Le Mans

Today is an important day in motor sports - 90th anniversary of Le Mans 24 hours. Coincidentally, it's also Marty's shop's 20th anniversary. I went down to his store, the usual gang of military modelers were there, and Mary prepared snacks for everyone.

Lot's of stuff are on sale, but I wasn't planning to buy anything. Unfortunately, Marty all of a sudden took out a bottle of champagne. After a glass of bubbly, I felt obligated to buy something. I went up to the 1/43 selves and saw this Renaissance kit of 1997 Gulf Racing McLaren GTR-LM. The number 41 car took 2nd overall and 1st in GT1 class. A perfect kit for the day.


  1. Nice to see you got into the spirit of the event....or just a smart HS
    Nice pick up.

  2. Smart owner for sure. My only problem is that Renaissance did not provide the tobacco decals (the Davidoff markings). Now I have to look for them.
