Do you build models? Check out the GP Models site below for kits, they also have built kits which are really expensive, just fill in the appropriate boxes. http://www.grandprixmodels.com/shop/shop.asp
I have a 1/12th Models Plus kit of Phil Hill's car that I have not yet started, plus several versions in 1/43ed diecast - also a 1/20th Revival kit that is finished.
I think "stewil" hit it on the spot. The closest thing to 1:18 ever released would be the Revival brand. I have not seen it on E-Bay for some time however you can ocassionally find it there, price ranging depending on condition and assembly.
It is a kit in metal. The body parts come pre-painted. Usually, their Revival whire wheels look fantastic. Much of the chassis and engine are in unpainted white metal and require quite a bit of cleaning and paint to look authentic. Overall, the detail is very nice if you have the patience and skill to build it correctly. Revival kits come from Italy and are not often seen in the USA.
Hey guys, thanks a million for the effort you put in on an obscure question asked by a newby. If this response is indicitive of the membership, I am most appreciative and honored to be a member! However these models are quite expensive and not readily available. The reason I asked was I'm going to have the chance to meet Phil Hill at the 50th anniversery of Road America at the historic race in July and I was hoping to get his autograph on an appropriate model. Any suggestions?
