Vive Les Bleus!…1/24 Talbot Lago T26C

#18/2020

And now for something completely different…
Being usually an aircraft builder and doing from time to time some armour, this is my dad´s first car model since 30 years.
The last one he built was this same Heller kit, now he gave it a new try.

Built oob without any scratchbuilding or improving. The kit is not that bad, but some parts were warped, that´s why it doesn´t stand on all four. Had to cut away some parts of the engine to make other parts fit, therefore the hood is closed. Painted with an altered Tamiya Sky Blue.

A pity there aren´t any modern kits of these classic race cars from the 30ies and 50ies.

  6. Great looking car, and I completely agree. We need more affordable examples of these types of cars.
