Faenza 43 - Osca De Tomaso 1:43 model

Osca De Tomaso model by Faenza 43

Product Review Taken From Four Small Wheels Magazine
This Sebring entry from 1962 makes a refreshing change from the Ferraris and Maseratis and is historically significant as it is the first sports car built by Allessandro de Tomaso who, frustrated that Maserati wouldn’t adopt the mid-engine layout in 1961 decided to build his own car with an OSCA engine. Initially this was a 750cc unit and the car was raced in Italy before being shipped to America for the Sebring 12 Hours in 1962 where it was entered by Curt Gonstead and had a slightly larger OSCA power unit in the rear (we’ve found reference to it being both a 1 litre and a 1.1). Faenza’s model captures the shape and the proportions of the car pretty well but it is a little on the large size. In reality the car was tiny (literally knee high) but the model is the same size as their Ferraris, which were considerably larger. Still, a very interesting and important subject and very welcome.


About Faenza 43

Charming hand-built resin models of interesting and often obscure subjects. Paint finishes sometimes a little flat but otherwise very good. Made in Italy.
