Chris, this is just achingly pretty. You even got Jim Clark's helmet spot on as I remember it from all those years ago. What a terrible, terrible waste his death was: I can still vividly remember hearing about it and feeling that it just was not possible. This is a wonderful tribute to a once in a lifetime gentleman driver.

Well done: thank you.

Ready for the first round of the proxy!!

The original Monogram gearbox/trans. case is rather large to say the least, so I made a smaller version from bits in the parts box......still on the clunky side, but, the rules say you must enclose the crown.

I think it turned out well, and, I am very pleased with its performance.

Cheers
Chris Walker

Chris,

One of my favorite builds yet (in a long line of yours). I'm with Aloha - one of my favorite drivers as well.
