Making good progress with this Ken, looking good. Such a nice, elegant shape to the Lotus 78, it's always been one of my favourites amongst the various JPS sponsored Lotus GP cars! Drool ThumpUp

Hi all back off hols so now eager to get back at this.






Whilst on hols I won a revell ex protar F1 for a really great price (yes the box is really battered but the bits all look good) I've seen one on there with a starting bid of 197 quid I paid no where near that.

Can anyone guess what it is.

Hi all more progress, even with coating these old decals with clear I can't tell you how many pieces they break into when applied, very slow progress.

Hi all (sorry Richard ) the fit of the body panels (maybe the age of the kit) is awful for tamiya standards what ive photoed here is the main body part all else is an awful fit, as this kit was a gift I'm doing my best but this will never be up with the best I've built, that's not to say I'm not enjoying the build its just a shame it won't be my best build.

She nears completion (I can't get that gap at the nose cone any smaller) age of the kit I guess.

Is there something stopping the nose from going right back?
I'd look at whatever is inside the nose to see what might be amiss.
Just a thought.

Did that Roy apart from the rad (simply because it can be seen through the intake)everything else has been removed (even the bracket holding the rad) it seems actually to be the screws and nuts of the top suspension attachments

OK so these decals are 40 years old and have had a tendency to break up so last night I spent 2 hrs getting these together and was patting myself on the back about the great job I had done, only to see this morning they looked like this.



No recovery from that one, I looked on indycal but they are all printed on a black background, I'm a bit worried that it may not be the same as the black the one I've Sprayed the rest of the car with.

Anyway the rest of the decals went on OK.
