I guess either:

 

A. Kawai Japan 1:38 NISSAN FAIRLADY Z DATSUN 280 Kit MB`78

B. US Airfix  1:24 Datsun 280zx

 

Both of these kits have this style of wheels.

It looks like nobody answered correctly, but Mike provided the answer, so no idea who's supposed to be up next. Whoever wants to post something, please do, and let's keep this going with a new part.

Lotus is owned by DRB Hicom's subsidiary Proton so that means they're still in business.

Hmmm....makes me think it might be something from the Indy Car world (many series names--IRL, CART, Indy Car, Izod Indy Car, etc).  Dallara is still around, Lola I believe is defunct, and IIRC the AMT '80s Indy Cars included Lolas..or maybe Reynard..not sure of their status, IIRC Revell did some Reynards in the '90s.

I'm not sure anyone has ever used them on the kit they were included with....not the best looking decals ever designed.  :wacko:

I'm thinking it's one of the Monogram IRL / CART Lola Indy cars... White over Yellow MAC TOOLS livery perhaps?

Yep, Michael, that's the one I was talking about! Guess that means it's my turn!?!? Let's see if anyone can get this?
