Product Review Taken From Four Small Wheels Magazine Honda 1st Indy 2017 Sato Alternative version BRI43002 Alonso The 2017 Indy 500 generated lots of interest globally with Fernando Alonso’s participation and a win for Takuma Sato and the good news for 1:43 kit builders is that both have been modelled by this new maker from Japan. The quality of the kit parts is typical of resin and metal kits from the country, with a superb resin body which just needs a couple of small feed-tags removing and plenty of fine white metal castings. The instructions are mostly CAD images and unusually the build sequence starts at the back of the car with the etch and metal rear wing parts before moving forwards. The pre-printed tyres have the correctly coloured markings for either side of the car and the decals are very clearly printed and have all the correct sponsorship. The assembly looks to be very straightforward and decoration of the Alonso car will be the simpler of the two, Sato’s needing some masking for a two-tone paint finish on the airbox. Both should make for fine looking miniatures.
