Lotus Type 79 1978 1/20 (fs) Tamiya's much touted 1/20 scale Lotus Type 79 is now available. In 1977, Lotus developed the Type 78 "wing car" which achieved excellent results, and the 1978 Belgian Grand Prix saw the introduction of the even more evolved Type 79. It featured a rear suspension with inboard dampers, as well as repositioned the fuel tank and exhausts which helped maximize the Venturi effect. During that season, Mario Andretti took five wins to claim the driver's championship and Ronnie Peterson added another win to help the team take the constructor's title. The graceful yet innovative design of the Lotus Type 79 greatly influenced later F1 and other racing machines. The kit Features removable front and rear cowlings to showcase the cockpit, engine and suspension. The highly detialed engine features metal air funnel covers. The realistic slick tires have accurate profiles. The kit comes with two types of steering wheels and roll bars. Decals are included to depict either # 5 or # 6 cars. For the ultimate detailer, be sure to see the Photo-Etched Parts kit available separately.
