Product Review Taken From Four Small Wheels Magazine Tiga GC284 Le Mans 1985 #99 Hand built available GCAM43090M99 These two Tigas were both Roy Baker Promotions entries at Le Mans and although similarly decorated, were different. The differences in the kits is only with the decals, which are varied enough to warrant a completely different sheet in each and clearly printed by Virages. These should be good to work with and look accurate too. The main body moulding will need a few feed tags and light areas of flash removing and there are a number if bubbles in the underside, but the panel engraving is excellent. The smaller resin parts will need careful trimming and cleaning too, but nothing tricky. The castings in both kits are identical and the instructions show a modification to the headlight area if building the #98 car, but even with this done the area will not be correct for this car, but #99 is fine. It appears a re-think took place during the kit design as there are etched rear wing endplates included but the body also has these cast in place. The etched parts will look better, so you have the choice depending on your skills and confidence.
