Unfortunately they have removed their realistically priced Locost chassis plans from sale due to the high cost of public liability and professional indemnity. It seems that 3 years ago Vodou freely published as set of plans, for a Miata based build, however it looks like they are not around anymore. There are plans circulating around for several different sized frames. This can be confusing. “Book” frame refers to the frame in Ron Champion’s.

If you think it’s contrary to the wishes of the folks that made the plans than don’t bother, obviously. Then problem solved for others in the future too. It explains most but not all of the process, but nevertheless it’s very inspiring. Previous topic Next topic.

Page 1 of 1. This oversized nosecone is still available from certain vendors. I’m especially fascinated with three-dimensional truss structures for car chassis design, which so far I haven’t found a real example of. I might try splitting it into smaller files Bill You do not have the required permissions to view the files attached to this post.


Fri Dec 05, 4: Frame plans are too plams to upload as a zip file. This small difference is compounded during the assembly process when working with computer software. I haven’t detailed pplans build process in this section as the many photos on this site describe how it developed.

Unfortunately they have removed their realistically priced Locost chassis plans from sale due to the high cost of public liability and professional indemnity insurance. The reality was that the poans is far from simple and there are many decisions to be made along the way and problems to overcome.


Here are the wishbones. The first is the frame pans the second is the wishbones. Also, I shouldn’t have base-coated the model in grey paint, since its roughness showed, especially inside the passenger compartment, where the overspray settled down as dust particles. Therefore the buffing did not go easy, and especially on the delicate 0.

Therefore I should not have painted the chassis steel colour overall. An evening of work finished the chassis.

I bought the edition, which is slightly revised. Ever since doing a design exercise involving a truss-frame aircraft fuselage, I have a deep interest in frame structures.

I followed the book’s building sequence to the letter, and at this point of construction I ran into problems.


Or can anyone hook me up with a set of the documents? Does anyone still have a set of these they would be willing to email to me?

Would you like to know when this website changes? After having some doubts, I decided to add the suspension attachment brackets. Sun Dec 07, 2: I liked the chassis in bare white plastic, but I thought it would look even better in Humbrol’s Polished Steel.

Instead I decided to build the chassis in 1 to 10 scale. Fri Dec 01, 1: There are three drawing packages to choose from. There are some vendors manufacturing nosecones that are taller than the book design to provide even more height for the engine.

Scratchbuilt 1/10 scale Locost chassis

I estimate that I spent some 20 hours on it. The images below show the level of detail provided in the drawing files. On the other hand, the buffed paint looked really nice, blotchy in appearance with shiny edges, just like steel before it rusts.
