Gold Leaf Team Lotus 49
A Gold Leaf lotus 49, before it had its helicopter wings. Because race car!
About this creation

Built for Classic Race Teams, which is all Ape Fight's fault. =P








The rear differential box and the exhaust pipes. This part also worked very neatly, all the pieces just fell into place.








The working engine and its golden intakes, which match the stripes down the side.








I'm very proud of those stripes on the side. I'm not the first person to do this, but still.








The greeblies important rear workings and the exhaust system.








The front intake... not sure why it's there, since the engine is in the back and the brakes are in the open.... idk.








The side view with nothing suspicious in the photo at all. Nope, not a thing.








And another side view, which views the side.








Thanks for viewing!

!BIRDS!

A very sleek build with a fantastic colour design and some very clever solutions. Clearly one of my favorites from you!

Nice job. The front intake is for cooling the drivers foot.

Quoting Lego Builders What piece did you use for the rear window piece that looks like a wedge? I've never seen it before. -LB Jr.

I'm back for a second look. It actually looks much better at second glance...not sure why, though. :-) What piece did you use for the rear window piece that looks like a wedge? I've never seen it before. -LB Jr.

The gold stripes are nice. As well as the gold cups on the back. I know what the front air intake is for... Air conditioning! ;)

I can't decide which is better - this or Joe's. Superb :-)

Absolutely fantastic! The integration of the yellow around the nose is excellent, and the stripe is brilliant too. I love the photo of the front intake. A great addition to the team :D

Brilliant! Nice and curvy, sweet soloution for the intake, there must be some radiators in the front or somefink. GO TEAM LOTUS!

Very nice made man. I believe the airintake is there because at that time you still had a radiator for cooling in the front. Nice build.

Great little racer! Making LEGO bricks do what we want is always a challenge, I think you pulled this off nicely.

Sweet little model. The front looks a bit odd; but then again, at this scale, that curve would be quite difficult to build. I love the use of those golden cups! -LB Senior

Very nice! It will look great together with Mortalswordsman's Lotus. Great job!

There are so many great techniques on this build. You've captured the iconic look of the 49. And yes, those stripes are so cool and so impossibly thin! Great trick, that.

Excellent work, I love the stripe and the smoothness. The rear tires look excellent.

Super neat! I love the use of wineglasses in the engine! Great job as always!
