I have had these 2 1/43rd GTV models in my cabinet for over 10 years, does anyone know if these are actual cars that raced or just fantasy ???
They are approximately actual cars.
The yellow one is a Gr. A track car prepared by Luigi Cimarosti (30 km away from here!) for the European championships 1983 and 1984. The three drivers indicate the race as 24h of Francorchamps (only race with teams of 3), but actually that team never raced with #46. Unless one of my assumption is wrong, I thnk drivers and race number have been mixed up. EDIT: that drivers team (Georges Cremer, Giorgio Francia, Marco Micangeli) shared a GTV6 for the 1982
Spa 24h, but with race number 43, finishing 11th, according to this reliable site
, which contradicts the drivers list given in the other one quoted below.
The Marlboro car is a 1983 French production championship car, actually the winner of that championship. #6 seems to fit, as I did mself the #5 for the other pilot, Cudini.
On both versions, you find alot of information here
, some of which I provided myself.
May I ask which make they are? I'm not sure to recognize the models, as I thought the JLC Gravure/Graphiland was the only kit of the Production version, and at least the wheels are different.
