Few ...months? years? yes years ago I showed several 1965  green and yellow Lotus 38 from Monogram that I restored.

 

This car is famous because of Jim Clark's win at Indianapolis.

 

I also started at that time to recreate the red and white 1966 version.

 

Decals are from Indycals. I also had to turn inserts for the rear wheels.

 

I made 2 red cars, one for a friend and one for me. Here are mine: the old green one and the red that I completed at the end of 2016:

 

Did I tell you that I just love Lotus cars?  :)  (recently bought myself a third one, a 1968 seven s3).

You're not alone, Ilike them, too, also the old Watson Roadsters.  I finally made myself quit building all the beautiful cars  from that era. I make a few of those bodies and race them regularly.  My #19 is the worse for wear, but it is a great runner and the class of the field.
