Very nicely done . A friend had a red one of these ( a few years difference ) and when he told me it had a (UK) Bedford van engine I laughed " Lotus...& Bedford ??" ....... Until he " took me for a blast" in it .

Nice looking S1 Esprit. I see you went for that awesome mint green and flame orange interior. Nice clean work on this build. I have often wondered what these Nishimo Esprit kits built up like. I almost pulled the trigger on one of these a couple of times until Fujimi released theirs, which was a lot cheaper.

I have the new Fujimi Esprit S1 on the bench right now. I was just painting up some spoons trying to find the right shade of green for the seats. I think I'm closing in on it. I hope it turns out as well as yours.

Perfection is achieved not when there is nothing more to add, but when there is nothing left to take away.

gulftarpon, the Nishimo kit is very simple, no engine and the chassis has a battery cover with poor details, but the body and interior are well proportioned.
