Product Review Taken From Four Small Wheels Magazine Lotus 91 Belgium (?) 1982 Accessory set available STUCD20043 carbon set & STUTAB20148 full livery Alternative version EBB20012 UK & EBB20021 Nakajima Ebbro describe the first of these kits as being from the Belgian Grand Prix, it isnít. In that race both cars ran with the higher rear bodywork and twin intakes seen in Ebbroís first Lotus 91 kit (EBB20012) and the main difference in this set of parts is a new rear deck moulding with no airbox and a gauze panel above the intakes instead. As far as we can see, both cars ran with this bodywork in Long Beach and Mansell did at Monaco. The decal sheet is necessarily devoid of certain sponsors with alternative logos supplied instead but even allowing for this, the placement of the driver names is incorrect for all but Monaco. At the end of the season Lotus gave Satoru Nakajima his first taste of F1 power in a test at Donington and for this test he ran with no rear body section fitted at all, which of course enables us to see the kitís decent level of engine and suspension detail. The instructions include wiring guides for the plug leads in all of these kits but the material is not included, so you will need to source this (T2M2007B). The open rear bodywork also adds the option of building the de Angelis car from Monaco or either car from Detroit, so there are a few options, all of which will need the aftermarket decals and extra reference for absolute accuracy.
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.
