Thanks Roger - at least it appears that this model is kosher.

Has anybody seen a model of the cycle winged Ferrari 166 spyder he drove in 1948?

Aaaaargh! (Again)  After following the link to the restored New York to Paris Thomas Flyer on the main forum I find that my Rio model is white with black lettering and brown seats when it should be grey with red lettering and red seats.  And there should be toolboxes and things on the running boards, etc etc.  It's taken me four years to find that out so i reckon I'll live with it.  As the Peking-Paris Itala is in the Turin Museum, I'm going to hope that Rio had a close look at it and got it that one right.
