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 is for the 1977 version of the Lotus 78 and is designed to be used with the original front and rear wingplates that were molded in plastic. If you want to build the 1978 version with the photo etch wingplates, you need to order the 1978 version of the Lotus 78 decals.
Markings for Mario Andretti, 1977 season. Model car in photos depicts the 1977 US Grand Prix winning car. For Ronnie Peterson you need to order the 1978 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..
