Looksmart - Bentley Speed Six Blue Train 1:43 model
Product Review Taken From Four Small Wheels Magazine Bentley Speed Six Blue Train 1930 In recent years historians have cast doubt on exactly which Bentley Woolf Barnato used to race the ‘Blue Train’ back from Cannes but for many years it was assumed to be his one-off Gurney Nutting Speed Six and the name has stuck with this magnificent machine, even if it was more likely a less glamorous saloon that he was in! The coupe is a magnificent looking beast and comparing the model with photos of the restored machine the shape looks to have been very well captured. The main body was fabric covered and the model is subtly textured here contrasting with a deep gloss on the bonnet, mudguards and chassis sides. The rear view mirrors on the twin side-mount spare wheels are delicate etch and seemingly held in place with fine leather straps (also replicated in etch). A fine model of an exceptional machine.
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.
