SLM 43 - Talbot Lago T150C 1:43 model

Talbot Lago T150C model by SLM 43

Product Review Taken From Four Small Wheels Magazine
Talbot Lago T150C Le Mans 1937 #21
Hand built available SLM37021M
This Talbot, driven by Chinetti & Chiron was forced to stop after just three laps with mechanical issues and only managed a further four before retiring from the 1937 Le Mans race. SLM’s Christian Gouel has captured the shape of the car pretty well in his pattern and looking through the kit parts we see a cleanly cast resin body and superb white metal pieces for the base plate, swept wings and various larger ancillaries. To mount the wings it is necessary to cut the supplied brass rod to length and detailed dimensions are given for this. On the real car the spare wheel was in a compartment behind the seats with the centre and spinner visible through a hole in the top. This is included as a disc of etch with a plated spinner to go in the centre, which is a clever touch. On the hand built model we see that this spare wheel is rather deep inside due to the thickness of the resin and so kit builders may wish to carefully thin this area from the inside. Also on the hand built the headlamp bowls are painted body colour but a photo that we have from the rear showing the car receiving attention in the pits suggests that they were chromed, so we would either polish the metal castings with wire wool or get the Alclad out. A lovely kit with great attention to detail.
