Tamiya 1/12 Lotus MkIII John Player Special

March 11, 2013 · in Automotive · · 2 · 2.7K

Still going with the automotive kits for a bit..This is 's 1/12 Lotus MkIII driven by Mario Andretti in I believe 1974..this kit is built straight from the box. These kits are fantastic but very expensive now.. I think I only paid about $30 for this one. They have working suspension, wired engines, and working steering. They have decals for the driver figure that you have to purchase seperatly. Some of the earlier ones came with a seated driver. I have always liked this one because of the black paint with yellow trim. I also like the Tyrell 6 wheeler. I dont have that one.

    Nice! I'm not a Formula 1 racing car fan but I do have a soft spot for the old ones...

  2. Looks great! I just signed up today and I saw your work. I am into 1/12 scale too and I know the work that it takes. Very time-consuming. Nice work!
