I know race cars take a back seat here - particularly F-1 cars but this model is so well done that I just had to share photos of it

It's the Lotus Type 78 that was put out some years ago by True Scale Miniatures and it is a masterpiece!

I like your pics. Is that an asphalt roof shingle ?

Clever and effective !

beautiful model & I love the simple & classic JPS livery.

My first 1:18 was a JPS Lotus 72 by Corgi.

@100ford2003 Yes, I installed roofing material on the plywood board that I use for taking photos outdoors. I also use it to line my display shelves because I find that the models tires don't stick to it like they do on smooth surfaces.

"......model's tires don't stick to it like they do on smooth surfaces....."     Frank raises an interesting point: Just what is the chemical reaction that causes model's tires to stick to smooth surfaces?

As I recall, 100 years ago when I use to build plastic models, the same thing use to happen. 🤔 🤨 🤔 🤨

100 Years ago?  Man, you look really good for your age!  You don't look a day over 90!  🤣
