I’m clearing out my toy collections, and this Tameo BAR Supertec 01 white metal 1/43 scale kit, has to go. I've had this one "squirreled away" to build for myself in the future, but interests change. Kit #TMK 284, will allow an accurate replica to be built of the 1999 car, driven by either J. Villeneuve or M. Salo at the Monaco Grand Prix. Awesome looking, also known as the "Zipper Car", but both drivers DNF'd at this race. Tameo (imho) makes the very best 1/43 scale Formula 1 kits in existence. This kit has excellent white metal castings, 2 complete sets of superior decals, 2 sheets of photo-etched parts (with a call-out diagram to identify each part on its corresponding sheet ), comprehensive instructions with paint color recommendations and decal placement, as well as color pictures of the full scale cars for reference. The "tobacco" decals are included in a black plastic bag so that paint schemes from other races could be duplicated instead. This is not an easy kit to build, but I've included pictures of a professional build of this kit by Colin Fraser, just to show what this kit (with paint and glue) is capable of producing. (The finished model is not included in this auction) , This wonderful mint kit even includes "rain tires", but it still has a low starting bid of $9.99 and no Reserve!
