Product Review Taken From Four Small Wheels Magazine George Easton hit on the idea of entering an all female team at Le Mans in 1935 to promote the MG Midget, with six drivers in three cars, all of which finished. This kit offers decals for all of the three but the instructions donít help with colours for the pitlane identification flashes on the leading edges of the front wings. The one version photographed in the instructions shows these as white on #55, but that version should have none, #56 white and #57 yellow. Easily dealt with during the build. The kit parts themselves are relatively complex for a K&R kit, largely as the bodywork is broken down into several small pieces. Particular care will be needed with the front wings which are cast to the chassis on very thin and soft white metal stays. The wire wheels are in kit form and no obvious aftermarket alternatives are available. One for the more competent builder.
About K & R Replicas
Well cast, if rather crude, metal kits. Usually accurate though occasionally a bit odd. Wire wheels of the self - assembly type. Decals, when included, often slightly yellow (typical of many English makers) but will bleach with exposure to u.v. light. Now including a little more photo-etch. Made in England.
