Lotus Esprit S1 (1976)
Posted 26 December 2012 - 10:37 PM
I'm gonna close this year with an old and quite rare kit, a Lotus Esprit S1 from Nichimo.
The body was spraypainted with tamiya gun metal grey ( I have been very fond of this color in my recent builds ) and then clearcoated with Gloss Clear from Mr Hobby as usual.
It was a simple curbside model, hence the kit came with a half engine which only visible from the top.
I will post my 2012 builds recap next monday, on December 31st
Let me know what you think and thanks for looking.

Beautiful build. Looks just as good as Bond's white version!

i like it! The color looks good on it. What about the wheels? Are they in the kit?
Is it possible, to make a closeup from the enginebay?
I have both following generations of the esprit in my shelf - like the style of them.

Nice build, I'ld prefer the original wheels but that's my taste. How about the outside mirror, looks like it comes from a bicycle. Are they the original ones ???
