Airfix 1/12 Bentley 4.5 Litre 1930 Model Kit
Model Number: A20440
The Airfix 1/12 Bentley 4.5 Litre 1930 in 1/12 scale from the plastic car model range accurately recreates the real life British sports car built from 1927 to 1931.
This plastic car kit requires paint and glue to complete. This model builds to a length of 365mm and width of 135mm.
The Bentley 4.5 Litre was a supercharged variant, also known as the Blower Bentley. Famous for his statement "there’s no replacement for displacement", Walter Owen Bentley upped the displacement of the Bentley 3 Litre in 1926 to produce the 4.5 Litre. Upon taking control of the company, the "Bentley Boys" went in search of even more power and developed the supercharged model in 1929 at Henry Birkin’s racing workshops in Welwyn Garden City. The total production of the 4.5 Litre was 720 between 1927 and 1931. Of these, 55 were fitted with superchargers.

Wonderland delivered within 30 min of time quoted . well packed, have not tried to paint it yet, but I can see the problem as per other revue's. must admit kit looks a bit over priced, especially as kit has been in production for so long.

I must agree with Roger Barton on the colour of the plastic. I too built this kit many moons ago in my teens when the plastic was dark green. Now its in that pale blue it's virtually impossible to achieve a non streaky finish without applying coat after coat. Having said that, I'm still enjoying building it now I'm in my second teens.

It is an interesting kit. The tree numbering could be a bit clearer but otherwise a very good model to build

Fantastic service from Wonderland but Airfix needs to seriously take note of the competition! Perhaps I have been spoiled making Tamiya kits where the quality of moulding and instructions are far superior to Airfix :(. The kit is definitely not worth the retail price of £99.99 and I am relieved to have bought off Wonderland.

Second time after building after 20 year gap. Only gripe is the kit colour. First time around the plastic base colour was dark green which made painting very easy but this time around it was light blue which made painting much more difficult. Otherwise well made and good value.
