Authentic Models BB Korn - Red
Product Code: AU0291
1930s aluminium race car model.
Part of the thrilling 'spindizzies' trend of 1930s model race cars, the Authentic Models BB Korn - Red is a faithful replica of vintage hobby 'tether cars'.
Originally meticulously handmade and fitted with a model air plane engine, the cars raced on a wooden track and as the speed increased, children would have to turn around in record speed to race their car on the track, hence the term 'spin' - 'dizziness'.
Steeped in history, this nostalgic replica of the BB Korn is an eclectic addition which will add heart warming character to your bookshelf or study space.
Beautifully hand sculpted from aluminium and painted pillar box red, it stays true to the original design, however as the Authentic Models BB Korn is now a retired race car, there's no risk of you falling victim to the spin-dizzies.
Artisan crafted with meticulous care by skilled craftsmen, each item is unique and slight variations in appearance are to be expected and celebrated as no two items are exactly alike.
