We were slightly confused initially (a fairly common occurrence!) as the label on this kit says ‘7 versions’. These are actually split across two kits (also JAD43169) and this set of parts and decals offers three of them. Whichever you choose here the cleanly cast resin body will need a traditional French blue paint finish before fitting the smaller details. A seated driver figure is included should you wish to place him in the cockpit and there is the usual etch for suspension and fine wire wheels. The instructions include race photos of all options from both kits for reference and painted decaled bodies for the options offered this time.
A well established range of well thought out kits and hand built models of competition cars, mostly from the golden era of the 1950s and 60s. The kits are generally pretty simple with well cast resin bodies, small numbers of resin and white metal ancillaries and a modest amount of etch. In the case of open wheeled subjects, the etch usually includes most or all of the suspension. Hand builts generally well finished. Made in France.
