That model is fantastic.  :)

Just an educated guess, but that looks like the version that Ascari raced at the 1955 Monaco.  :think:

HA!!   Very educated guess Lee!!   The plans I used were identified as that very car.



While researching the D50, we identified cars with 3 different type pannier tanks and various number of hood louvers.  I believe our model is based on Ascari's 1955 Monaco car too.  :)

Yes. well spotted.   If you read the story that goes with it you'd see that it was one of my earliest scratch builds and I was struggling with it.   I was just starting out in this hobby and this was too complex a shape for me to tackle at the time.   I'll probably start over rather than try to fix it.

You found me Warren!   I'm having so much fun driving the 55's that I don't want to come back to F2's yet.   Spent all evening on Spa and my favourite Isle of Man ... in the Lancia D50 of course!   Only ever tried 2 other cars but this is my favourite for some reason. :rolleyes:   Will Lopen be trying the 55's any time soon?

Frank
