Lotus 72D - Emerson Fittipaldi First Tittle

Kit / Model  

Lotus 72D

Manufacturer  

Tamiya

Item Code  

12013

Scale  

1/12

Description  

The very first time I found this kit it was about 20 years ago, but I cound't buy it because I was saving money to get married. But I never forgot it and, unfortunelly, I never found it again. But in may 2010 I got it in an eBay auction and I got very amazed to own Emerson Fittipaldi's first car to clinch a world title. So, I put my hands at work every night and weekends to finish it.
By the way, I guess this Lotus is one of the most beautiful F1 ever made!!
