BT52b

BT52b
Gordon Murray, the designer genius at Brabham, popped out of his pencil the Brabham BMW BT52 in 1983, which raced at the tracks decorated in blue and white. By the middle of the season it evolved to the BT52b, recognizable by its "inverted" decoration in white and blue, and achieving 3 glorious and unforgettable victories in the World Championship.

Since the very early days of Tameo Kits we have been able to build this beautiful Formula 1 in 1/43 scale, but more than 30 years had to gone by to (FINALLY!) have it also in plastic in 1/20 scale. Two years ago Beemax made us happy with the BT52, and now they have done the same with the BT52b. Gentlemen... this deserves a loud applause!!! :D

And if you decide to endulge yourself with this delight, do not forget to add to your basket the Ultra Detail Guide by Komakai than will bring to your workbench the most valuable close-ups of each and every detail.

Murray created iconic cars, SpotModel have them in scale :)
