Scale Models: Lotus – sponsored by Classic Team Lotus

Scale models are a big part of the any collection of automobilia. Auto-Archives has large collections of both Lotus and McLaren models as well as a limited selection of other marques. Shown here are some of our favorite 1:43 scale Lotus models from the total of 250 or so Lotus models we have in the archive. Many of these Lotus models are from the Lotus collection of Jim Bennett that he generously donated to the archive a few years ago. We are looking for donations of other marques to broaden our collection. Do you have any you would like to donate and see them featured on their own pages?

Thank you to Classic Team Lotus in the UK who are proud to sponsor the Lotus model pages and provided many of the monoposto models shown. You will find many of these images link directly to the Team Lotus Register pages on their website.

If you are a Lotus fan and would like to see images of the real examples of all these cars you need to get a copy of the fabulous book by William Taylor, Lotus the Marque. It is available on our hobbyDB store Lotus the Marque page.
