Flyslot have just released the 1978 Madom Lotus 78 raced in the Aurora F1 Series in 1979, driven by E De Villota. As you would expect from Fly, detail levels look great although the yellow paint does not photograph that well. In some of the photos the paint finish of the 78 reminds me of the old C134 Scalextric Renault RS-01 F1. Hopefully Fly have fixed the front-end steering problems the first Lotus 78 release had.
One of the greatest automotive icons of all time is the Jaguar E-Type. 70,000 E-Types were produced between 1961 and 1975. If you've ever seen a fully restored E-Type in the flesh or had the privilege of driving one you'll know this is a car is something special.
In December this year Ninco plans to release the first of many stunning 1/32 Jaguar E-Types, the Production version of the car. Get in line now, the line is going to be long...
