Product Review Taken From Four Small Wheels Magazine Lotus 9 Goodwood 1955 #38 MEA lists this as a Lotus Mk X but it was in fact a smaller capacity Mk IX, unusually with Connaught power. The car was shared by John Coombs, later of course associated as a Jaguar entrant and a fellow car dealer John Young and they were going well in the 9-hour race until Coombs rolled the car, thankfully without serious injury. The bodywork is unique with the normal Lotus front end but a much lower and more rounded tail and an unusual exhaust treatment with the pipe exiting over the rear wheel. The shape of the car is pretty well replicated and the bare aluminium finish is represented with satin silver paint. One frustration is that the registration number is wrong, it should read ALF 7.
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.
