LEGO McLaren MP4-4 Work in Progress (WIP) -- "The McLaren MP4/4 was a highly successful Formula 1 car that competed in the 1988 Formula One season. It was designed by Gordon Murray, who based the design on his lowline Brabham BT55 car of 1986, and American engineer Steve Nichols.  It is one of the most dominant Formula One cars ever built, winning all but one race in the 1988 season."

What are those wheels he uses for frontwheels for Lotus cars, the ones that are equal to the official lego formula wheels only narrower.

Rims i'm guessing are the same as those on the 8297? Right, but the tyre i'm not sure about.

I love them, especially the Tyrell P34 one. When I was a kid I built a paper model of it.

I know the pieces fit.

I'm really digging the Lotus 43. Though, to be fair, they're all really awesome!

Rusconi is his name (typical lombard one). He said me last year he was going to create a 1:6 scaled Formula 1 racer, let's hope he make it soon!

Here I am!
Glad to hear that you like them: I should find some time to present them here in details, but in the latest months it's really hard to find time also to build  :hmpf_bad:
Btw, there is an old article on LDraw about my design process, here: http://www.ldraw.org/Article535.html
I'm preparing an updated version includind the latest cars and additional details, but let's say the basis are always the same.

The upcoming McLaren is almost ready: enjoy the turbine on the exhaust pipes, the rear suspension and the rear diffuser fron this image  :grin:

PS: and yes, the front rims are always 44772

No way!
In order to have a diffuser under the rear suspension arms I had to squeeze and shrink everything in that area...

Did you color the front rims of the Lotus 43 and Lotus 79 yourself? If yes, what kind of paint did you use?

A simple acrylic spray you can find in a do-it-yourself store. :blush:
