Thanks - much appreciated  :blush: . About two thirds are on display in a 4-tier case, which I will try and do justice of with a photo. The other third (mainly the test variants) are living in a drawer at the moment in individual cases .... persuasion continues.


In the meantime, here's another one I chanced on having been previously unaware. In October 1970, Lauda attended the launch of the new Formula Super Vee Kaimann at Aspern, and had a brief demo run in the car for his old team....






I'm a bit embarrassed with some of the images, since as the photos are larger than the models, they show up all the deficiencies in stark close up !

A great collection Jon. Could I send you a PM with details of a couple of events/tests Lauda attended which you may be interested in?

Yes please - that would be great! Always interested in ones I didn't know about....

There are a couple of additions I've made since the last image uploads which I need to get around to posting, and also a couple of corrections yet to be made (notably the Ferrari 312T2 used in 1976 Swedish GP practice and the 1973 end-of-season trophy Capri) that I need to rebuild. Not sure I will ever fully compete this project.....

Thanks for that - have just put in my order yesterday. Needs a bit of detail (and decal) work, but a nice shape to work with.


It means that I will probably now re-work my own Kaimann Mk 4 scratch build into either the Goffinet Austro he tested at Zolder in 1969 or the Marko MAHAG-Olympic he tried in practice at the Norising in 1970. It'll give me something to do, I suppose  :drunk:
