This is my first completion in a while. It's a rare kit from a Japanese manufacturer called Modeler's that is no longer in business, of a Lola T89 Formula 3000 car campaigned in the All-Japan F3000 series in, well, Japan, in 1989. It's as true as I could get gleaning from several sources, as specific references of this car are few.

The car is powered by a normally aspirated 8-cylinder, 16-valve, overhead cam Mugen engine.

I have the same kit sitting in my stash, but I want to do this livery the Players F3000 that ran in the Euro 3000 series. Since no one has ever produced these decals, I'm going to have to do them myself.

Douglas, that would be a great livery. I have one more kit and wasn’t too excited about the kit livery. I might have to consider thatone myself one day. It will be a while...

Have you looked at Indycals? They have some CART decals that could possibly be adapted, or at least be a head start.

Very Very nice racecar Art.

It was a sad day when "Modelers" went under.

They had a lot of nice kits and excellent detail items.

Took me a little bit but I found the thread Art.  My bad for not seeing this one earlier.   You nailed the colors / look of the car perfectly.   Cheers, tim
