I'll give a race car a go. I'll be doing Piero Drogo's car (26) from the 1958 Buenos Aires 1000km race.

Wow Dave, you are really cracking on with several different kits at the mo. Don't ever remember seeing a white Red Head.

LOL. I found a pic of a white one with twin blue stripes but it wouldn't upload for me and I couldn't cancel the post.

I'll call you with Dot Cotton from Eastenders !

I saw the B&W photos. Curious about the stripe - were those German colors of Black/Red/Gold?

Seen the stripes on a Ferrari but not sure if it was a 250, will take a look.

Beautiful paint! Glossy white has always been my Achilles Heel, I am in awe (and a bit envious) of how well it turned out.
