Product Review Taken From Four Small Wheels Magazine Lotus 91 UK 1982 Accessory set available STUCD20043 carbon decal STUTAB20147 additional decals & STUTAB20148 full livery decal Ebbro has chosen the British Grand Prix for the first version of its Lotus 91 kit as in these politically correct times, it is a race that it can reproduce a correct livery for. The cars ran with full sponsorship in practice, but for the race there was a simple laurel leaf logo with “TL” for Team Lotus in the centre. The decals reproduce this accurately and also have the correctly coloured logos for the various suppliers and, of course, both driver options. Mansell was driving with a broken wrist and retired from the race but de Angelis finished a respectable fourth. There’s plenty of detail in among the kit parts with multi-piece bodywork which can be removed to reveal the narrow central tub, Cosworth DFV engine, full suspension etc. The instructions include diagrams for adding plug wiring but not the wire itself (T2M2007B) and while adding detail builders may prefer to upgrade the decal seat belts for more realistic items (TAM12637). Overall the build looks fairly straightforward with some fiddly painting being the most challenging aspect. Another very welcome classic F1 machine from Ebbro and the last of the Lotus racers of the Chapman era.
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.
