To be honest, I remeber that car to be quite different: in the mod it hasn't got the right curves and proportions, from some angles looks like a cheese grater. A bit more time in refining those and we could be speaking of it in whole different terms.
In a way, reminds me of a lazy (as in "without researching for real photos") attempt in trying to convey the "petiteness" of that car. That was everything but little, slightly smaller than the rest, but not in a way more akin to a Morris Cooper.

Well It seems that looks can be deceiving :) As stated before the BT24 is almost a 1:1 replica of the real thing. As for the Ferrari you might have a point, as Kunos has used the 1968 tub for reference and that's the model the modders used as well. On another forum there was a topview of all the cars posted, giving some scale reference... That BT24 isn't that small...

Look at the girth of the Repco and the body, the nose too: way too slim. (Yes, it's not the original blueprint, but Ozpata made it from the original blueprints, so it does count).

Are the models in this picture 1/43 die cast or AC cars worked on?

The cars look like some rework of the GPLEA ones, barred Ferrari (AC Red Pack), Brabham (original), Lotus 33 (Which is a 25 with bigger tires), Matra MS5 (Ripped from RF2).

Hmm, doesn't seem off that much. I have more faith in laserscanning than online 'semi blue prints'

Hmmm, these don't look like GPLEA to me at all:

Watkins Glen 1967 has been released for AC.  Trackout layout comports with track map on the Stats F1 website.  Scenery looks different from GPL but road surface is good.  Anyway another period track for mod in question.   Must say blasting over the crest into Watkins Glen turn 1 in VR (while trying to look smooth turning and braking at the same time) is invigorating.  : o  There's also now an open beta (F1 1500 mod) consisting of the Lotus 25, Ferrari 156 (Sharknose), Cooper T55, Porsche 804, and also the Ferrari 158.  I think this mod is even more fun than the AC GPL67 mod.

Apologies to GPL faithful.  Only good enough reason to play other than GPL is VR.  VR is a biggie for me.  I drive drive better with VR and the immersion is better.  Can't go back to non-VR sim.
