An alternative to the 1955 Mercedes for this weekends race is this Porsche 908/2 Flunder Kurz in Martini livery from the 1970 Targa Florio. 
 
The Body is my own grp. model, which is based on the LeMans Miniatures Langheck with much modifies rear end. I think this looks much more than the original than other similar bodies I have seen before.
 
The chassis is the same Werks DSC I chassis, which I used with a similar Langheck body at our National Classic Championship last year. Rear tyres are Ortmann PU tyres dæk.
 
Interior, decals, wheel inserts etc are my own production.

We would expect nothing less from you.

 

LOL

 

Fantastic work as usual, Niels; I love looking at your work!

The only thing bad about Retro is admitting that you remember doing it originally.
