Nice Lotus, Gary! Mine is halfway there, just need the screen, the mirrors, and the transmission cover.

Good competition against the two little Atlas F1 cars too, if anybody's looking for a - relatively expensive! - new class! Not sure what else could run with them, maybe some of the slightly more modern Airfix/MRRC cars with the slimline chassis...
Just picked up one of the little Strombecker Indy cars, so not sure how they run.

The Ferrari is gone, but I found a nicely built example of each of these jewels eventually.

There was a writeup on the Monogram International in one of the period mags, Model Car & Track I think, by Pierre Perrin probably, or Pete Hagenbuch, and I can look it up for you ...
