Lotus Ford Type 72D

Lotus Ford Type 72D
One day like any other, the boss was wasting time in front of the computer searching for who knows what, and then he felt in love. It was a picture of Emerson Fittipaldi flying at the British GP at the wheel of a gorgeous, slim, slender, daring, and brutally beautiful black machine. That incredible machine was the Lotus Ford Type 72D, without any doubts one of the most beautiful racing machines ever built (well, that was a bit of sucking up to the boss...).

Since "the crush" happened, the boss has dedicated himself to compiling information about that precious Formula 1, travelling thousands of kilometers to be able to see and touch several of those chassis, and building all the scale models he could (MFH, Tamiya, Ebbro, SMTS, Studio27, Provence, etc.). And... what happened this week? Well, the boss has mysteriously disappeared, no one knows where he is. And it is also not known why there is an imbalance in the stock of the Lotus Ford Type 72D in 1/8 scale by Pocher that has just arrived these days. Coincidence...? :)

If you are a maniac like the boss, we recommend that you make room on your workbench and urgently get your Pocher, because they are a limited series of just a few units, which will be available for a short time, and once assembled it will look awesome in the middle of your living room. Right?

By the way, if someone finds the boss of SpotModel please bring him back to work... XD
