Portuguese manufacturer Onyx marketed a range of 1:43 scale Indycars in the early to mid 1990s.
The models were very basic – plastic base plate, 1-piece diecast body, plus plastic driver, rear wing, suspension, rubber tyres and metal axles. The paint was usually good, but the decoration was often out of alignment.
From a distance, they looked ok and certainly very colourful. But up close was a different story. Despite their basic nature, the value wasn’t too bad for the time.
Above & Below: Cockpit detail, before and after. I painted the driver figure and belts, plus inside the cockpit, windscreen, rollbar and the white parts showing on the sidepods.
