1/24 Revell Lotus 23 built from the kit and then given a made up livery. I looked at a lot of 23's and wanted to something a little different.

I like your's better. However, I vacuum-formed a windscreen for this one and wish you had said something because I could have sent you a nice copy. But, as Tony says.... your's looks GRRRRREAT!

Nice build as usual, I'd have a big smile on my face if I were driving that little car too.

Some people are like Slinkies... they're really good for nothing... but they still bring a smile to your face when you push them down a flight of stairs.

Beautiful builds guys. Chris, I love the detail work on that "made up" livery of yours. Very nice, sir.

Brilliant work Chris! Like all of your projects, the finish is stunning. The painting of the drivers face and the steering wheel are pretty awesone as well.

- and Jairus too! I took a double-take on the driver's legs. They look just right from the angle of the photo.
