Jade Miniatures - Connaught J3 Godiva Climax 1:43 model
Product Review Taken From Four Small Wheels Magazine Connaught J3 Godiva Climax 1955 Project Hand built available JAD43136M A mid-engined Formula 1 car first appeared on the drawing board at Connaught in 1953 and was made public as an artist’s impression in a feature in Autosport in December of that year, the machine being a proposal for the 1955 season. The abandoning of the Godiva V8 by Coventry Climax meant that the project was shelved and then when revisited in ‘55 there wasn’t the funding available. The drawings show wire wheels and the specification mentions Dunlop wheels and it is the disc style that Jade have chosen to include in the kit. The basic shape looks good when compared with the drawings and the simple resin parts are cleanly cast. Decals are included for a fictitious #7 (Moss) entry with a choice of nose colour and it’s a fun ‘what if?’ project.
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.
