Dave's Race Car Collection
« on: December 15, 2012, 09:17:36 AM »
A few months back I was contacted by a fellow named Mark
about doing a paper model of a rare BMW Race Car.

The car in question is the 1974/75 BMW Alpina 2002
I've attached a couple of montage pics showing the 74 white version
and the 1975 black version with the more common Alpina striping package.





So, its seems Mike owns this car and is in the process of restoring it
to its former glory. He has a website dedicated to this Car and the project.
And he got the idea to create a paper model of the car and sell it on his
site, to his fans.  Thats where he contacted me.

Initially the request was for the white BMW (Alpina sponsored) 1974 version,
and that was the original model I created for him.










But after we discussed producing a second version, he has since decided
he will be restoring the car to the distinctive black Alpina paint scheme.
And he asked if I could also produce that version...which I have.




In one of the reference photos I received, a Print Ad by Alpina showed the '75 car
parked with another Race Car...the '75 3.0CSL
Its a very similar styled race car, and so I decided to make a few alterations and
create a third version from my template.





I have discussed the arrangement with my customer Mike.
Hes not ready to release the models on his site yet.
And I will be making up special covers and packages for him to distribute to his fans and colleagues.

In the meantime we have agreed that I will be adding these models to my shop
and so I will be doing that shortly.

There will be three 1/24 scale kits available (as I have discussed here)
...but hopefully this is the start of a larger collection of Race Car models.

Just making a few tweaks to the 3.0CSL now,
but all the models should be available real soon...

with the 1974 Alpina 2002 first up!
Should be available at ecardmodels this week.

However all three kits are available on CD order right now.

....

Already started work on the next Race Car...
my favorite Group B Rally Car, the uber-powerful 1984 S1 Quattro Sport!

Lots of other projects keeping me busy, but every now and then
I put in a little work on the next Race Car model...the Audi S1

I'm a big Audi fan
I owned a GT Coupe back in the late 80s.
(The GT Coupe is the basic car underneath the S1
...although the S1 is based on the Quattro, 4 wheel drive version)

Anyway, I have started work on the basic template...sorting out all the shapes
and dimensions...and then I can start building a substructure in paper.



...........
Funny thing, I just came across this interesting little video story
about a guy who does amazing things with Slot Car tracks.
And theres a related them here.
Check it out.

Seems YMjr Design already makes a nice 1/24 Audi S1 model!
Actually, they have 2 versions...and a Pike's Peak Hillclimb racecar.
Not much point in wasting a lot of time producing something thats already out there.

I have other projects.
Moving on...

Follow up to this thread...

about a year ago, I added a fourth BMW race car model to my set by special request.
Hans Stuck's '74 3.0csl

Basically the same 3.0csl as earlier released but with a different aero package.
New front air dam, new rear wing, and other details.
The paint scheme slightly different aswell.

A well known photograph of this car airborne over a crest was the inspiration for this request.

All my BMW kits can be purchased through ecardmodels,
or I sell a package at a discounted price, of all the car models.
