Mmmm my kind of racing cars – Old F1 (mostly pre-WWII), 50s and later Le Mans, some Can Am, a WRC Lancia Stratos from the 1970s. This is the good stuff and if you look at the full size picture you can read the info tags on Kent’s models. The green one furthest away, #0, white wheels, is my own Mitsubishi "0" (nyuk nyuk nyuk) No such actual markings were ever carried by a WRC car, and many would find it in poor taste, I suppose. But I thought the classic IJN green over IJN light gray, black around the engine, and metallic blue-green inside would be fun. It used to be a mater of faith among the model building community that the interior of Imperial Japanese Navy planes was a transparent blue-green (Malachite green some said) primer/protectant. Turns out not to be true. Some original finishes aged and faded to look like that, but the factory interior paint was a grey green (surprise!), slightly different for Mitsubishi and Nakajima. Different Japanese Navy bases had different "light gray" standards, no surprise the manufacturers differed.
Anyway, my kit is a Heller injection molded plastic kit, Mr. McClure’s work classic cottage industry stuff- white metal or resin body and chassis, white metal, resin or turned aluminum wheels, perhaps some photoetch, vacuformed clear parts. NON trivial stuff. You can tell he’s good.
