hi
although they were raced by the sunbeam talbot darracq combine those 1.5 litre cars were always referred to a talbots ,although i do beleive dave sykes does some earlier model sunbeams
additionally i believe at one stage marlon foakes was going to do the sunbeam tiger 4 litre car and the 1924 2 litre car not sure how far he got with those

cheers tony

Hi Eric
I believe that as the STD combine was an anglo french organisation whenm the cars were run in france they were painted blue and when raced in britain they were painted green ,and it seems likely that the green was darker than the one you chose for your model ie BRG (not meant to be a criticism )
Thw cars were later sold to an italian team who raced them in dark red ,and had considerably more success than the works team

Cheers tony
