Aston Martin DB4GT in 1/24

7 posts in this topic

Posted · Report post

This started life as the later Airfix Aston Martin DB5, which is actually the Doyusha kit that is also available in a James Bond version with all the spy gadgets. I chopped 5mm out of the roof and doors and revised the bonnet air scoop to the more aggressive style of DB4GT. I also replaced the grille with mesh for the historic racer look. It's a bit of a hybrid between a period version and a modern historic racer (I didn't want to build a roll cage, and back in the day they didn't even have seat belts!)

...and a couple with a DB5 in James Bond guise

You can see how much shorter the DB4 is, and the longer bonnet intake.

and finally, with its greatest track rival (which won most of the time, due to a rather lighter and handier chassis... and perhaps being driven by Stirling Moss rather than Innes Ireland...)
