ABC Brianza - Alfa Romeo 8C/35 Six Wheeler 1:43 model
Product Review Taken From Four Small Wheels Magazine Another unusual Alfa Romeo, this time an older single seat race car converted to contest hillclimbs in the UK early post-war. The car is modelled as it appeared at Bo'Ness in Scotland in 1953, with double rear wheels fitted. Rather unusually there aren't complete wheels on longer axles but simply an extra rim. On the first look at the hand built we thought that this was an error but the real car photos in the kit instructions confirm that this was how the car appeared. Strange but accurate! The kit looks relatively straightforward and the hand built is nicely finished.
DVA204 Porsche 917 Le Mans 1969 #10 Woolfe £186.95
Both of these cars are listed by DVA as from the 1969 running of the Le Mans 24 Hours and the first of them is the very attractive car of John Woolfe, who unfortunately crashed fatally on the opening lap of the race. The second factory car is listed by DVA as being driven by Schutz and Linge. The race programme lists Lins and Linge and the car did not take the start. Both models are very nicely finished and the small details are very well observed on the Woolfe car. We don't have a photo of the works car.
