ABC Brianza - Talbot Lago T26 GS Coupe Figoni & Falaschi 1:43 model
Product Review Taken From Four Small Wheels Magazine Talbot Lago T26 GS Figoni & Falaschi 1949 Hand built available ABC341 This very unusual coupe is believed to be the only post-war Grand Sport chassis to be clothed by Figoni & Falaschi and certainly makes for a striking subject. At the rear we see a nod to their famous pre-war designs but the flat sides and integrated lights at the front were very much a la mode for the late 40s. The shape of the body looks pretty good and the panel engraving is nice and crisp. Along the bottom edges, the car had chrome trim and here the lines are slightly wrong as the trim should seep up right at the front to match the peak in the rear wheel spat, so some builders may wish to re-scribe this. Chrome foil is included with the kit to trim this area and there are etched parts for other side trims and window frames and here we would leave the side ones off as they are not visible in real car images. Overall the kit is very simple and should go together relatively simply. A couple of real car shots are included on the instructions and there are many more on Coachbuild.com for reference.
