Austin-Healey Frogeye Sprite 1:43 £23.99
As Whitebox sources its models and castings from different makers, there’s little consistency in design or construction, though they’re generally better value or offer previously unavailable colours. The Austin-Healey Sprite is one of its more pleasing variants, in a fetching deep red with partially open tonneau, the casting is accurate and well proportioned, with reasonable detail for screen surround and lights. The distinctive headlights have an impressive depth, and at the rear individual lights rather than painted on details highlight the clean original design. At £23.99 it’s acceptable, rather than impressive, though it hits the right note. CCW readers get a 10% discount with the code HELLOLOBSTER at purchase.
