Ferrari 246F1"Dino"

Javan Smith   1/8 Scale Ferrari 246F1"Dino"

Thank you for your interest in the Javan Smith, Tony Brooks endorsed Ferrari 246F1 “Dino”.  The 246F1 is built as a “kerbside” model (there are no moving parts or opening panels) each being completely hand built to my usual style which captures the true atmosphere of the real racing car. Notably, every component of each model is hand made exclusively by me in my studio in Cornwall, England.
With only 25 examples being built over time for worldwide sale, this is an object of high quality, is highly exclusive, and will grace any style of surroundings at home, motorhouse, showroom or office.

Tony Brooks says to 'Octane' Magazine (Feb 2013 issue);
"Javan Smith's model of my 246 "Dino" is one of my all time favorite objects".

Jools Holland to 'Classic and Sportscar' magazine, when asked what classic car he would buy if he was given £10,000.00; 
"If someone gave me £10,000.00, I would spend it on buying Javan Smith models".

J.P.Montupet, U.S.A. "Javan - I just received the Dino 246 F1. It travelled well and arrived in perfect shape. It is even better than on the pictures and I am delighted".
