Lotus type 72 1:8 model kit coming soon


Recommended Posts

One for the modellers on here. Hornby have a new Pocher model kit of the Lotus Type 72 coming this Autumn.

Bit pricey for me, but looks like a very nice detailed model nonetheless.

Upgrade today to remove Google ads and support TLF.

I built this plastic 1/8 scale Entex kit back in the 80's, but some of the gold decals became brittle and have lifted in time. Quite detailed (fuel and ignition lines)and took me some time to complete. Wouldn't have the time these days.

Hope the Pocher kits are of better quality than they used to.

I have the Testa Rossa: parts didn’t always fit and the body was like an orange. 
I went on buying the Testa Rossa Spider. Things got better then, though there were some modelling flaws e.g. fuel cap with no tubing to tank...

I took my chance one more time and bought the F40. Overall, best of the 3.

Think I’ll be selling all 3 to get the 72 🙂

Mirrors the real thing....sounds like a very accurate model kit.
