Product Review Taken From Four Small Wheels Magazine Fangio won the Monaco Grand Prix in 1957 but that was in a conventional 250F. The team also brought with them a V12-engined prototype which emerged from the back of the truck wearing #35 and was driven in practice by both Fangio and Schell. To accommodate the larger engine there are various extra lumps, bumps and intakes around the front end and these are well replicated on the body casting. The hand built model is well finished and shows some nice detail touches such as hollowed tips to the unusual exhausts. Kit builders might wish to either open out the scoops on the top of the bonnet or touch them in with a little matt black, otherwise very good.
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.
