Ok at some point I might have to say I like most Porsches but may be it's just turning in to a Gp C thing 😁

Anyway this arrived to day...

Motor runs and all the light work, I've removed the magnet but not tried it on track yet as it's a tad cold in the shed at the moment.

No, Quark, I really don't know the answer. Never been able to make up my mind. I don't usually like shiny things, but possibly make a subconscious effort to like representations of anything from Weissach and Zuffenhausen.

OK - Chrome would be, in my unprofessional opinion silly. Since it isn't a representation of anything existing in the real world. note: a DeLorean (sp?) isn't/wasn't chrome. It was Stainless Steel. A Model Car is by definition a model which means to me a representation of something existing.

my opinion. Worth exactly nothing.

Ah but these are slot cars and as we know slot cars don't always represent a real thing or we won't have any fantasy liveries or even a real car or there wouldn't be a lot of thingies. Just think of them as a nice centre piece for the collectors.

A rare Porsche built in 1957 by Henk van Zalinge. Known as the Hirondelle, it was front-engined and made largely from 356 Carrera bits. Extensively raced in the Netherlands into the 1960s by luminaries like Gijs van Lennep, I don't know it it still exists.

Read on another forum some 7 Hirondelles were built, and most survived. Can't say where they are, though.
They were raced by the builder and Rob Slotemaker amongst others. Mostly in NL.
