SMTS - Lotus 48 1:43 model

Lotus 48 model by SMTS

Product Review Taken From Four Small Wheels Magazine
The Formula Two Lotus 48 is a very significant subject for Lotus collectors and one that has been unmodelled for a very long time, as it is the car in which Jim Clark had his fatal accident at Hockenheim. For this reason many makers have stayed away from it and it was a tough decision for SMTS to make the model as they too are Clark fans. We had a little confusion at first when the delivery arrived as we were expecting two kits, one for each season, but the way that the decals have been printed means that there are specific kits for each driver each year. The kit parts are relatively straightforward, with the majority well cast in white metal, requiring very little clean up before assembly. On the 1968 cars a twotone red and white finish will be needed and on all of them the clear vac-forms will need to be tinted yellow. The general build quality of the hand builts isn’t bad at all, with good paint, neatly applied decals and good square suspension. Very important subjects for Lotus and Clark collectors in particular.

About SMTS

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.
