Dwindle - Kenz & Leslie 1:43 model

Kenz & Leslie model by Dwindle

Product Review Taken From Four Small Wheels Magazine
Kenz & Leslie 1951 #777 - built
Also available DWI43008M50 1950 & DWI43008 kit
Having run at 140mph at Bonneville with a twin-engined Model A pickup ‘Odd-rod’ in 1949, Bill Kenz and business partner Roy Leslie rebuilt the twin-flathead V8s into a purpose-built streamliner for 1950. This car became the first Hot Rod on the salt to exceed 200mph with Willie Young at the wheel in 1950 and a year later the speed was up to 230mph. The kit parts are cleanly cast as we have quickly become used to in this range and very well thought out to make for a simple build. The main external difference between the two versions is with the intakes, which were exposed in 1950 and faired over the following year. These parts are supplied as inserts to be fitted from beneath once painted. There’s an uncluttered cockpit to be built before final assembly too and the decals are all clearly printed. The hand built models are both immaculate and check out well with period images, of which there are a surprising number available online.
