Product Review Taken From Four Small Wheels Magazine It is unfortunate for Hasegawa that their kit of the Lotus 79 has appeared at almost exactly the same time as Tamiya's but we are sure that many modellers may well take the option of building one of each. The level of detail is very similar though the approach is slightly different and a few of the parts don't quite have the same finesse with slightly larger parts moulded together. The decals are excellent and include all of the Goodyear logos for the body and the tyres and for those taking the etched detailing set as well as the kit, there is the option of stencilling the tyres instead. This etched set also includes various grilles, side skirts, brake parts and seat belt buckles. The belts themselves are fabric webbing and the detail set also includes pre-shaped mesh covers for the inlet trumpets. All in all a very good kit.
Well detailed, easy to build plastic kits with clear instructions. Many kits include small photo-etched parts for details such as seat belts windscreen wipers and grilles. Transkits and additional detailing parts available for some subjects, see our accessories.Made in Japan.
