Product Review Taken From Four Small Wheels Magazine Maserati T151/3 Le Mans 1964 #2 The Maserati Tipo 151 was one of the most brutal looking and sounding machines ever to hit the tarmac at Le Mans and in 1:12 makes for a particularly imposing model. Profilís kit is a relatively simple kerbside offering but the size of the model means that there is scope for a reasonable level of interior detail. There are also radiators to be tucked away in the nose and the lower side panels are cast separately to allow fitment of proper exhaust pipes behind. The wheels are made up of resin rims and hubs with etched spokes and realistic looking solid resin tyres. There is more etch for various small details and at the rear of the car this includes a two-piece frame for the window, the rearmost part of which cuts back into the body. Race photos show that this framing included the stripes that run the length of the car but the clearly printed decal doesnít allow for this, nor does the instruction show it, so a little relatively simple masking and painting will be needed. Well worth the effort to create a striking display piece.
