HELP!! I just found one in my stash in a baggie. Missing both left side engine parts, the radiator and one blank side wheel half. What was the color for thiscar when it raced? Any numbers etc? What was the track like in 1959? concrete, asphalt, dirt? I plan to build a small diorama with it. Were there one or two men in the seats in a race?

San Sebastian race ( not the 1933 Grand Prix de France - not ready yet ).
There was many race with many pilots : Dreyfus, Nuvollari, Wimille...

What particular car do you intend to build ?
It will be the best solution for me to help you.


( #2 Wimille at San Sebastian, #12 Nuvolari at Spanish Grand Prix, etc...)

Tracks at this time was in concrete.

cheers

I bought a partly painted and assembled original Pyro release a couple of years ago. I bought it for spares but don't need the parts you mention. Shoot me an email.
