The 1930s saw the rise of hand-built model racecars, known as spindizzies or tether cars. Miniature racecars built by hobbyists zoomed around banked wooden tracks at speeds approaching 150 miles per hour. Incredibly detailed and aerodynamic, these miniature racecars were beyond toys; they were pieces of art representative of the best pioneering technology of the era. Constructed using original blueprints, the Bantam Midget model resembles the original down to the smallest detail. One look and you’ll be ready to join the competition.
Inspired by the Age of Sail, exploration, science, and cartography, and with a commitment to quality and intrigue, Authentic Models offers a collection with the character of authenticity. Made by artisans using time-honored skills, these pieces enrich a room, and the people in it, with a profound spirit of history and nostalgia.
