Sun Star 1/18 Lotus 72D

In the classic black and gold livery of JPS, this new large scale F1 car of Emerson Fitipaldi is due for release by Sun Star in November.  Staged in those days at Brands Hatch in Kent, the Brazilian driver Emerson Fitipaldi started from second place on the grid (of 26 cars), behind the Belgian, Jackie Ickx in his Ferrari.  Ickx had to retire from the 76 lap race and Emerson went on to win.  He was followed in by another famous Jackie, Jackie Stewart, driving a Tyrell.

Below are the mock up images of Sun Star's new model (No18280).
