Smile Finished - Lotus Europa Special

Here is my completed Lotus Europa Special by Tamiya.

Thanks to all that followed the build up of this car.
To see the progress thread CLICK HERE.

The exterior was painted with Cobra Colors - grigio alloy metallic.
I finished the interior with a custom blue/grey color and black, with a wood dash.

This was a fun and easy li'l car to build.

I noticed after taking pics that the wiper blade had fallen off. I found it on the floor luckily, and added it now.

Here's the pics.

That is the car and your model is extra fine, they don't make them like this any more (super light). Briliant job on the paint.

Me likey!

The modern color suits the car well. Gotta build my kit one of these years, though I'm going for full-stock BRG w/those gold pinstripe decals. Hope I still have some hair left after that!

Re: Finished - Lotus Europa Special

More clean work on hot cars from who other than the king of clean himself. Excellent. Wonderful subject, too, by the way.
