What has to be one of my favourite F1 cars of all time and would love to see it as a Partwork, is his Lotus 97T.

The striking "Black on Gold" just oozes class.

I'm sure other F1 cars both past and present will be added to a growing list on the Model Space website as they have a proven track record of being popular.

One thing I have noticed spencer from the picture you posted, is just how exposed the drivers were back then, when you look at the cockpit arrangement. Cool

Hey there, just to let you know that here in Brazil we are now building the Lotus 97t model from Deagostini. I'm not sure if this collection was released in any other country, but anyway I've attached some pics so you can have an idea on how it's going the build here.

Lucas': thank you for posting photos of your Lotus 97T build; this subscription is not available anywhere else [ I've tried , believe me!] I was only able to secure issue #1 here in the US, and none others. Will be watching with interest ........

Hey Eagle! No problem, I made an instagram account to post the build process, but it will take a while as the parts are arriving once in a month to me. And it's my first build ever, so please bear in mind that LOL


If anyone else is interested: @minicustomshop


Also, as I went on with the Lotus build, I'm now chasing the mp4/4 editions here hahaha. I have like 60% of the editions. Soon I'll try to build the mp4 as well!

Best regards,

Oh yeah Lucas

That is correct. I can confirm this. The new model is out since last year ant the quality is also very good. I can´t say if it also from Kyosho, but based on the information on their site, seems to be a comparable quality to the Mp4/4 and MP4/23.
Please fill free to read more information under their site:

The Youtube Product overview also.

The online PDF Brochure:

First online build diary.

I realy hope this comes to Europe any time soon. Japan doesn´t have it on the market yet. I believe this is a commond project of Deagostini Brasil and the brasilian Senna Foundation.

Anyway, if anyone has more news , information, please fill free to reply to this topic.
Keep in touch!

All the best.
Stefan

Hey Stefan!

I'm not sure if the Ayrton Senna Institute here participated somehow of the project...I mean, their logo appears in all editions but as far as I'm concerned Deagostini (it's not clear also who is the manufacturer, definetely not Kyosho, parts are arriving without any information) developed this model with the supervision of the Classic Team Lotus, just as it happened with the previous collection of the Mclaren MP4/4. Anyway, all the build process so far didn't involve glue, just need to tighten the screws on!

I'm adding some more pictures and also comparing with some parts of the MP4/4 so you can have a look.

As I mentioned before, I made an instagram account just to keep the updates on the Lotus build process (@minicustomshop).


If you or anyone else need any other information I'm glad to help Smile

Best regards,
Lucas
