The team formerly known as Toleman/Benetton/Renault and the real deal

Last weekend, we saw Kimi Raikkonen won the 2013 season opener in Australia with the team formerly known as Toleman/Benetton/Renault. I was sleep deprived. Malaysian GP will be on in a couple of days. Let's see if pretend to be Lotus can repeat!

Talking about Lotus, the MFH 1/43 Lotus 79 order came in today. So, I used up another unit of my 2013 quota. With the MFH kit, I actually have 2 full detail Lotus 79. On the left, the Tameo WCT version of Lotus 79, found that in auction last year or may be 2011. On the right, the brand new MFH Lotus 79.

Not sure when I will get to them, but I will definitely put these 2 together. May be I should build them into the 1978 Holland GP version where Mario Andretti and Ronnie Peterson finished 1-2.

  1. Yeah I hope Kimi can repeat his good form from Australia this coming weekend. I have grown to like the Lotus this year..
    Nice pick ups with the kit...look forward to seeing a build progress.
