Lotus 81B (Mansell's Debut version) by Club M

This is an out-of-production resin kit made by Club M.
It is the only 1/20 kit of the Lotus 81B as far as I know, and this is Nigel Mansell's Formula 1 debut version, the Lotus 81B from Zolder 1980.

This kit has many parts to build a curbside version of the car including the usual Cosworth engine. It has many metal parts (suspension, engine...) and some resin parts.

This is Nigel Mansells debut F1 car, which he raced in Zolder 1980. It is the Lotus 81B with slighly revised bodywork and other subtile differences to the standard Lotus 81. All these are reflected in the kit.

This kit has many parts to build a curbside version of the car including the usual Cosworth engine. It has many metal parts (suspension, engine...) and some resin parts.
I know there are at least two versions of the kit, one that builds the #11/#12 cars of DeAngelis/Andretti and one that additional builds the #43 car of Nigel Mansell (all of 1980), and also the Lotus 81B from the first race of 1981.
