Product Review Taken From Four Small Wheels Magazine Lotus 88 1981 Alternative version EBB20010 Lotus 88B The first thing that we noticed when our sample kit arrived from Ebbro was the weight of the box, it is absolutely jammed full of parts. This is of course in part due to the infamous ‘twin-chassis’ design of the car and that innovation means that you build the inner tub with all suspension and engine details before lowering the outer ground effect bodywork over it. The kit design also has something to do with it as some of the parts such as the outer side panels and rear wing elements are duplicated with a set moulded in blue and another with a heavy chrome finish for those who would rather not use the excellent looking chrome decals provided. We’d go for the un-plated parts and for colour there are suggestions of Tamiya colours throughout. There’s plenty of detail in the box but still scope to add your own wiring and plumbing and no doubt we’ll see etched parts in the near future.
Well detailed and very well finished die-cast and resincast models of (mostly) spectacular subjects. Also 1:10 & 1:24 quality plastic kits. Made in Japan.
