Product Review Taken From Four Small Wheels Magazine Aston Martin DB3 1955 Hyeres Kangaroo - 3 car set The Kangaroo Stable was formed for the 1955 racing season by a group of Australian racers to compete in Europe, the most famous of their numbers being Tony Gaze and Jack Brabham. Gaze had attempted to buy D Type Jaguars to no avail, but did manage to acquire three Aston Martin DB3Ss (chassis #s 102, 103 & 104). First outing for all three cars together was at the Hyeres 12 Hours where they finished 2nd, 3rd & 4th behind a works Ferrari and there were single entries at Silverstone and Goodwood and a two car effort for the Portuguese GP. The kits are based on SMTS parts and so we see the familiar style of very good white metal castings with a small amount of etch for the finer details and excellent wire wheels. The original SMTS kit has vent detail that is not appropriate for these cars, so a little filling is needed during paint preparation. This is clearly marked on the instructions which combine SMTSís original drawings with additional images from Automodelli Studio for decal placement. Decoration on all three cars was identical, so for decoration you just need to pick the appropriate race and road registration numbers from the decal sheets.
