Although I repaired my badly damaged GT40, I thought it was time for a new model. Below is an image or #11. I am also just about finished with a new 69 Camaro which will be mounted on an unused chassis. I still need to fashion an interior and I may need to replace the motor. It was a bit tired but we will see.

Kit is fujumi RS97. Available from hobby plaza Japan for $17.77 plus shipping. Takes 2-3 weeks to get.

Warning: not all Fujimi Ford GT40s are created equal.  Rich's car is the coveted "wide load" version. 

There are several others that have narrower hindquarters.  :good:

James is exactly right. Some time ago I built a Ford France GT40 that was about a quarter of an inch narrower than the Gulf kit so beware! Also, the early GT40s like the one driven by Gurney are also narrow
