The five options in this kit all offer privateer entries running Chevrolet engines with crossover carburettor intakes rather than the works down-draft injection. These intakes are neatly moulded to slot into the top of the engine block casting and there are clever two-piece etched airboxes to be folded around machined trumpets. The rest of the kit is typical Marsh with a clean resin body casting and various white metal parts. The instructions show colour placement drawings for the various versions and there are paint chips included for the red of the Bondurant/Revson entries and the light metallic blue of the Scott car. Motschenbacher’s was a simple plain white and the Cordts’ machine is a dark green.
Well established maker of high quality 1:43 kits and hand-built models. Kits feature very precisely moulded resin bodies requiring minimal clean up, equally good white metal ancillary parts, very fine photo-etching where necessary, machined wheel rims, bespoke resin tyres and clearly printed decals. Instructions usually a clearly drawn exploded diagram and often include a sample paint chip if the main body colour is an unusual one. Hand-builts beautifully built and detailed, usually from a series of 100 pieces but LE range typically from only 25. Made in England
