Lotus XI LeMans 1957

Recommended Posts

I acquired this little kit from a fellow modellers collection. It was very successful car for Colin Chapman as it won its class 501-750cc and its chief mechanic was no other than Graham Hill.

It is a very straight forward curb side kit from Profil24. Everything goes together well for a multimedia kit.

paint is tamiya racing green and the bare metal is some self adhesive foil from mfh.

comments welcome

Very nice! I've always liked the XI.

I wasn't aware that Profil24 did a kit - I've only seen the Merit kit, which is hard to find for a reasonable price.

Super clean build, Russell. And the subject isn't half bad either ?

Thanks for all the replies. It was a fun quick build although vacuformed "glass" isn't my favourite:)

Nice build Russell, looks real good.

PS I believe Graham Hill was initially employed by Chapman as a gearbox mechanic.

Lovely car, great job on the finish!  Are there lights for the #, but not the front?
