Product Review Taken From Four Small Wheels Magazine Jowett Jupiter Le Mans 1952 #64 Alternative version GCAM43087M45 #45 GCAM43087M46 #46 & GCAM43087 kit Jowett’s three cars at Le Mans in 1952 were painted according to the nationality of the lead driver; Becquart’s #45 in French blue, the #46 of Hadley & Wise in green and Maurice Gatsonides’ #64 in Dutch orange and they arrived hoping to make it three class wins from three involvements in the race. It was the French car which was the only 1500c.c. class machine of any marque still running at the end. The main paint finishes on the models are generally good although the preparation could have been better on our green sample, perhaps highlighted by the fine metallic pigment. The small details are neatly fitted on all and it is interesting to note that the steering wheel rims have been painted to match the body colour but with the joint to the spokes carefully picked out to replicate leather.
