While waiting for my Tamiya Lotus Europa I stumbled on this

Manuals and more to the Europa. Everything is downloadable and gives a wealth of info on this little marvel.

I built a Tamiya Lotus Europa when it first came out, what a joy to build, it nearly put itself together , but that manual would have been helpful back then, any ideas on how you are going to build your version?, here are a few pics of the one I built, hope you like them,




The car is painted with automotive paints shot through an airbrush, it's British Racing Green metallic and the gold is Microscale decal sheet, I painted the wheels with Tamiya gold that was decanted from one of the small "TS" rattle cans, The exhaust was painted with ALCLAD II chrome then heat stained with PACTRA pearl purple, I added some wiring to the engine just to make it look a bit more busy. All in all a lovely little kit that has no real vices when it come to building.

Re: While waiting for my Tamiya Lotus Europa I stumbled on this

Hey Niclas thanks for that!

I also just picked up a Europa and am waiting for it to get to me.

I was thinking of trying to do mine in some kind of JPS livery. Ever heard of any aftermarket deacals for this?

I can't find aftermarket ANYTHING for this kit

Look forward to seeing your build of this. Starting it straight away
