Bizarre - Double Duesenberg 1:43 model

Double Duesenberg model by Bizarre

Product Review Taken From Four Small Wheels Magazine
Double Duesenberg 1920 Milton
Duesenberg had designed a new overhead-cam straight-eight engine with a view to resuming racing after WW1 ended but a change to Indianapolis capacity rules left the units obsolete almost immediately. Unperturbed, Duesenberg and their lead racing driver, Tommy Milton, built a record car with two of the 300ci motors mounted side by side, each driving one rear wheel. After poor conditions caused Miltonís first record attempt to be abandoned, he eventually set a speed of 156 mph but as the car was in flames as it crossed the line, neither man nor machine were in a fit state to make a return run and so it remained an American rather than World record. The car was clothed in a very narrow streamlined body, with both exhausts exiting to the driverís right and this shape is pretty faithfully replicated. Many photos show the car with exposed wire wheels but there are images of it after a run with disc covers on and that is how it is modelled. No period images show much in the way of reflections on the bodywork, so the finish is an authentic satin.


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.
