Hello gentlemen

I present a car that may or may not ..







Honestly there are probably more imagination than reality in the piece.



I just found photos (of the Targa Targa if .. LM ... not)



I have relied on some "pictures" of a website about LM where cars are 1/43 and really bad.



But ........ I really enjoyed doing it and if at the end or was not well, or as I fear is unlike almost anything .. because I do not care.

I've been happy looking, guessing, creating and basically is what it is.

Thanks a lot sirs.

Jordi

very nice!!

long ago i had started a scratch project to do some fn targa florios - here is a link to one section of my blog with info on the fn targa

http://www.slotforum.com/forums/blog/manit...ndex.php?cat=43

if you do a search there more may come up

in the 'frazer nash in competition' there are some more recent (1960s?) photos of the '54 le mans car and i know somewhere i have a few color photos of it as well

they may be in the scratchbuilding section of the forum - i will check

regards, Ron

Hello to all my apologies for taking to answer ..

Thank you for your feedback.

Hi Ron, the truth is that your post was really my inspiration, I think it's a superb job.

Is that I decided to embark on the adventure of Targa.

There is a black and white photo in the pits where if you think it is that Frazer .... which makes me especially happy.

Another thing is the color green ..... sure ... but really that green?

BR

HI Jordi - nice to see that picture - this is the one from the le mans book i was referring to



you've inspired me to maybe try and give mine another go - i found my wax castings (errr which have shrunk slightly and twisted ... and the wood master buck luckily!)

regards, Ron
