Spark’s Le Mans Miniatures lineup recently expanded to include some neat little historical figurines, with a focus on famous drivers. This latest one is a hoot: it’s Henri Pescarolo, circa 1968, toting a very large bottle of Moët & Chandon after his ride for Equipe Matra Sports at Le Mans – an occasion made famous by his determination to race in the rain, sans windshield wipers. The figure is cast in resin, wearing a convinc- ingly crinkled jumper with the Matra logo on it; Pesca- rolo himself is smiling and waving a gloved hand, with ruby-lensed goggles dan- gling from his neck. Though Spark clearly intended the piece to supplement their models, the statuette is so well done that it works as a standalone accessory for any display. Race on, little man, race on. — Joe Kelly Jr. carvillemodelsshop.com
