This is the start of my next build.
Lotus 107B Lotus000-vi

First order of business was to get a coat of white onto the bodywork.  
Lotus 107B Lotus001-vi
Lotus 107B Lotus002-vi


I also sorted all of the other parts and got them sprayed.

Thanks Bruce

I got more done on the engine and rear suspension.  
Lotus 107B Lotus009-vi
Lotus 107B Lotus008-vi

Tamiya gives you decals to do the upper element of the rear wing.  But after trying to get them to lay down correctly, I gave up and painted it gloss white instead.

Very good work on the body, paint and decals can make or break a finish! Engine rear suspension isn't up to older Tamiya standards (just my view). Around the time they did the Porsche 956 gtp car molded-on parts instead of separate one and little detailing was left off. Still, it's the body we see most and it looks great! Thanx for updates!

This is where I was this morning. Besides decaling the rear cowl, it's just down to assembly.
