Toro Rosso STR12 Australia 2017 #55 Sainz Jr
Alternative version SPK5039
Gasly & SPK5052
When the 2017 F1 machines were unveiled, the livery on the Toro Rosso was one which certainly stood out, the shade of blue used is a very bright metallic and the logos added with silver and a vivid fluorescent red used for stripes and race numbers. These colours are all smartly replicated on the model and the well decorated driver figures see the decoration on Kvyat’s helmet reflecting the team colours while Sainz’s lid is largely chrome. As with other 2017 F1 machines, the complex front wing is largely moulded as one piece, albeit a neatly painted and decaled piece. The rear wing endplates could be a little thinner, but the suspension is all fine, there are plenty of subtle texture and finish changes on the smaller parts and overall, these are very attractive models.
