As I'm waiting for decals to finish the work on an Aston Martin DB 2/4, I had previoulsly begun, I'm
starting this new project.

Aston Martin entered two works coupés for the Le Mans 1954 édition. Due to instability problems, both crashed (Lap 65 and 138) and retired.
The body is sold prepainted, so no major difficulties are awaited. I chose to represent # 20, driven by Collins and Bira.
The weak spot with this kit could be the radiator grill, molded with the body. A photo-etched part, as shown on Zagato's model should be more accurate.

Pilot is nearly finished. I just need to put down two tiny drops of "Cristal Clear" in the silver frames to represent the glasses...

Very nice Happy! The driver is looking realistic but his eyes are particularly well executed.

Lovely ...you have taught me something here.

It's finished now and ready to « race »...

Before trying it, I was saying to myself: It will be a real nightmare on the track, as it is a rather narrow and long car...I was wrong: Due to it's over sized BRM rear wheels and tyres, It's a relatively easy car to handle.
Straight R2 Scaley curves may be approached with confidence if you keep a reasonable speed.
Anyway, with it's weak Cartrix TX1 motor, there's no much danger to exceed the speed limits...

I found it easier to "drive" than the Ferraris 250 I recently built.
