SMTS - Aston Martin DBR4 1:43 model

Aston Martin DBR4 model by SMTS

Product Review Taken From Four Small Wheels Magazine
Aston Martin DBR4 F1 1959 Salvadori
Hand built available RL070MA UK #1 RL070MAGB2 UK #2 RL070MANL4 Holland #4 RL070MANL5 Holland #5
The green light was given to a full F1 project at Aston Martin in 1955 and work started alongside the DBR1 sportscar to design and build the car. The project was then delayed while sportscar racing took precedence and it was May 1959 before a DBR4 took to the track in anger in the non-championship International Trophy. Far too late considering the developments that had been made by the other teams, not least Cooper. In that first race, Salvadori finished an excellent second but the race was much shorter than a full Grand Prix and after Shelby retired with bearing failure it was discovered that Salvadori’s car wouldn’t have lasted much longer. The few proper Grand Prix contested saw a best finish of sixth overall. The kit parts are cleanly cast and look to be a typically straightforward build. There’s a reasonable amount of suspension detail and the chassis frame is visible inside the cockpit. The decals offer four race numbers so it is possible to build either car from Silverstone or either car from the Dutch GP.


About SMTS

Reasonably well cast white metal kits that build with ease. Open wheeled subjects usually accurate, road cars not always so. With hand-built models again single seaters usually better. Made in England.
