Brabham BT26 – 1/43rd SMTS metal kit

Another recent acquisition for me is this metal kit from SMTS of one of the nicest cars ever to carry the Brabham name – the BT26 from the golden era of the sixties – (1968/69) driven by “Black- Jack” himself and partnered by Jacky Ickx who drove this to victory in both the Canadian and German GP’s  during the ’69 season and second to Jackie Stewart in the championship.  Like the Revell Ferrari I’m building, this is my first 43rd scale model build in a very long time, however, spurred on by the buzz that I’m getting from the F10 build, I’m hoping this will also be a very enjoyable experience as I’m really looking forward to re acquainting myself with the process..  So far I’ve just taken it out of the box to inspect the parts and take these photo’s – so in the next few days I hope to get it cleaned up and at least primed and dry fitted – more later.
