I received my white Bburago 250 TR today, and discovered that it's in need of a little more repair than I had anticipated. From 20 feet away, it's fine, but there are a few things that need touching up, thus I'm going to gut the whole thing and start from scratch. A shame, really, as I was looking forward to just tossing the white TR on the shelf and admiring it. So now, I'll get out some old photos and books and try and find a suitable racer to model this puppy after. It can join the 348 and F2001 as the 2 other works in progress.

Tifosi, I'm currently working on Bburago's kit of the '59 #19 250TR. I'm still in the planning phase, doing some paint tests, and I have found some pics of the car. If you want, I can share these pics with you.

Sure, that would be great!

:lol :lol :lol I just took the car apart, and now I won't feel as bad repainting what I thought was an "original" white BBurago. (Either that, of this is one funny car, which could very well be the case.) I took it apart, went through the process of removing all of the plastic from the metal body. When i went to remove the tail lights, I noticed a big glab stuck in the rear fender. It was a ROCK. Painted white, right along with the rest of the car. The paint job seems like a typical BBurago, normal overspary/underpainted in the usual areas, and where I removed the rock from, it's completely bare metal. So I guess this really could be the original color.

Well, after some quick digging, I just discovered the origins of this car. It was originally a Testors metal kit (which would explain the lack of any decals on any part of the car). It was indeed sold as a white model, although it was considered "unpainted". So it looks like the rock in the rear fender was indeed accidental original equipment for my model. Cool.
