This Ferrari is an early version of the ferrari 250 GT and is a little bit longer than the SWB Type. It was entered by the North American Racing Team (N.A.R.T.) for the 1959 Le Mans edition. The pilots were G. Arents and A. Pilette. they finished second of their class and fourth overall.

The car is nicely molded and the general shape seems to be quite accurate.
Assembly is easy, but the glasses have to be cut in several parts for a better adjustment.

As usual, I fitted it with a Cartrix wheelbase, BRM wheels and Ninco gear mesh and guide.

The body was painted with 2/3 Mr Hobby H4 gloss yellow and 1/3 H 34 cream yellow, as the yellow colour applied on the real car was slightly different from the yellow one used for the Ferrari badges on the front wings and rear bonnet (It's clearly visible on the genuine colour pict).

The front lights have been drilled and painted in yellow in order to depict the bulbs. I'll try to make it better next time.

Two black stripes made with decal were applied under the night lights. They represent home made holes in the body ,as the LWB real # 19 car had no air intakes as seen on the SWB's.

No weathering shades applied on that car, but I gave my attention to the interior. Front and rear sits were painted in various tones of brown and tan, giving a worn leather effect. I know: A Ferrari should be well maintained but I do like the effect obtained (and it's mine after all...)
