Bob, Nice little model!

DanR

P.S. the first PIC came out fuzzy on my screen. Might be mine, But it you could delete and re-POST for a better view would be nice. Thanks again for the Scale....

The focal point is off in both photos. It was in the background in the first photo and in the foreground in the second photo. Need photo retakes!

Cool model though.

Instamatics never worked right when they were new.

Pretty remarkable detail for a model that small. The stitching looks almost like real needle-and-thread work. And the engine turning on the steering wheel? Just as if one were standing three feet away from the real thing.

I was about three feet from the wheel. It's amazing how much better the photo is if you don't have to continue to resize in order to post. I bought this wheel in the U.K. a lot of years ago. It's a Les Leston wheel that showed no indication of having been on a car when I installed it on the red Harrington a few years back. I installed a Moto Lita wheel on the red car and this one will go on the white car.

Ken, Either he missed your joke or ignored it! You needed to put a smiley on it

Obviously he meant to post this pic in the RHD LeMans thread.
