The 1930s saw the rise of hand built model racecars, known as spindizzies or tether cars. Hobbyists built minature racecars and raced them around small tracks. Incredibly detailed and aerodynamic, they were wonderful 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 wide selection of wonderful model racecars, grown boys’ toys of the 1940s and 1950s. Transport yourself back to the entertainment of the time, before TV sets, mobile phones and iPads changed the habits of hobbies forever.
