His model was a beautiful Spark rendition of a Renault Alpine A442: mine is a much more pedestrian Solido, well-used, that I picked up on eBay for the princely sum of $7.54 - shipped!


First attempt at zoom-focus: not as easy as I thought it would be!

It’s got a few chips and scratches - what I prefer to call race damage - probably from a child re-enacting that stunning 1978 Le Mans victory!

That front clip has seen better days.


A crowd gathers around the winner.
