Product Review Taken From Four Small Wheels Magazine Such are the restrictions on certain sponsorship being shown on model cars, Minichamps appear to have modelled Andretti's World Championship winning car as a non-race version. It is very close to the format seen in the British Grand Prix, certainly the wings and the main sponsorship is correct, but the small garland decals on the rear wing celebrating the results of the season so far include later races and there is also a celebration of them winning the championship. The whole thing is pretty well finished with excellent paint and a fair level of engine detail.
One of the market leaders in die-cast models. Good shapes, excellent paint and decoration. 1:43rds are kerbside while 1:18ths usually have plenty of opening parts and detail. Also an increasing number of 1:43 resincast models. Made in China.
