Product Review Taken From Four Small Wheels Magazine Lotus 72D UK 1972 Charlton We usually associate Dave Charlton and his privately-run Lotus with races in South Africa, but in 1972 he embarked on a limited programme of European races too, having collected his freshly rebuilt, ex-Works Lotus 72D from Hethel. Brands Hatch saw his best performance (to be fair he was ill in France and Germany!) but mechanical problems curtailed his race. A few small, easily found decals will need to be added to complete the livery on the model but those that are applied are well placed and the overall shape and decoration looks good. As usual on Spark’s 72s, there is a well detailed DFV visible in the rear, just lacking plug wiring and for this version we see large oil tanks and coolers out back beneath the rear wing.
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
