Lotus Europa, Tamiya 1/24

just looked up the reg number
HNG669L was originally black, first registered 1st September 1972 with a 1558cc engine in Norfolk which is of course where the factory is
theres no vehicle of this registration showing up as taxed or insured.....wonder what happened to it

I think it turned out pretty nice. I read about the decal problems, but they don't show up as missing at all.

As I mentioned on your build thread, this brings back some great childhood memories, you've done a cracking job on it...

It seems it was bought by Mike Kimberly of the lotus f1 team and Ronnie Peterson and Emmerson Fitipaldi drove it round the track just before the British grand prix and killed it in 12 laps
It was liveried in John Player and used as a promo for a John Player cigarette photo shoot.
