Lotus 72D UK 1972 Charlton by Spark

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.

About Spark

The range which changed the 1:43 model market and for which we coined the term 'resincast'. Resin rather than traditional diecast bodies mean that relatively short production runs can be made and what might be marginal subjects become viable. Quality is very consistent with plenty of fine etch used where necessary. A huge range is the result, covering all aspects of (mostly postwar) motorsport and a wide variety of road cars. We typically see around 30 new subjects released per month and pre-orders are strongly recommended. Made in China
