OM 150 Rolfo & OM 150 N Tigrotto - Scuderia Ferrari

Post by andor88 »

My intention was not to recreate a particular grid of any race, but to make a tribute to the dusk of endurance racing in the top category for Ferrari, from the period of 1970-71, with some spectacular, but eventually failed attempts. In 1970 privateer 312P's were entered alongside 512S's, however, the 512M came a year later. I know they sort of continued with the 312PB, but that never won Le Mans either.

Great set. Tron make some fantastic transporters and this is one I wouldn't mind having myself.

Now if we could just get Looksmart to produce the remaining 512's they announced several years ago.

Just throw in some mechanics and drivers figurines and the display will be perfect!
Great stuff.
