The latest release from Automodello is now available, to accompany the original release Lotus 49.  Although four years from announcement to release, most of the delay was due to Dan's passing in midprocess; Jim Cowin fortunately had Dan autograph the Certificates of Authenticity long before that.  I'd say the color is perfect; Raffi spent quite a bit of time getting the color correct and it shows. Lots of engine detail, removable engine side covers which have photoetched Dzus fasteners,steerable wheels and includes engraved plating display base and cover.  My only change was to add tire sidewall BlueStreak stripes and lettering.

Will this hold you for a while?

Here's both of the Automodello releases; Lotus 49 Dutch GP winner and the Belgium GP Eagle:

Oh and forgot about the 8th scale RAR Eagle  you mentioned

I have several Carousel One Gurney Eagles and they are beautifully executed considering their very reasonable price points, but this is a work of art! Thank you for sharing it with us, AAR :occasion14: :occasion14: :occasion14: :occasion14: !
