Lotus 49 Ebbro 009


Ebbro 1/20th basically straight from the box. Strangely, the steering track rod needed lengthening to prevent a very toed-in look. Also added ignition wiring and fuel injector pipes on the engine.  I toyed with the idea of masking and spraying the yellow stripe but chickened out - and I'm glad I did as the kit decal worked far better than I expected. With huge doses of Microsol it even curled around inside that nose cone. And yes, I know, the chromed wheels are OTT but hey - they look good like that!
