Product Review Taken From Four Small Wheels Magazine Lotus 33 1st Belgium 1965 Clark Hand built available RL006M17 SMTS first released the Lotus 33 many years ago but although this uses the same catalogue number, it is a much-revised kit, most notable being the inclusion of engine detail. The main engine block is cast onto the chassis plate but there are separate cam covers, exhausts and intakes all very finely cast and plenty of other small castings for suspension etc. Machined trumpets finish off the inlet side and there are very fine springs for the shock absorbers. Our sample has a single decal option, Clark’s winning car from Belgium which was one of several victories which took him to his second World Championship, but you will need to find race photos for placement as the instructions only cover assembly.
Reasonably well cast white metal kits that build with ease. Open wheeled subjects usually accurate, road cars not always so. With hand-built models again single seaters usually better. Made in England.
