Well, I finally received that package coming from Australia, full of Pattos decals.


One of the decal sheet is dedicated to Ferrari GTOs, and fact is some of my almost finished projects are 3 GTOs: 2 1962(?) version, by Revell and Pink Car, plus a MRRC GTO/64 without decals.

Now, this is the Pattos sheet for GTOs:
(by the way, it is a good value for money: you may decorate many cars with this single sheet.)


I'd like some suggestions for the racing numbers of my 3 GTOs, (considering I made yet the 2 Monogram/MRRC GTO/64 #26 and #30), of course numbers related to a famous race; I prefere plain red Ferraris like official entries; I like too NART and Filipinetti liveries, but they are second choices unless they won an important race...
I'm sure Russell has the complete list of racing numbers for every GTOs on the planet!

I know someone who will know: 250GTO! (wow, I rhyme)

Seriously, give him a PM or email, but he'll probably see this post within the week anyway. He's a serious Ferrari nut, in fact he's just a car nut. And he knows pretty much everything...

To say - 'well done' to russell is an understatement. Because he is spoiling us with his almost intimidatingly well informed responses. Does the man have an army of librarians working fulltime as his personal assistants or what???


Anyway - it might be very obvious - but I wonder what does 'RHD' mean?

- sorry if this is a stupid question...

Peter,

I have come to understand that the only stupid question there is, is the one you don't ask...


oh, by the way, RHD means Right Hand Drive

Woh! Too much!
Thank a lot to Russell for the infos... and thanks to Peter for asking the "stupid question" in my place!


by the way, I remember the old thread about Revel and Pink Car, I have to say that thanks to that thread I realized my Pink Car was not so ugly, it just needed new decals!

Back to my choice, I'm in trouble: too many options...

The #7 could be a good one, but Russel is right: car #7 was not a 250 GTO but a 330 GT entered at Le Mans 1962

(The body looks just the same, anyway.)

Another good one could be #22, again at Le Mans 1962

For the GTO/64 I could choose #24 or #27, Le Mans 1964...

More suggestions?

Well, while I'm here, I'm wondering if the original livery of my Pink Car, #106 team Waltham, is a fantasy one or it was used in some race; maybe Targa Florio?

Thanks again and

Ciao
Otello

Otello, that's a great website! The list I gave is by no means exhaustive; I just listed those races in which GTOs did particularly well.

With kind regards

Russell, you've been more than helpful, as usual.

The problem now is I have too many options; maybe I have to get 10 or 20 more GTOs?
Well, why not?


Ciao

P.S. Glad you like the Ferrari model club site.
