This car was the same chassis (#101.05) that Jan Lammers owned and drove the previous year - the one with the 'football' livery. The 2006 car was modelled by Spark (& Ebbro) and as it seem unlikely Minichamps would produce the car themselves just for a 300 piece run in 2007, I would guess it was made using the Spark casting.

These BAM special releases really annoyed me. Living in Australia, they were impossible to get. I didn't mind missing out on the Dome, but really wanted (still want) the 2004 'Seikel' Porsche 911 GT3 and the 2006 911 GT3. The 2006 car in particular is now worth a lot of money :

Ian, I stand corrected. You are right the T2M Dome was produced by Spark. Just found the box in the loft! I was getting confused with the Minichamps T2M Porsche 911 GT3's.

Thanks for the link on the LM2006 GT3. That is what I call a "bottle neck" model. The success of completing some LM grid's lies entirely with sourcing these rare limited number models quickly. I got wind of this BAM release and made sure I purchased one at the Spark shop at Le Mans in 2007. I wish I had bought more than just 1 now! I assume there are no longer any BAM specials produced these days?

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.

Good heavens it's all on this page as well :o

The lime green 911 Carrera RS is certainly very 1970's. Do you think the ski wear was the same colour?

That could be the perfect group Andy; Ferrari, Ligiers, de Tomasos, Mirages, 911, cool transporters - you'll have to go a long way to top that.

Cars from the 70s Le Mans races and transporters is a paradise! Congratulations!

It doesn't take much to build an epic diorama. Just add a few figurines and a scenario and voilá...
