Here's a mini Caterham I've just built for my kids.
Scale is 7:10.
Home made project.
My daughter will drive it for Little Big Mans during Le Mans Classic in July.

Hope you like it. smile

Thanks. smile

It's powered with an electric axle. The space at the front was needed for the legs (yes, I can drive it too! biggrin ).









And seats are home made too.



































More to follow. wink

There are no K&N filters in this size and shape. I had to make fake ones.

I started the project from this.


Made on the computer then laser cut.




The roll bar is the exact replica of the real ones.






Original KN Jupiter wheels. These ones were for Minis (5x10)















 
I had to make adapters to go from 4x100 to 4x101,6 (4x4")
























Fake exhaust

Amazing work beer.

Someone linked to a video of it being driven round your garden on the LC7 forum - I'm envious of your children biggrin

Great to see more detail of the build here.
