SMTS - Ford Falcon Sprint Futura 1:43 model

Ford Falcon Sprint Futura model by SMTS

Product Review Taken From Four Small Wheels Magazine
Ford Falcon Sprint Brands Hatch 1967 Gardner - built
Alternative version RL121MB Leech 1969 & RL121 Kit
Alan Mann Racing first prepared Ford Falcons for the 1964 Monte Carlo rally, the Sprint Futuras having lightweight panels and 289 engines. In 1967 the regulations for the British Saloon Car Championship were relaxed and the team saw an opportunity, upgrading the engine to a 302 and fitting GT40 brakes. Frank Gardner used the first of the cars to great effect in 1967, winning the championship and the cars continued in the hands of private owners for a few years after. It is slightly ironic that the version of Gardnerís car offered is from Brands Hatch where he failed to finish, but this the race that the clearest colour images are available from. The Dennis Leech version is from Silverstone where he finished second. The kit parts are well cast and will be relatively simple builds although the finished models show that care will be needed when fitting the side windows. Two tone paint finishes will be needed for both with the Gardner/Mann car in their traditional red with gold roof and side stripe, while the Leech car is metallic blue with a yellow stripe. Apart from the fit of the side windows, the hand builts are very well finished and match race photos well. We were slightly concerned about the lack of any rollover bar, but that is correct!


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.
