The shape looks wrong to me, but it could be the photo. I will have to see one in the flesh before I decide. I have been disappointed too many time by them and Spirit in the past to jump at anything quickly.
A bit like me, the car looks too fat around the middle. But then, so was Hornby's much lusted after contemporary version. Hands up all those with one of those?
My impression of the 'right' shape was formed by the Corgi Toys model. I loved that car. More recent models and a look at the real thing suggest it is as low and slinky as the Corgi so we just have to hope the livery is slimming.
I had that Corgy model when I was a kid ! It looked great ! When you talk about the body shape, you have to remind yourself that the Lotus 72 had one one the longest carrier in F1 (at least 6 years) and the shape didn't remain the same over the years.
Off topic - apologies - but I see ciberslot have the Scalextric (Superslot) Renault F1 at just €32 = £22.40!
I suppose after shipping to UK, there will be no price saving - shame!
I wonder if we WILL get it on Dec 8th . . .
