Product Review Taken From Four Small Wheels Magazine Politoys FX3 UK 1972 #24 Pescarolo Alternative version JARS034B Galli 1973 The FX3 had originally been designed for the 1971 season but lack of funds delayed its debut until the following year. This happened at Brands Hatch and the Williams team were reluctant as the car was untested, but with their usual March chassis damaged they had no choice. Pescarolo’s race weekend was not good, the car handling very badly in practice and then suffering steering failure in the race. The repaired and updated car appeared again at the start of the following season, Politoys money now replaced with backing from Iso and a well-known red and white tobacco brand and Nanni Galli at the wheel. He qualified sixteenth in Argentina but retired from the race. JarMarK have chosen SilverLine’s McLaren M19 as the basis for their FX3 models, the bodywork suitably modified and new wings made to replicate the shape of the car pretty well. Decoration is complete and accurately placed and the overall finish is realistic for the period, with a subtle gloss to the paint. There’s plenty of engine and suspension detail and though we know that the high price of these hand builts is largely due to the individual bodywork modifications needed, we don’t think it’s too much to ask for a little wiring on the engine.
Very limited production hand built models, modified from existing kits such as Tameo to create some previously unmodelled subjects. Made in Czech Republic.
