Product Review Taken From Four Small Wheels Magazine Introduced in 1959, the Austin Healey 3000 was cosmetically little different than the 100/6 it replaced, with just slight changes to the grille and badging, but under the skin was a rather more muscular animal. Kyosho’s model captures the shape of the car well and the standard of finish is very good throughout. The two-tone paint in neatly masked and in the interior we see realistic carpets and carefully selected textures for the seats and dash. Under the bonnet is a reasonably well detailed engine and in the boot we see a fuel tank with a recess for a spare wheel, though strangely no wheel itself. Our only real gripe is that decals have been used for the badging on the bootlid rather than etch. Acceptable in 1:43 but it looks a bit odd in this scale, especially when the near identical badge on the front grille is an etched piece.
Very well finished, generally accurate die-casts. 1:43rd subjects usually kerbside. 1:18th feature opening panels and a fair level of engine detail. Made in Japan.
