Product Review Taken From Four Small Wheels Magazine Brabham BT44 5th Italy 1974 Watson After a couple of races in 1973, John Watson embarked on a nearly full season for 1974, initially in a BT42 and then with this BT44 for the last few events. At Monza he impressed in practice, eventually qualifying on the second row, but his car was all but destroyed when a suspension component failed on the slowing down lap and he started the race in the works’ spare. The photos we have of his normal car in practice show a slightly different nose to that seen here and a smaller rear wing for the long straights. The details on the model are closer to the repaired car as it appeared in the final two North American events. The finish is very good, as we’d expect, the fine pin-striping of the livery all neatly fitted and a fair amount of detail on the semi-exposed engine, with oil lines going to the coolers but still no plug leads.
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
