It has been a while since I built my last Formula one model car. But seeing how promising the Ebbro Lotus kit looked, I couldn’t resist building it as soon as I got my hands on a sample. It’s Ebbro’s first attempt to release a 1/20 F1 model kit, and it’s a winner right away!. I think you could use Tamiya kits as a standard, and Ebbro managed to reach the same level instantly. The kit was designed by an ex-employee of Tamiya, and of course it’s showed clearly.
The box decals allow two car versions, you can either make the British Grand Prix winner (car number 5) or you can chose to build the German Grand Prix Winner (car number 2). I chose to build the British GP winner.
Building the model
The build started basically with the monocoque, just like the real life car. The tub consists of two halves which were carefully assembled. I also fix the cockpit to the flat bottom of the model.
