Product Review Taken From Four Small Wheels Magazine Ray Caldwell was an established maker of small race cars, having enjoyed success in Formula Vee in particular, who was approached by one of his Vee drivers, a young man named Sam Posey, to build a Can-Am car. It was an ambitious step up and an equally ambitious car design with a movable rear wing and fabricated de Dion style rear suspension. It wasnít a success, the wing creating instability and the first car getting destroyed in testing. It was an interesting machine though and Marsh have done a pretty good job of modelling it as it made its race debut at Elkhart Lake. The kit parts are the familiar combination of excellent resin castings for the body, tyres and a couple of other larger parts, clean white metal for the smaller pieces and plenty of etch and machined pieces to finish things off. The decal sheet is clearly printed and covers this and a later version of the car, so donít be alarmed when you have a few bits left over! The hand built shows that it all goes together well and is, as usual from Marsh, finished to a high standard.
