 3D model...
  8. Thanks very much for the kind comments. In answer to your questions, the model was made using the 3D package Solidworks. it was constructed by creating sketches on various planes and then either extruding them (the rear wing for example) or sweeping between them (the chassis tub) to create solid objects. The solids were then cut away to create the parts such as the cockpit. It was initially built up as a half, then once all the details were added, mirrored. As I only had those two grainy images of the wind tunnel model to refer to, there was a LOT of trial and error to
  9. As requested Stuart, please find some more images below...
  10. Hello Over the past year or so I have been building a 3D model of the unraced Lotus Type 112. I plan to feature this in the book I have been writingin my spare time since 2012; tentatively titled "The Chequered Years - The Team Lotus Story 1983-1994). Please find below a rendering of the 3D model in front of Ketteringham Hall, a superb photo of the hall kindly taken by fellow forum member Jonny Stocken (aka Bravo73). If you would like to see more images of the car, please let me know and I will post them. I would particularly appreciate feedback on the livery, as this i
  11. Thanks everyone for all the info and kind comments. After seeing 1994's superb images of the 107C I have tweaked the shade of green on my illustration slightly, as well as adding the headrest and gearchange blister (see below): I would love to do an illustration of the 102C with the Isuzu engine. I know there were bodywork changes to accommodate the engine, but I've no idea what they were, so anything I created would be pure guesswork unfortunately. Also, here's the Type 103 in front of Ketteringham Hall. I e-mailed the hall asking if they had any high quality images of the b
  12. Hello Vulcan Grey, thanks for your message and the wonderful photos. The Tommy Hilfiger logo on the side of the cockpit was much smaller earlier in the season. I've based my illustration on the car as it was in the San Marino GP, which is also why the Komatsu logo is a different font. I'll post a photo later.
  13. Thanks for your reply Ben I never noticed the gearchange blister on the 107C, mind you the best quality side views I had of the car were of the other side, so that's probably why I missed it. I definitely add that detail now, along with the headrests, which would also need adding to the 101 and 102 series come to think of it. If you're interested in a copy of the artworks, send me a message and I'll see what I can do. The 103 was designed during the 1990 season, so would have been the work of Frank Dernie and Frank Coppuck. Work on the car was stopped due to lack of money a
  14. Hello Thanks to you all for your kind comments about my illustrations. Since my original post back in February I have managed to recreate all the numbers, so please find the finished cars below: Type 92 Type 93T Type 94T Type 95T Type 97T Type 98T Type 99T Type 100T Type 101 Type 102 Type 102B Type 102D Type 107 Type 107B Type 107C Type 109 I have also built a 3D model of the unraced Type 103 design if anyone is interested in seeing it. Thanks Neil
