I've been working on building some of the 80s and 90s Model Team sets in MLCad and noticed they are not in the repository here.  I'm planning to post more, including alternate models, as I make them OMR compliant, but I suppose I'll wait for this one to be reviewed first so I know if there's anything I need to fix.

Hmm. It seems nobody replied to you yet. To be honest, your post went under my radar too  Sad
Well, better late then never I suppose... I took a look at your file and it looks perfect to me. I have added it to the OMR.
Here are the A and B model of Model Team set 5540. The A-Model doesn't have the stickers yet, B-model doesn't use the stickers.

They're created with MLCad and contain also metacommands for LPub 3D.
They should be OMR compliant, please let me know if they're not.

Believe it or not I don't remember this!

According to the OMR Spec:
https://www.ldraw.org/article/593.html

the file name should be something like:

5540 - Formula I Racer - A Model.mpd
5540 - Formula I Racer - B Model.mpd

Did you run it through MPDCenter or tried https://brickhub.org/ which also gives you some clues?

It'll get fixed when it's added to the OMR. Just remember for the future.

Placement of the front and rear stickers isn't indicated in the instructions, but can be determined from box artwork photos.

I'm doing the stickers now for this set. I had to approximate the sizes from the BL image along with clues from the instructions, but most of them turned out slightly too large. (This seems true to life, actually; in photos I've seen of the real model, some stickers do seem to be cut a bit too big to fit.) So I just need to revise the dimensions.

If anyone does know the real measurements, of course, that would be handy!

An alternate version including stickers.

There are also two versions of the flexible hoses inlined. Those with filenames ending in "-o" can be used when the engine cowl is removed, giving the hoses a more natural curvature when they are not compressed by the cowl. Just select all the hoses and toggle the MLCad HIDE metas to switch versions.
