Unusual GT40 I need more pictures...

I saw this car over here last autumn. I really like this specific livery and I would like someone to make decals for it (Iceman, hint hint
), but in order to make them I think we'll need a few more pictures of it. I've been searching a lot but I've come up with nada! Well I did manage to find its chassis number: 1079
. The car only managed 1 hour of racing (before crashing) but the at least it looked good doing it, the race was LeMans in 1968 and the drivers were Mairesse and Beurley.

(Picture from I hope they don't mind me posting it here.

Looks good doesn't it? It would be ideal for one of those white Scalextric GT40's...

Thanks for your interest guys!
I hope that you can find some pics in those books of yours Swiss!
And Mini, through my search I've found that too, but it seems it had a slightly different livery in at Spa at least, but I'm not sure I just found one picture of a model made of the car that raced at Spa and it looked a bit different. So really any help needed.
Thank you very much for gathering all that information Swiss! Very intersting indeed, altough a very tragic story too
. Poor Willy Mairesse! It almost makes me not want to build the car, with respect to him and in order to not remind people of his misfortune. But then again I guess most classic race cars have some sad story attached to them. So Maybe I'll go ahead anyway. But I clearly see why the Fly or Scalextric has done a version of this car.
Well I might search for pictures from the Monza race entry then and see what that brings us...

Hmm, this won't be easy...

Good luck anthony! It seems you might need it
And about posting pictures, have a look in the resources section of the site, and look up on the left. There's a great how to by Tropi.
