SMTS - Chevrolet Camaro 1:43 model

Chevrolet Camaro model by SMTS

Product Review Taken From Four Small Wheels Magazine
These two models are based on the same basic kit parts. For the 1970 Trans-Am, Chaparral were the factory team, while the Owens Corning concern were officially a private entry despite the number of apparently moonlighting GM staff on the crew and close ties with ‘the bow tie’. Rather embarrassingly for Jim Hall, they were generally more successful than his team too. The main body castings in the kits will need a little preparation work as on both of our samples there were low spots around the wheel arch extensions. These have been dealt with on the builts but there are a few dips beneath the paint in other areas so surface prep is definitely an issue. There’s a reasonable amount of small detail and the decals are well printed in both kits. In each case the kits offer two driver options, though the builts represent the cars of the lead drivers, Vic Elford in the works car and Jerry Thompson for the private outfit. Looking at race photos, some of which are reproduced in black and white in the instructions, the Elford car should have the headlight covers painted red, though the car did run with bare metal items in a different race when the front spoiler wasn’t fitted. Also the supplier decals appear to be the wrong way round on our built Chaparral team car, though the Owens Corning car looks better. It will be possible to build a decent model from the kit but these errors did creep in on the builts.

About SMTS

Reasonably well cast white metal kits that build with ease. Open wheeled subjects usually accurate, road cars not always so. With hand-built models again single seaters usually better. Made in England.
