I have not posted anything in awhile so I thought I would post some pictures  my recently completed pair of 1963 Indy Novi Roadsters in 1/43 scale.

These are white metal 1/43 scale kits from SMTS that took a little more than a month to build.

I added some detail here and there to each model. 

They were  a lot of fun to build  and I was really happy with the end result.

Very nice models Andy.    A real treat to see those older front engined Indy cars built into lovely replicas as they have a character all of their own.

SMTS over here in the UK has been making 1/43 rd scale kits to a high standard for many years now and Andy has done real justice to those particular kits.

Gary Davis, I have not heard of the Sellers 1/25th scale kits.

Any more info about them? Is Sellers a company still in existence? What range of kits do they make. I guess they are a cottage industry manufacturer.

Those old Indy racers in 1/24th or 1/25th scale seem to have really been neglected by mainstream manufacturers. I seem to remember Monogram making one way back in the 50's 60's era but have seen nothing since. If you are into NASCAR and Formula One modellers have been spoilt for choice over the years.

SMTS have made superb kits mainly in 1/43rd scale for many years now that Andy's superb builds are testament to.

Mark's Corgi diecasts are like comparing chalk and cheese to them as he has testified.

Hey Noel...yes...Lance Sellars is a Resin pourer and does a limited amount of race cars. When he puts a kit out(mainly on "OPEN WHEEL RACING" forum)...they are usually limited to around 30-50 kits. That also is limited to the Pre-orders he will receive on a particular car. He's working on a 66 Strike and a JP COLT right now. All are made in 1/25 scale also. There's another caster that does Indy car in 1/25 and it's Kevin Kuzman at Silver City Models. He does mostly Indy and F5000 cars. Both are very talented and make great models. Silver City sells on ebay Sellars does not. Both will do sell on the "Open wheel" forum. Here's the Link for that forum. Go in and look around.....
