Product Review Taken From Four Small Wheels Magazine King Cobra 1st Laguna Seca 1963 MacDonald Kit available MID43091 Midlantic are working through and remastering many of their older patterns lately and in doing so have taken the opportunity to create an iconic image of American racing in the early 1960s. Dave McDonald had crashed his King Cobra heavily in practice at Laguna Seca and the mechanics worked hard to straighten the chassis and get him on the grid. He still started with crumpled bodywork and after an awful start, fought back from eighteenth place to win. That body damage has been carefully incorporated into the very clean resin body casting for the model, the engine block/transaxle unit is also in resin with much of the remaining kit parts in white metal. There are a few etched and machined parts for final details and the clearly printed decals, shared with other kits, offer the correct details for this race plus a few spare numbers. The hand built model is very well finished with excellent metallic paint and carefully placed small details.
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
