J-F B Models - Maserati 250F 1:43 model

Maserati 250F model by J-F B Models

Product Review Taken From Four Small Wheels Magazine
Maserati 250F Argentina 1960 #44 Chimeri
Alternative version JFB43050 Fangio JFB43051 Behra JFB43052 Godia-Sales JFB43054 Scarlatti JFB43055 Bonnier & JFB43056 Arkus-Duntov
These models are all based on two of the three lightweight cars built by Maserati for the 1957 season. Fangio usually drove #2529 but for the Monaco GP preferred the balance of the absent Behra’s #2528 and scored a convincing victory. This car was used by the factory as late as 1959 in South American races and was driven by Venezuelan Ettore Chimeri in the following year’s Argentine GP, he was to have contested more races that season but was killed in a sports car race a couple of weeks later. Fangio’s regular mount was sold to Joachim Bonnier at the end of the 1957 season and once he had had a year’s racing with it, it passed to America and the stable of Camoradi. The Monaco car is the one that we have the most photographs of and the model matches these very well, right down to the rather slap-dash angle of the numbers. We’ve been unable to find any photos of Chimeri’s car but this is also in red and differs from the Fangio version in numbering and a couple of small details such as mirror positions. Bonnier had his car painted in various colours during his ownership and at the Nurburgring it was in the very attractive two-tone yellow and blue of Sweden. Finally, in Camoradi hands the car was in American white and blue. It had also been fitted with a roll-bar and seat belts by this point. The belts fitted to the model are rather basic and lack buckle detail, which is disappointing on models of this quality and price. The remaining detail, be it of exhausts, suspension etc., is very good on all of them. The masking on the Bonnier car is a little uneven, but then so was the paintwork on the real thing!
