@100ford2003  What is the difference between this F-1 model and the Indy winning car by Clark ?

@randtheman That was an older Lotus 38. It looks similar and was the first rear engine car to win at Indy. It was also set up differently to adhere to USAC rules. It was still a Lotus-Ford but had a 4.2 liter DOHC V8.

Automodello made a magnificent model Rich. Your photography shows it up magnificently.

I had for years the Quartzo version of this car in 1/18. I parted with it when reducing my 1/18 models. It was nice but not a patch on this one.

Here is a Quartzo for comparison. Not mine but the same model.

I hate when they put driver figures in the model and are toy-like. It just ruins it for me. With early Exoto F1s, they always stuffed a driver figure in the second run of the model (first was always driverless), and they were so poorly done. In later years the driver figures go a lot more realistic looking.
