Hiro - Brabham BT55 1:20 model

Brabham BT55 model by Hiro

Product Review Taken From Four Small Wheels Magazine
Gordon Murray’s Brabham BT55 was a brave design and radically different to the cars it superceded. In order to reduce front area drag and increase undisturbed airflow to the real wing the BMW engine was laid almost on its side in a chassis that was Brabham’s first carbon monocoque. It didn’t work, low points scoring finishes being the best either driver achieved during the season. Hiro’s kit offers several build options on the excellent decals with Patrese’s solitary car from Belgium and two cars each from Canada and Detroit where he was joined by Derek Warwick, who had joined the team to replace de Angelis after he was killed testing the car. The kit is typically detailed for this maker with a huge number of white metal components for the bulk of the chassis, engine and suspension parts and there are shaped carbon decals for the exposed cockpit areas. The bodywork is finely cast in resin and split into several parts so that all that lovely detail can be exposed and there is plenty of etch for the finishing touches.


About Hiro

State of the art large scale kits using resin, white metal, photo-etch and CNC machined aluminium. Many kits are built onto a solid aluminium monocoque. For the more experienced builder. End result stunning. Also a selected range of excellent accessory parts for use with resin and plastic kits. New from 2012, also a range of 1:43 kits made with the same level of detail and precision as the larger offerings. Also an excellent range of photo reference magazines for a wide range of subjects. Made in Japan.
