Hi
This is a backdated Tamiya M-boro kit , I used aftermarket decals to build the Hulme winning car from the Swedish GP 1973
I used photoetched rivets, belts, braided lines and connectors, I forgot the brands because I did this models a few years ago.
Some minor work on the body . I think that the Yardley livery is one of the best from that era :-)

I agree Bruce! I got this kit from a Craigslist ad here, but no more instructions or decals. I want to build it, Thomas has giving me inspiration. I got this and the two 1/12 Lotus kits: 72 D and the JPS Mk.III

Hi
I´m very happy for your nice comments! I ´ve understood that F1 cars is not so common here, so I will show my latest build, a Lotus 72D very soon.
