I am getting ready to do an FGX body, so I was looking at the nose and wondering why you need specific stripes for the FGX? I am not planning on doing it as it would open many cans of worms

The F60 nose is flatter and much more like the real Lotus than the FGX which has a really pointy nose. So the curvature in the gold stripe will not follow the tip of the nose. Also the FGX nose is longer so the stripes won't reach all the way down.

True the nose shapes are different, but I held the stripes up to the FGX body, and while they don't extend all the way down to the tip of the nose, the shape of the stripe combined with the black paint of the body will allow you to cheat the shape of the nose. Additionally this vinyl that the decals are printed on is extremely flexible and will wrap I've just about any compound surface.

Yes very busy, could use the help, not quite to the point of being able to take on staff
It would be a bit of a commute for you

It is the 1/12th converted to F1...definitely nicer that their current F1 and the direction they should have gone with the F104 as that was long since established as the direction forward...The question that remains is...is it as good as the F1R?
