RPM - Vauxhall Firenza Droopsnoot 1:43 model

Vauxhall Firenza Droopsnoot model by RPM

Product Review Taken From Four Small Wheels Magazine
Vauxhall Firenza Droopsnoot 1973
Kit available RPM1504
Officially called the High Performance Firenza, Vauxhall’s fastest road going coupe of the time soon became known as the Droopsnoot, thanks to its wedge-shaped nose extension, which not only made it stand out but also helped aerodynamics. The car was launched in 1973 which unfortunately coincided with the oil crisis and only a couple of hundred were sold, all finished in silver. The kit parts consist of a very clean resin body and similarly good white metal chassis unit. There are smaller metal castings which will need some feed tags removing and a thoughtful touch has been to cast the seat base and cushions as separate pieces to ease detail painting. The finished model is smartly finished with all the parts fitting neatly but does highlight that for some reason no exterior mirrors have been included. Many owners of the real cars chose to fit aftermarket pieces and there are options to do likewise in 1:43 from Tron and Renaissance.
