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

Hi Paul,

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.
