Flemming "Maleren" Rasmussen was one of the top GT drivers in Denmark in the 60's and early 70's. He was an auto painter by trade, hence his nickname "Malren" which means "the painter" in Danish.
He was well known for his always top prepared and good-looking cars and races Ford Cortinas, Escorts and Alfa Romeo GTA.
Below is a picture of his car at Djursland Grand Prix in 1969 along with the decal sheet I made for the car.

The chassis is a German DMT-APR, which I got from Andys Modellbau. It is taylor made to your wishes and costs €60 incl. carbon parts. Delivery time is approx. 1 week. The quality is good compared to the price even I I find the alu material for the axle mounts a bith weak. 
 
When tested the car ran superb of of the box and the adjustment was minimizing the body movement on the chassis.

Body, vacformed and resin parts as well as decals are from my own production.

Nate, they are  :)

 

They are handling much better than expected and when they leave the track its often undramatically due to the relatively low speed in the curves.

 

These cars have to be driven around, so they ar both challenging and fun to drive. They also looks very good on the track  :sun_bespectacled:
