  1. Hi TVTA, fantastic haul of Ferraris (and the other marques!). I still think seeing a Ferrari in yellow but I guess that was the international racing authority’s colour selection for Italy.
    I’m not sure but I think the 1932 Bentley (r114) was also an Airfix model – I think I saw it in the 1983 catalogue that you showcased recently.

    • Thank you! If I had to choose one I’d very nearly go for your choice… the Jag D Type – stylish and cool! But the Ferrai Testa Rossa just shades it for me! Hmm, a very similar shape and styling to the Jag D Types I think you’ll agree, so we’re on the same ‘curve’ length there 🙂

  2. Ah, I was never really into watching racing, but I love those old style race cars… and the Ferrari Testa Rossa, Mercedes W125, and Alpha Romeo 2300 are my favourites.
