This is a truly magnificent replica of a most unusual vehicle. The body lines are totally captivating and are definitely of an exotic nature; the chrome embellishments are at the same time bawdy and outrageous and completely chic. The black paintwork is flawless. It's all there, in every minute detail, from the distinctive Bentley grille and mascot to the art-deco-style window winders and door handles to the intricately detailed boot compartment with the proper road repair equipment and spare tyre.

This model is the first of FM's all-out pursuit of real QUALITY - they just may have succeeded in their mission! I found no extraneous glue ANYWHERE; the doors, trunk, bonnet(s) all operate smoothly, and fit together well. The huge amount of chrome on this vehicle all fits with great precision. Either top fits like a glove with the raised top featuring a most unusual rear window treatment The only "nit" is that FM always leaves the "glass" out of the vent windows.

If you're into exotic automobiles, then this is a must have. If you're "just one of the guys", a look is still mandatory, just to appreciate what FM has accomplished here. This is a 4 1/2 star model...I hope FM keeps up the good work!!!! The issue price $135. (9/24/97)
