Product Review Taken From Four Small Wheels Magazine Lotus E20 1st Abu Dhabi 2012 Raikkonen 1:18 Kimi Raikkonen showed plenty of performance during his first season back in F1 and after several podium finishes he finally won in Abu Dhabi, giving the Lotus name its first GP win in 25 years. Minichampsí model is well finished with excellent paint and clearly printed and placed decoration. Thereís plenty of subtle carbon on the floor, suspension and wing parts and thereís neat plating on the exhaust outlets. The seatbelts on the driver figure are rather heavy plastic and we have a familiar gripe with the rear wing as the endplate vents are details on the outside but not the inside edges and should really be opened up. Itís consistent with other modern 18ths though and will look fine in any collection.
One of the market leaders in die-cast models. Good shapes, excellent paint and decoration. 1:43rds are kerbside while 1:18ths usually have plenty of opening parts and detail. Also an increasing number of 1:43 resincast models. Made in China.
