Aston Martin 1:1 scale model kit

Here we have every young model maker's dream - a full size replica of the Aston Martin DBR1 that carried Carroll Shelby and Roy Salvadori to victory in the 1959 Le Mans race, made into a giant Airfix-type model kit, with the bits on a parts tree.

But there was no Humbrol model enamel used here - the seats are genuine leather upholstered, the tyres genuine Dunlop and the gear knob and lever are machined alluminium.

It was made by Aston Martin replica makers the Evanta Motor Company and  this is the only one in existence. It it will be auctioned at the Goodwood Revival weekend.
