Lotus 8 Goodwood 2012 #26 by MEA kit 43

Lotus 8 1954 Goodwood 2012 #26
Modelled as it appeared for sale at Goodwood in 2012, the subject here is the second Lotus 8 chassis built and the first of the customer cars. The slightly bulged rear wheel spats are correct, as is the hard tonneau cover on the passenger side making the already streamlined machine more slippery still. The paintwork has a deep gloss on the model but again some of the panel engraving has been obscured. Very fine wire wheels are fitted and tubular exhaust tips poke out through the side.

About MEA kit 43

An interesting range initially specialising in 1:43 motorcycles. The nature of the subjects and the size of many of the parts mean that these are best suited to those with good eyesight! Casting quality can be variable and this combined with the size puts them firmly in the 'for the experienced modeller' category. Hand builts of the motorcycles are usually pretty well finished. Alongside the bikes are a number of Dakar raid subjects and early Lotus race cars, again offered as kits and hand builts. SPL series are hand built only and concentrate on very unusual race cars. Build quality on these is variable and they are usually presented in recycled Spark cases. Very interesting subject matter though. Made in France.
