      Model Scale: 1/8 Rating:  Thanks: 0

      Hi guys-My next model will be a mostly scratch-built 1/8 Lotus 72. I contacted Lotus in the UK for dimensioned drawings, but could only get an undimensioned orthographic set. A visit to the Indianapolis Motor Speedway Museum yielded hundreds of images of older Lotus cars (if anyone wants detailed images of the 1965 Lotus 38 or 1968 Lotus 56 Wedge, just ask!) I just bought an assembled Entex JPS glue bomb Entex 1/8 JPS Lotus 72 manual needed! on eBay to use the plastic as templates for my brass and aluminum parts. Can anyone help me find images of the Entex JPS manual? There are people that sell these on eBay, but I think modelers should share information free when possible. Please help! Thanks!

    Thanks Michael-I have adjusted the contrast and brightness of each page and assembled the Entex John Player Special Lotus 72D Manual into a single PDF file. Is there a place on this site where I can upload this file so everyone can get it for free instead of supporting the internet privateers? Can anyone help here?

    I think you can upload it to the manuals page Doug. I am glad you were able to get it for free and are willing to share it likewise. To many greedy people!

    That is a plateful my friend, I wish you the best of luck and look forward to your posts on this build. I'm glad you got the manual. You might need to upload to the gallery and then when asked for other destinations choose the manual page, not to sure...

    To date the best-known and bet-rated reference has been Michael Oliver's book "Lotus 72 Formula 1 Icon" which has been out of print for many years but can still be found on e-bay etc. However, in the last week or so Haynes have published "Lotus 72 Owners' Workshop Manual" which has many good photos and drawings. I recommend this for Lotus 72 modellers.

    [I][B]Triumphal Arrival of The Glue Bomb Entex 1/8 JPS Lotus 72 manual needed! !

    [/B][/I]The Entex Lotus has arrived and it's an atomic glue bomb Entex 1/8 JPS Lotus 72 manual needed! ! No worries though, I will be using most of the parts as templates for scratch building. The size and detail is very impressive, and although it is much too delicate as a plastic model (very easily breakable), it should be impressive in brass and aluminum. The manual will be valuable in scratch building this vehicle because the suspension is very complex. I love 70's Formula 1 and Indy Cars because the engines are still exposed, it was a time of intense experimentation and variation, and builders were still using traditional materials such as aluminum and steel in the monocoque chassis.

    Doesn't look so bad from here and seeing as all is is to you is a pattern I would say it's perfect. This is going to be an incredible build!
