Product Review Taken From Four Small Wheels Magazine Lotus 17 Le Mans 1959 #54 Kit available MEA063 The Lotus 17 was the replacement for the hugely successful XI but the Le Mans debut didnít go to plan, #54 suffering ignition problems from the very start and #53 retiring with headgasket failure having been running fourteenth overall and leading both the Index of Performance and the 750cc class. The kit parts are very simple with resin for the body, chassis, seats, wheels and exhaust, white metal for fillers and the steering wheel, well sized tyres, a couple of vac-forms and clearly printed decals. The hand built models have a realistic level of finish and the decal placement looks accurate from the photos that we have although the decals themselves are a little rough in places on our samples.
About MEA kit 43
An interesting range largely, but not exclusively, consisting of 1:43 motorcycles. The nature of the subjects and the size of many of the parts mean that these are best suited to those with good eyesight! Casting quality can be variable but hand builts usually pretty well finished. Made in France.
