I recently completed a 1/20 scale model of a Can-Am Lola T-222 that may be of interest to Lola enthusiasts on your site. I first saw this car in action at the 1971 Road America Can-Am and was impressed with its performance and good looks. The model is based on a vintage MPC kit of one of those "orange" cars (an M8D).

It features vacu-formed bodywork, a scratch-built driver figure with '70's-style helmet and a splashy conceptual paint scheme. The kit tub was lowered and widened to accept the Lola bodywork. The Chevy engine sports staggered velocity stacks and top-ported exhaust system made from carefully bent and rebent large diameter electrical wire. Aluminum surfaces were simulated with adhesive-backed aluminum foil used in the heating industry. Reference photos from the internet were invaluable in drawing up plans for the project, which took 3 months to complete.
