I assembled a Revell plastic model kit of the French Talbot- Lago Grand Prix car when I was 10. It was an accurate kit which I painted in the correct French racing blue colour  It even had engine detailing . Because of this the Talbot- Lago has always been one of my favourite 50's era Grand Prix cars . It is so solid and bristles character and mechanical as opposed to aeronautical engineering. Love those Webers ,the matte black camcovers those narrow tyres and the enormous alloy drum brakes.A Canon G9 photo.
