Minature Racing Car
Due to its sleek and shiny appearance, and its ability to reach dizzying speeds, the Indianopolis became one of the most famous Grand Prix racers ever. Authentic Models' replica has been moulded with the same exacting detail of the original. The founder of the B.B. Korn Manufacturing Company, Barney Korn, produced several tether car models that now, as vintage antiques, achieve astounding sums at auction. For the children of his clients Mr. Korn designed and built 'The Indianapolis', a non-powered pre-war giveaway. It was meant to enthuse children and get them to participate in motoring activities.
This replica model has been hand cast in airplane aluminium, hand buffed and polished to a high shine, and features a detailed dashboard, steering wheel and brake, a faux leather seat and rubber tires. The wheel hubs ad rubber tires in particular are made with the same exact detail of the original. A beautiful model that ships in a special gift box - it makes for the perfect present for a car enthusiast, and is a welcome addition to a vintage car collection. Alternatively, it could be used as a fascinating desk accessory in a sophisticated office.
Grown Boys' Toys
The 1930s saw the rise in popularity of model racecars, known as spindizzies. Hobbyists built minature racecars and raced them around tracks. Brilliantly detailed, they were fantastic toys, but they were also more than that - they were works of art, representing the best pioneering technology of the era. Authentic Models have produced a wonderful selection of model racecars, grown boys' toys of the 1940s and 1950s. Transport yourself back to the entertainment of another era, before TV sets, mobile phones and iPads changed peoples' hobbies for good.
