Alfa Model 43 - Ferrari 166M Spider Oblin 1:43 model
Product Review Taken From Four Small Wheels Magazine Ferrari 166M Spider Oblin Spa 1955 #19 The Ferrari of Belgian driver Herzet was constantly evolving through his ownership, the Oblin body which replaced the Vignale original in 1954 receiving subtle modifications for a year or so. Here we see it in definitive form with a faired-in bonnet bulge and small headrest. The model captures the details and the slightly unusual shape of the car pretty well and has an excellent black and red paint finish with red interior. Period photos suggest that the black part should be satin in finish and the research for the recent restoration of the car revealed that the main colour was a charcoal grey rather than black.
