I don't believe there are any drawings for this car David but maybe Classic Team Lotus have them in their archive.
I would call this slot car an approximation rather than a faithful miniature but I think it's pretty close to correct, it was built in a matter of a week in the spirit of the way we used to build slot cars back in the 1960s.
I found a period photograph which showed an almost perfect side elevation which I scaled to the correct wheelbase but the rest of it was done by eye. The lines of the car are pretty simple so I just looked at a few period pictures from various angles to judge the contours, the body width I judged from the width of the driver's shoulders in the photographs.
