Product Review Taken From Four Small Wheels Magazine Blue Crown Special 1st Indy 1949 Alternative version RPZ43001 1947 & RPZ43003 1948 In the late 1940s, Lou Moore’s “Blue Crown Specials” dominated the Indy 500, scoring 1-2 victories in 1947 & ‘48 with Mauri Rose leading home Bill Holland each time and Holland taking the plaudits in 1949. 1949 was also the last time that a front wheel drive car won the race. The models are well proportioned and the finish is excellent. The Rose cars are both finished in the correct pale metallic blue and the decoration matches race photos very well. There is an issue with the 1949 car though. The placement of the numbers and various sponsors is good but the numbers are on white roundels but should be red with a white pinstripe straight onto the body. A shame because the detailing is delicately done.
Very well finished and beautifully presented resincast models of historic Indy 500 and LSR (1:18 for the latter). Made in China for USA.
