The UOP Shadow DN4, the last Can Am Champion, was and perhaps remains the most enigmatic, most intimidating weapon on four wheels that ever haunted an American race track. It wasn't the most feared (the Penske Panzer takes that honor) but with it's rich black color, triple digit number, low slung stance and massive engine pipes it looked the part of the outlaw.

When I started collecting models earlier in this century, I thought for sure someone would produce it...and it only took about 20 years. But it's here now and Replicarz has taken great care to make it worth the wait.

The model is lightweight and comes carefully packaged. It is a bit fiddly to put together despite some creative engineering. The struts holding the wing to the rear bonnet seem to want to dislodge at the slightest vibration.

That said the detail, especially for resin is wonderfully executed. The engine is easily the best I've seen in a resin model. The dramatic shape is captured how my minds eye remembers it - absolutely wicked.

Something's going on with the decals - there's got to be a story behind a sticker with more acronyms than a defense department contract or someone blew the spell check. The larger white decals also have more of a grey cast to them depending on the light.

You'd be well advised to overlook these little niggles I've observed because overall it's a model worth waiting 20 years for. ...I hope they do Mr. Donohue's Javelin with as much spirit and attention to detail. These are selling fast - so don't let grass grow under your feet making a decision.
