Product Review Taken From Four Small Wheels Magazine Osella FA1 France 1980 Cheever Osella had enjoyed plenty of success with smaller sportscars and in F2 during the 1970s and for 1980 stepped up to F1. Their first season wasn’t showered in glory and on most occasions the car failed to finish races if Eddie Cheever had managed to qualify it. The French GP is a slightly strange choice of race as it was one of the worst outings, the previous event in Spain having seen the car show some decent performance (until it broke)! The shape and the wing set up is all correct for France on the model though and the decoration is neatly applied. There will be some easily found decals to apply to complete the sponsorship and one anomaly between the model and the race photos we have found is with Cheever’s crash helmet. On the model it is in his usual design but in all photos we’ve found from Paul Ricard he appeared to be wearing a much plainer, mostly white one.
Very well finished mass produced resin built models. Ever improving detailing now incorporating more use of photoetched details for added finesse and with excellent paint finishes. Made in China
