    Product Description
    This is a plastic model kit, which comes unassembled and unpainted. So glue, model paints and other basic modelling tools are additionally required.

    This is a re-release model of the Team Lotus Type 49 in 1/12 scale with new photo-etched parts and detail-boosting extras for the first time. The original kit was first released in 1973, and re-released most recently in 1991.

    The Type 49 Formula One car made its debut in 1967. Another ground-breaking piece of racing car engineering from Team Lotus, an innovative structural design attached the Cosworth DFV engine directly to the rear bulkhead as a stressed member. Thus, the DFV became an active element of the chassis which transmitted forces. This idea from famed designer Colin Chapman of Team Lotus reinvigorated his team, as the Type 49 roared to victory in the 1967 Dutch Grand Prix, its maiden Formula One race. 3 further wins followed that season as the car was piloted by the famed duo of Jim Clark and Graham Hill, and next year 5 more victories were added. The Type 49 contributed to 2 Constructors' titles before it was retired in 1970.
