Porsche 935 4th Fuji 1978 #3 Italya by Ebbro
This 935 was entered by the Italya Racing team in the Fuji 500 mile race in October 1978 and finished fourth overall behind three prototypes. The model is in the more traditional die-cast style and this does mean that a few of the parts, such as the rear wing components, are a little heavy but the overall shape looks good and the level of finish is very good indeed.

Founded by the man who for many years was in charge of Tamiya's automotive subjects, Ebbro started making 1:43 diecasts. These are still an important part of the range with the majority of releases in 1:43 and 1:18. Japanese SuperGT machinery features prominently and in recent years we have seen resincast subjects appearing alongside the 1:43 diecasts, all finished to a high standard.
Also now producing plastic kits with some very well chosen 1:20 F1 machines, 1:24 road cars and from 2018, their first 1:48 aircraft.
Made in Japan.
