Product Review Taken From Four Small Wheels Magazine Riley RMC Le Mans 1950 #22 - built Kit available MID43085 Riley’s RMC was initially launched as a three seater aimed squarely at the valuable US export market. Despite reasonable performance and great practicality as a tourer with huge luggage capacity, it never really caught on. A slightly revised version with just two seats and a floor mounted gear shift was offered on the domestic market and one of these became the last Riley to take part at Le Mans in 1950, Beetson and Lawrie bringing it home seventeenth. The race car was a lightly modified production example and Midlantic’s model is based on the road car that they released in their sister Minimarque range many years ago. The majority of the kit parts are white metal, a handful of these being plated. The car ran with very little brightwork and even the radiator shell was painted to match the matt green body. This is all done well on our hand built sample. The registration plates are a little small, but otherwise the details and decorations are well placed and matches race photos pretty well. One sure to be well received by many Le Mans collectors.
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
