This is a terrible model.
In fact, it hardly passes as a decent toy – you have to build it yourself and it doesn’t come with all the parts to make it work!
According to the box, this Lotus is number 2 of a seven kit F1 series released by “Blue Tank”. The range includes 1978 Ferrari, Lotus Tyrrell, McLaren, Wolf and Brabham, plus the 1979 Ligier.
The very same kits were also marketed under Nitto & Entex brands.
They are very basic plastic kits in 1/28 scale that are supposed to have a small electric motor to propel the car. I can not recall ever seeing the motor, but it’s probably 30-odd years since I bought and built this kit.
The kit has minimal parts and the body shape is a poor representation of the real car.
I do recall this was a ‘quick build’ just to see how it would turn out, so a poor kit and a rushed job equals the mess you see here.
In summary, this is a rough build of a basic kit that is not designed for serious modelers.
It would be of value, however, to someone new to the hobby, or someone who wants to learn or develop techniques without risk of wrecking an expensive kit.
If anybody wants this Lotus, they can have it. Contact me.
