Designed for use the the Tamiya or Academy 1/20 scale JPS Lotus MKIII and the Tamiya 1/12 scale JPS Lotus MKIII. If you've ever built the Tamiya 1/20 kit with the kit decals you know they left a lot to be desired - printed in a translucent yellow that took on a slight greenish hue when applied over black. We've created our decals in a more accurate biscuit color to give new life to this car.
NOTE: This sheet has been updated. This is for the 1978 version of the Lotus 78 and is designed to be used with the recently re-issued kits that have photo etch wingplates to replicate the car as it was used during the 1978 season. If you do not have a version with the photo-etch wingplates, or if you do not wish to use the photo-etch wingplates, you need to order the 1977 version of the Lotus 78 decals.
The black printing provides a better detail of the biscuit color printing and prevents silvering that occurs when clear decal film is applied over dark colors.
