1973 Le Mans Ferrari Diorama

Post by Jager » Tue Jan 30, 2018 12:28 am

While researching the 1973 Ferrari 312PB I posted recently, I came across this interesting paddock photo taken before the Le Mans 24 Hours.

Since I also had the OM Ferrari transporter, a second 312PB and a caravan, here's my quick attempt at a reconstruction in 1:43 :

I don’t know whether to applaud you or crumble in a fit of jealousy Ian :lol: :mrgreen: :lol:

Wonderful piece of art!

Very good Ian. Most realistic

British roads have history. Some were built by the Romans. British road investment being what it is, they have only been re-surfaced a few times since.

Awesome! That's why I like this hobby so much - you can recreate the reality on your desk/shelf in a small size!

Nice one Ian on both counts. Love the LM73 pic (have not seen that one before) and of course your diorama. Love this sort of thing right up my street.

Thanks guys, it was just a bit of fun to occupy 10-15 minutes. Glad you liked it.

That does not resemble a 'quick' attempt Ian - very impressive down to the white caravan to the right rear. I just love diroamas, something I too would dabble in with more time ;) BB
