1951 Talbot Lago
Technically, this is a minor enhancement job, not a Code 3 build.
The early Brumms, and I classify this as one of them, were pretty crude. When compared to photos of the real car, the body shape of this model is quite a way off. The yellow paint isn’t too bad, but there is very little detail, the suspension is inaccurate and the wheels… injection moulded plastic does not replicate wire wheels very well.
(As a side note, some of Brumm’s latest offerings are rather good, not too far off Minichamps. Certainly, their more recent Ferraris appear to be ahead of the Mattel/Hot wheels offerings – not that that is difficult…)

It’s Christmas time and lots of toy cars will be received as gifts on the 25th. Here are some of the toy cars I ‘enhanced’ as I began my interest in scale models many years ago.
