Al, I too would rather see Tyrrell blue, and would have thought that it would be the logical choice for a model of this car - really, the only
choice. I too am disappointed if this is the choice of livery for the model.
If I get my hands on one, it will end up blue.
On the other hand, we can't ignore the fact that the tobacco industry has, in fact, driven the development of motorsport more than any other industry, over the years since sponsorship first appeared. Like it or not, that is history. Let's not try to rewrite history in our modelling if we don't personally sanction smoking. To do so would be "Macarthy-esque", and we would miss some great models and liveries, in my opinion... in fact, perhaps MOST models and liveries!
Besides, owning one of these will not make you start puffing...
