Lotus 72
The 72 was yet another innovative design by Chapman featuring inboard brakes, side mounted radiators in sidepods, as opposed to the nose mounted radiators which had been commonplace since the 1950s and an overhead air intake. The overall shape of the car was innovative too, resembling a wedge on wheels which was inspired by the earlier Lotus 56 gas turbine car, and the layout taken from the Lotus 63 four wheel drive project testbed. The car was introduced partway into the 1970 season, driven by Jochen Rindt and John Miles. Rindt made the car successful, winning the Dutch, French, British and German Grands Prix in quick succession.
About this creation

Ok so this is my 2nd LDD Formula 1 car and the first from this era. I think this went ok, I got the basic wedge shape and I think everything is scaled right. I didn't get much detail into the engine/gearbox area as I didn't know which bricks to use. Any suggestions on how to improve this scale would be appreciated as I plan to do a series of 70's cars in this scale.
Thanks for looking hope you like it :)

Quoting MortalSwordsman . This is a nice creation. One of my favourites, I also plan to build it shortly. If it was in real brick I would love to add it to my lotus team in the classic race team group. The overall shape is great and you have done a good job with the wheel sizes. I would suggest some round plates and bricks for the engine gearbox area, also some pipes. I love the studs but I would also add a few cheese slopes here and there.
Thanks for the suggestions and I'm glad you like it. I shall try them out on the next car. I'd love to make this in real bricks but as you have seen from my other models I'm restricted in brick selection sadly:(
