Not to criticise our paddock builds, but the one built for the new movie production look a bit better than ours!!

I can't wait to see this film - it looks incredible. If anyone is a Twitter user then I can heartily recommend following the director @RealRonHoward as he often posts great behind the scenes photos and titbits during filming.

There is an article in this months Motorsport magazine (or is it in Octane?) About one of the firms who made the replicas. They started off with a brief to make the BRM for drive-by shots, then had to add interchangeable bodywork for the March and Ligier along with engineering it for full on standing starts. They were given 3 months!

PS: The Ligier bodywork was a compromise because the BRM wheelbase was a lot shorter, so the giant airbox looked ridiculous. They had to reduce it to make it look more in proportion with the rest of the car. I got the impression that the guys who built it were disappointed with the compromise.
