That's a beauty.    I dig that candy lime green!  Btw you put the steering wheel on the wrong side ;)

Thanks,

John

I'd forgotten about that model Lotus. As always, you have done a stellar job and I also like the lime green. YesYes

Never seen that kit before. I like it!

Guy I worked with had a black one with the Cosworth DOHC four. Funny thing, he was about 6'-5".

I really doesn't matter which side the steering wheel is on, just as long as you have fun with it!  WinkBig Smile

Must be a Lotus thing! I. too, worked with a guy in 1973 who had one. He was ell over 6 feet ass well!

To this day I still remember having a Matchbox of that very car in that very color - and that was close to 50 years ago.

If that Matchbox Lotus was like any of my Matchbox cars, then the paint was chipped and at least one wheel was bent!
