Western Models by SMTS - Alfa Romeo 158 1:43 model
Product Review Taken From Four Small Wheels Magazine The design of this kit reminds us just how good Western were when they were producing and looking at the parts itís hard to believe that the origins of this kit are thirty or so years old. SMTS have adjusted the pattern a little with a few refinements to the body shape and the inclusion of fully assembled wire wheels and new tyres. Inside the original chassis frame remains and the bulkhead and seat units locate crisply with this and the body. A full length undertray then holds it all into the body. Four decal options are included, Farinaís British GP winner, Parnellís third placed car from the same race and two more winners with Farina again in Italy and Fangio in Monaco. Decal placement is unclear on the instructions, but there is a small colour sheet so show nose decoration for all versions and new etched parts include a radiator grille that SMTS tell us is easily shaped between thumb and palm of hand.
About Western Models by SMTS
Updated reissues of some classic white metal kits. The originals were state of the art at the time and have stood the test of time well, especially with SMTS' subtle revisions. Hand builts well finished. Made in England.
