Kit / Model
A client recently acquired a Lotus 24 and commissioned a 1:12 model of the car. This example has over the years been ‘modernised’ to comply with modern safety requirements with higher roll over bars and fire equipment, seat belts etc but otherwise is pretty much unchanged since the early sixtys. The car original was raced by Reg Parnell Racing, a privateer entrant from that period and is still painted in the Parnell colours of dark blue, red noseband and white wheels. It is fitted with the 1.5 BRM engine
As no kit in this (or any other) scale has to my knowledge ever existed it was clear this had to be a scratch build and I set about drawing up, with the kind assistance of ‘Classic Team Lotus’ the necessary plans and drawing up all the tiny items which would have to be photo etched.
A complete story of the build can be seen in Decembers 'Modelersite' magazine
