Have there ever any models of the Lotus 20 been made ?

18 (quite few) and 22 (less) seem to be better represented, but I have never found a 20.

I think I saw a South African site advertising one a couple of years ago but can't remember the details.

I think that Lotus 22 and Lotus 21 are very similar and the 21 was made by Dinky-toys with #241G. Here are some picture of the one I have...

Indeed - without lifting the engine cover it could either be a 20 or 22.

Thank you for that link - nice models !

How true to scale is the Dinky? I know it's a toy and not a model but some Dinkies vary quite a long way from 1:43. Being picky, the driver is way too high for the 20/21/22 where he was practically lying down.

Edit: typos

An update - I am in close contact with Mike Serrurier now, he got lots of photos and will do a model of my 20 at the end of the year (he is very busy at the moment).
He got me thinking about a 1/18, too. Might be another good idea...
