1/20 Lotus 102B Judd

1991 Japanese GP #11 Mika Häkkinen

After the buy-out by a group of former Lotus employees at the end of 1990, the "new" Team Lotus was apparently expecting a difficult season for 1991. The proposed type 103 design was cancelled in favour of a reworked 102 "B" design because of the limited budget. The powerful but heavy Lamborghini V12 engines were dropped and Judd V8 engines installed.

But the car was not that bad and some points were earned during the season.

The car underwent some modification during the year. Fortunately, famous Japanese plastic kit manufacturer Tamiya was a major sponsor and in turn created a 1/20 kit for us  :-)

It mostly represents the SanMarino GP spec. I want a special thing here again, and will try to convert to Japanese GP spec.
