Product Review Taken From Four Small Wheels Magazine Lotus 42F Indy 1967 Hill The Lotus 42 was originally designed for Indy in 1966 and for power used a 4.2 litre version of the BRM H16, but with the engine breaking in the first test and the unreliability of the F1 version it was dropped. The chassis was then stretched to take a much longer Ford V8 for the following year in what Colin Chapman himself described as “ a right cobble up”. Graham Hill drove but the car only lasted 23 laps. The bodywork is, we think, quite pretty with the engine smoothly fared in and a subtle bulge in the left hand side to accommodate the fuel. The finish on the model in bright STP orange is very good, the decals are carefully placed and the offset suspension is well detailed.
Very well finished mass produced resin built models. Ever improving detailing now incorporating more use of photoetched details for added finesse and with excellent paint finishes. Made in China
