The wheels look good Paul. I knew you could do it!

It really is a mid-engine! Coming along and wheels look good. Hard to tell on the paint finish, shiny or semi-gloss. Until one sees a Europa, it's hard to tell how small and low it is. Good luck on the final details!

and finished!

gave me problems til the end..........the metal decals (mirrors, lotus badge for engine cover, etc) just would not work in any way, the decals were dodgy too, managed to get the number plate and badge on the nose to come off the backing paper only after a soak in very hot water, not my best paint job either

Hi Paul,

Seeing this has brought back some childhood memories, I used to have a few of these as toy cars, you've done a great job of this...
