Bizarre - Wingfoot Express 1:43 model

Wingfoot Express model by Bizarre

Product Review Taken From Four Small Wheels Magazine
Wingfoot Express Bonneville 1965 Tatroe
Having split from his half-brother Art and the Green Monster projects, Walt Arfons set out to build his own land speed record contender, to be driven by Bob Tatroe, using solid fuel JATO (jet assisted take-off) rockets mounted in the tail of the needle nosed design. With just a 14 second burn these resulted in a disappointing 406 mph (654km/h) top speed. Another attempt was then made with an extra ten JATO packs installed and this yielded a maximum of 579 mph (933 km/h) but the short distance meant that the average speed was way down. The car is modelled on the original version and those rocket packs in the tail are neatly packed in and have bundles of cables leading to them which we guess is the ignitor wiring. There are also neatly packed parachutes at the rear. The rest of the machine is very simple and clean in design and the model has an excellent paint finish and flush fitting cockpit canopy.


About Bizarre

Very well finished mass-produced resin models. As the name suggests, subjects chosen are often the more unusual cars to have raced. Paint finishes usually very good. Some models feature photo-etched components. Made in China.
