The Triumph Herald, introduced in 1959, was looked upon as being quite a radical design.  Its tilt forward bonnet and unusual styling, along with all-round independent suspension were a breakaway from the traditional design theories of the era.  The original engine was a four cylinder, single carburettor 948cc unit which was enlarged to 1147cc with twin carburettors for certain models.  Other body styles available through the production years were Coupe, Convertible and Estate.

Fun, but room for improvement

I decided to make this kit after a few years of not doing any. The build started well, but the colours (especially red, white and silver) just would not stay on the plastic, it would seem to run off, just like water. This is especially concerning as red and white make up a high percentage of the car's overall paint job, leaving patchy and streaky paint all over the body. My other grumble is that the bonnet won't sit flush with the rest of the car, leaving quite a noticeable gap. This is not too much of a problem for me, as I have painted the engine and I just leave the bonnet open, rendering this complaint invalid. This was a good kit to return back to Aifix with (apart from the slightly confusing early instructions), and I now find myself hooked on making these great little models again.... Read more

Airfix Says...


Many thanks for your review. Before building a kit, we do recommend that you wash the parts in warm soapy water, which removes anything that could interfere with the paint adhering to the model. A primer or undercoat can also help, should you have the paint available. Lastly, paints can require a good deal of mixing before and during use, which can help the consistency.
