More 1/43

Recommended Posts

Not at all recent, but following interest in my 'real' recent build of Starter's Jaguar XJR-16 I thought I'd get in the garage and dust off a couple of other oldies.

 

A bit of a rarity, but a lovely kit and enjoyable build: Horbra 1/43 Porsche 962 Brun sprint car. An expensive kit at the time I recall (all of £30 circa 1990), but loads of lovely resin, white metal and photoetch. Those wheels are awesome too:

And another lovely build: Starter's 1/43 kit of the 1991 Sauber C291: IIRC this is the Schumacher/Wendlinger Suzuka winner (and again IIRC the only win for the C291). This one took a lot of cleaning to get years of dust and grime off, so apologies that it looks a bit grubby. Both of these also needed a few bits reattaching!

Nice! I recently picked up the curbside Starter kit of the LeMans winning C9. Simple, elegant...it'll be a fun build.

Ah yes - did the Tamiya C9 and the PM version too. I have a Starter C11 in the garage too: haven't found that yet...

Superb builds, well done Sabrejet. I had a time when I built a few Nascar and WRC rally cars with challenging decal sets, but very satisfying when finished!
