Chaparral 2D Coupe

Chaparral 2D Coupe by Monogram. 440 HP, 1,700lbs and 170mph all from the genius of Jim Hall. If anyone knows where I can find an unbuilt AMT 2E open cockpit version of this racer please let me know. WANT! Remember that beautiful black and white line drawing that took up two pages in Car and Driver that was a Shell advertisement endorsed by Hall? Damn near get misty-eyed thinking about it.

Sauber-Mercedes C9 1989 World Sports

Sauber-Mercedes C9 1989 World Sports–Prototype Championships Racer. Nice detail in the 5 liter 32-valve V8 twin turbo and usual Tamiya quality make this a pleasure to build. Mirrors were painted different colours to allow the individual team cars to be easily identified at speed. Bare-metal foil really helps to detail this model.
