Precioso. Y esa especie de aleta de tiburón similar a la de los f1 actuales, le aporta mucho carisma.

Silvo:

En sport-prototipos Jaguar tuvo unos felices años ´50 pero en F-1, Ferrari ganó en 1952, 1953, 1956 y 1958.

El color amarillo corresponde a Bélgica. Como ya sabes, el rojo para los italianos, azul para franceses, gris para alemanes y verde para los ingleses.

Kin:

My favourite car is the Porsche 917.

Carlos:

Es que, como en el fútbol, está casi todo inventado.

Me gusta mucho este coche... en Le Mans es un auténtico mito...

Para hacérmelo en slot es un poco difícil, por la dificultad de conseguir ese complejo parabrisas, que llegaba a cubrir el asiento del copiloto.

Fantástica miniatura. Un saludo.

A wonderful model interdomin! So much more original than another works or Ecurie Ecosse car. Could I know the brand please?

By the way, white was the colour of Germany, not silver as it is often erroneously written.

Álex:

Seguro que algún día alguien lo fabrica.

Lorenzo271:

It´s an Ixo-Altaya.

Sorry, but I thought that grey was the colour of german cars. By the way, I remember some white Porsches 910.

Thanks for the info interdomin. Really, I'm not aware of what has been released lately by Altaya. That's too bad, because once again this model is superb.

On the other hand, I'm sorry to insist, but Germany's colour was white. As the legend has it, Mercedes-Benz removed the white paint of its cars for their first GP during the 1934 season, because they were slightly overweight. Without paint, the cars were light enough to be legal... and an habit had been taken. Anyway there has never been anything mandatory about these colours, nothing else than a tradition, so anything was actually possible.

P.S. I just look if there was a wikipedia page about racing colours. Obviously, there's one (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_international_auto_racing_colors)! There's a special mention about the German cars. The way I understand their two white/silver colour

The way I understand their two tables, white was "official", silver is "alternate" and "historic".

Nonetheless I'm generally suspicious about wikipedia; on the very same page their indications about racing numbers seems quite phoney to me.

Oops! Sorry interdomin, I just noticed that I actually misread your last post (I also noticed there's a major mistyping in my post, sorry). Yes, most people think silver is the German colour, well it actually almost became so by force of habit.
