I'm a bit confused. You need photos? References? Proof of existence?

You know why Italians speak with their hands? Because they have to work a lot on their engines.

If you haven't already done so, check the Grand Prix Models website. Search by year, then select the box for 1/43 and "Le Mans".

I didn't find anything from 1949 - 1954, but did find this reference to a planned future release of the 1956 #50 Monopole X88 from Renaissance. No picture yet, but I guess you can always book mark the page and check back later, or email Renaissance and see if they have any photos :

The 1980 #22 TOJ SM01 is (or was) on Spark's list of future models :

That's it I think.

I have contacted Barry Smith at BTS Mouldings in the UK about these obscure Le Mans models. Barry has a huge Le Mans Collections and makes small runs of some of the more obscure models for Le Mans collectors around the world

Below is what he has in stock from your list. Stock changes all of the time so some might have gone and no more will be made. Others he has listed as IXO, SMTS etc..

You can contact him (or in fact anyone wanting any of the list) direct on barryts1066@gmail.com

Thanks for the info Chris. I bought a lot of models from Barry in the past, but I thought Paul indicated he had wound up the business and retired. Nice to know he's still around....might be worth asking for an updated stock list.

He has closed down BTS as a business, but still has loads of stuff to sell and still makes a lot of these obscure models for his own Le Mans collection and for anyone else who wants them.

The only lists you are likely to get are of his own range.

But email Barry to find out more

Hi Jager,

Thanks for your survay.
Lots of BTS Mouldings models are listed on LM24DATABASE, but just the ones Barry or some BTS dealers post it on the web.

The point is to get pictures of the missing models eventually Barry has and didn't published.
I'll send him a mail to check that.

Thanks again.

Rui Sousa.

There are no BTS dealers, BTS is just Barry & his wife Jo.

He has a database of photos of every Le Mans model or of the real car.

He is only missing around 20 himself
