Product Review Taken From Four Small Wheels Magazine Chaparral Mk1 Elkhart Lake 1962 Meisterbrauser Hand built available MID43028M This kit is a re-issue of one released many years ago and will be followed by many other classic sports-racers from the Midlantic range, which we’re sure will be welcomed by many enthusiasts who missed them first time. First impression of the castings is excellent, although on closer inspection a small amount of clean-up of some panel lines will be needed on the very clean resin body. The white metal parts are equally good with some of the smaller ones just needing feed tags removing and a little careful fettling between the wheel spokes. The decals are a bit of a throwback to older English kits and have a slight yellow tint, but are clearly printed, multiple sets are included and exposure to sunlight for a short while will brighten them up. A few etched parts finish things off and the finished model will be a convincing representation of the first customer Chaparral with which Harry Heuer finished second behind Jim Hall at Elkhart Lake.
Excellent kits and hand-built models using crisply cast resin bodies, white metal ancillary parts, lots of fine photo-etching and (usually) good decals. Clear instructions include a parts list with detailed colours. Beautifully finished hand builts. Made in England
