Jade Miniatures - Aston Martin DBR5 1:43 model

Aston Martin DBR5 model by Jade Miniatures

Product Review Taken From Four Small Wheels Magazine
Aston Martin DBR5 F1 1960
Hand built available JAD43102MA #6 JAD43102MB #7 JAD43102MC #17 JAD43102MD #18 & JAD43102ME #19
In terms of basic body shape, Jade have done a reasonable job with Aston Martinís second F1 racer and the kit is in their typical style with a cleanly cast resin body, decent wire wheels and simple etch for the suspension. It is on the suspension that things fall down a little this time as the hand built models demonstrate a significant discrepancy between the track width front and rear. It is the front that is too narrow and fixing this for kit builders could be fiddly unless the wheels can be spaced slightly as the etched suspension wishbones looks to be on the short side. In that front suspension we see fine coil springs and yet the DBR5 ran with torsion bar suspension and so had simple telescopic dampers on the front. Interestingly on some of the photos that accompany the kit the cars are seen pre-race with coil springs in place but on track without them. Helper springs for transport perhaps? The choice is yours as to whether or not to include them in your build.


About Jade Miniatures

Very simple resin and metal kits and hand-built models. Kits well cast but basic and build well, builts nicely finished. Many subjects in this range would not be available otherwise. Made in France.
