Hi guys,

Just received this from the States and I'm having trouble identifying what model it's supposed to be. Looks like a Ferrari 246SP, but I thought they were only made as a Spyder and not a Coupé... can one of you Tifosis help me out here?

It's Made in Hong Kong, about 1/43 scale, but no manufacturer indicated. I have a few more like this, with the same chassis, but different bodies, so not really sure who made it either..

Any input welcome!

Looking at the roof. I had the same experience when I left a NSR Supra on the dashboard of my car.

How about, "it's a truly ugly lump of wasted plastic, proving once more that engineers are poor stylists. " ? :)

Whatever it is, it need to be muscled up , and placed on a course of steroids . I was having second looks , trying to figure out the front and rear of the car .....terrible design work .
Surely Don , you're not having that in your collection ? Then again , we all have unusual and individual tastes .....why not ...go for it !

If you squint a bit, the nose and tail are a little bit 'Vetteish. Dunno what's going on in the middle though.

There was a sporty road going version by I think Don Yenko which may well have had a spoiler on the back.
Yes, the Yenko Stinger. It was a very small spoiler, but apparently that's all it needed.

I had some Yenko bits on my Corvair, but they didn't improve its handling any. :(

Well, yes, thanks guys, but the front still looks very Ferrari sharknosish to me, hence the 246, but with a roof! Except for that, true that it roughly resembles a Corvair.

Zig, this is exactly the kind of thing I like to collect, along with the quirky and the inventive scratchbuilds - the odder the better!
