Seeing the interest that has been roused by the mention of the 1960 Vanwall, it got me wondering how many people have in their collection, a car that MAY be the only slot racing model of that car anywhere around?

From my own collection I would like to offer these three:







O.K, I know, there are two of the OSCAs....

I have the details of the rarely seen Smith-Climax too but haven't got around to that one yet!

Anybody else?

The darker blue car is very unique, and I don't have a clue as to what it is, but it's cool! smile.gif

Hi Barry
Good stuff
I think the dark blue one is the Fry Climax F2 from about 1957
Is the light blue one the Behra porsche F2 car from the same period
Do you have a lotus 12 in your collection

Good thread!
Lovely cars Barry.
I have these two...



Ford Anglia from a Premiers 1/24 kit, and an Austin A50 from an old Mettoy toy. The Austin is in the process of getting a new chassis.
Cheers,
Tom

Yes, correct regarding the Fry and the Behra Porsche.

I carved the buck of the Fry from about three photos whereas the Behra car was scaled up from a 43rd scale kit I bought some years ago.
