      Hi Stuart,

      I get most of them from a colleague, but they aren’t for free (copyright). A few of them I did more or less by myself. If you forward me your email, I can send them to you.

      Cheers, Paul

    Thanks Paul, that would be great and most appreciated.
    I have a 1/24th scale Tamiya lotus 78 that I want to detail up, working suspension and the like so the more information I can acquire the better the finished model will be.
    Kind Regards,
