This is a transkit to reproduce the last car of Ronnie Peterson. He drove his spare Lotus 78 in the 1978 Italian GP. Sadly, he lost his life after post-operational complications following an incident on the start of the race.

This transkit is based on the Tamiya Lotus 78 kit, which I aquired cheap, because kit decals are unusable. I really don't care about. In fact the decal sheet of the transkit provides the correct decals.
The transkit consists mostly of a P/E fret, a few metal parts and a decal sheet.
