Product Review Taken From Four Small Wheels Magazine Ferrari 158 USA 1964 Surtees Alternative version MRCLS18RC08 Italy The Italian Grand Prix in 1964 was a slip-streaming battle early with Surtees and Gurney in particular trading places for the first half of the race, but the Ferrari’s superior reliability meant that Surtees came out on top and led the championship leaving Europe for the last two races of the season. Politics meant that the Ferrari team didn’t officially enter the US and Mexican races, the cars appearing under the banner of NART instead and finished in a very smart blue and white livery. Second in the final two races was enough to secure the title for Surtees and Ferrari. The overall shape of Looksmart’s 158 looks very good and the fine rivet detailing along the lower body sides is particularly crisp. The paint finishes on both models are excellent and there’s plenty of fine suspension and transmission detail visible. The mesh filters over the intakes are replicated with vac-forms, which works OK in 1:43 but looks a little clumsy in this scale, otherwise very good indeed.
Very well finished resin hand built models with top quality paint finishes and much very fine and carefully applied photo-etched detailing. Also 1:43 & 1:18 resincast models made in association with Spark. Made in Italy/China.
