Lotus 78 "Madom" - Tamiya 1/20

Hi to all
this is my last project started 2 years ago: Lotus 78 "Madom" from Tamiya, 1/20.
The livery belongs to Emilio de Villota, in the 1979 Aurora championship. It was made by Studio 27 long time ago. The colour base is Giallio Yellow from Zero paints, and the clearcoat comes from Gravity.
The engine is detailed and the rear wing is selfmade.
You can see all the progress in my blog, starting with the first entry:

Hope you like it!!

It looks amazing, very unique.

Can you imagine today Scalextrix or Carrera supporting a Formula 1 championship for privateers ?
