Product Review Taken From Four Small Wheels Magazine For Tamiya TAM20060
At the time of writing Tamiya's new Lotus 79 kit had only just arrived in the UK but the aftermarket parts are already coming through thick and fast from Japan. The monocoque upgrade parts are finely cast in white metal and include the main seat pan/fuel cell, upper front chassis and dash panel parts. The sliding skirt pack is a simple set of precisely etched stainless steel parts. Both packs will help add a little finesse and, in the case of the monocoque, weight to the plastic kit. Similar pieces will be along shortly for the Hasegawa kit.
HOB020069 Honda RC166 PE Detailing Set 1:12 £38.25
For Tamiya kit TAM14113
Tamiya's Honda RC166 is a very well detailed kit as standard and Tamiya themselves make plenty of excellent upgrade parts for it but this fine etched set is something else with two of the three etched sheets consist of cooling fins and spacers to remake the engine block! The chain is a multi layer affair with a rigid inner loop on both sides held together on machined pins and then slightly larger individual outer links to finish off. It's difficult to describe but will make sense when you see the parts.
