Found this curious body, don't know if it's F1 or Indy or who made it!

 

Any guesses?

 

Thanks!

I would agree, BRM. I'm a little puzzled on the model. It has the windscreen air scoop like a P-56, but I haven't

seen any of those with head fairings, like the P-48.

It is indeed a Strombecker body, have the same boxed body kit and all i can find written on the box and instructions is " British BRM formula1"!

Looks like a 1962 car, the photo on the box shows Graham Hill driving a #4 car.

After building the body kit up, I researched the car, a BRM P57 and despite the photo on the box showing #4 , the kit came with original decals of the #12 .  I found that the car was the one that Richie Ginther drove at the Italian GP and also the German GP in 1962. BRM won the constructors title, and Graham Hill won the World Championship.
