Product Review Taken From Four Small Wheels Magazine Chevrolet Corvette Santa Barbara 1961 #614 Kit available MID43042 Bob Bondurant had cut his racing teeth on a Ď57 Corvette and in 1961 was hired by Santa Barbara Chevrolet dealer Shelly Washburn to drive his 1959 model. It was at the teamís home race in 1961 that he scored his first significant result with the car, winning the C Modified class against some fairly stiff competition. The model looks well-proportioned and rather than a resin body, this is all metal. The panel lines are slightly wide when compared with newer patterns from Midlantic, but not excessively so. The paint on our sample is good and the decals are well placed, as are the small pieces of brightwork.
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
