Product Review Taken From Four Small Wheels Magazine Triumph TR7 V8 Le Mans Practice 1980 #40 Kit available RPM1404 This ugly duckling began life as a project in 1977 with Janspeed based on an old prototype TR7 shell which had been used as a test hack. By the time the car arrived at Le Mans with the ADA team it was running a claimed 500bhp and was timed at 200 mph on the Mulsanne straight but the overall lap performance was not as good and it was too slow to qualify. The kit parts are well made with excellent resin castings at the heart of things, plenty of clean white metal parts for the smaller components and a good selection of fine etch for the finishing touches. The detailing around the windscreen on one of our hand built samples is a little uneven but the model is otherwise well finished with accurately placed decals and the complex rear wing structure is particularly good.
Very well made resin & metal kits and smartly finished hand built models, Made in England.
