This is a build i did a while back. Of course almost right after I built it there was a release of a styrene kit for this very subject. Oh well...

What we have here is the James Bond Lotus esprit as seen in the James Bond blockbuster movie: The Spy Who Loved Me

The kit

The kit came on two sheets of paper, one for the car and one for the base.

I stole these rockets from my Airfix Typhoon kit. I cut a small hole in the back of the car, just enough for the rocket to fit and added some cotton for the bubbles. I have to say I'm pleased with the results.
