Lotus Esprit S1 (1976)

7 posts in this topic

Posted · Report post

Hello again guys,

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.

Best Regards

Krishna Iskandana

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 ??? B)

Nice build that color is sweet too, the wheels modernize the car well.
