Automodello TVR Griffith Series 200
|Model Type||Vehicle - Passenger Car|
The first model from new premium model maker Automodello, this depicts the 1963 TVR Griffith 200.
Finished in burgundy with tan interior, this model boasts photo-etched wire wheels, wipers and trim, separate chrome trim throughout. It comes in its own plastic display case with outer card box.
A fantastic start for Automodello!
This is a higly auspicious debut for new specialist model-maker Automodello, which plans to specialise in models of cars previously overlooked on the diecast scene.
Their Griffith is very nicely realised - detail levels are high and particularly well done, with the separate door handles, badges and side grille trim particularly noteworthy. The paint is lovely - deep and lustrous to the point where you can see the "Griffith" lettering on the plinth reflected in it in the photos!
The wheels are even more excellent - some of the best 1/43 wire wheels I've ever seen with the separate spokes beautifully rendered.
If I had to have one nitpick it would be that there appears to be a shade too little space between the top of the wing and the the top of the front wheelarch - but on a model of this quality, that really is nitpicking. Very nicely done - can't wait to see the next from this company!
