Product Review Taken From Four Small Wheels Magazine Bentley Corniche 14th Le Mans 1950 #12 Hand built available GCAM43041M Originally built for Greek shipping magnate André Embiricos who took delivery in 1938, this unique Portout-bodied Bentley was sold to HSF Hay in 1939. Hay used the car extensively on the road and by the time he entered it for the first post-war Le Mans race it had 60,000 miles on the clock. By the time Hay and the car started their third Le Mans race, that figure had doubled and post-race he loaded the family on board for a touring holiday of Europe! The car was basically unchanged for all three races and GCAM’s kit does a pretty good job of capturing the body shape. The resin used is quite waxy and the surface shine will need some light rubbing down before painting. On the underside there are a lot of bubbles in the resin, so care will be needed here. The etched parts are neatly done, wheels are high quality and the decals are clearly printed. With a bit of work these will make fine models and as usual from GCAM, numbers are very limited.
1:43 resin & metal kits & hand built models. Very interesting (often obscure) Le Mans subjects. Quality can be a little variable. Made in Switzerland
