Ferrari 250TR Paul Frere and Olivier Gendebien Le Mans 1960. Winner having covered 314 laps. 3.0Ltr V12.
Like Peter (Sorry), I received this shell from John Warren a couple of months ago. I intended to start it at the end of the year. However, I couldn't wait.
To date I have removed resin from the intakes, fitted mounting post (Ride height sorted). It has a PCS32 chassis, with an NSR shark 22 motor and Slot.it running gear. I have also fitted the interior and filled in the dash and small gaps around the insert (still to smooth out). I'm considering cutting out and replacing the side vent/grills, but as yet undecided.
Photobucket is being very troublesome as usual, so I cannot post as many pictures as I would like.

Brian, glad to see another TR on the bench, it seems to be coming along pretty well. I have many cars of the period on the go so will probably ease up on my own build and leave this particular stage to you for the present.
Don't apologise for the lack of images. 'Picture heavy' threads do sometimes cause problems with those with limited Broadband, and what you have provided to date is fine.
The Astons and 250 SWB have been cleaned up. Next to fill a few air holes, then primer. I will open separate posts for these cars as I progress.
Well I've thought long and hard about the side vents on the TR250. I was going to cut them out and make inserts. I've decided to attempt to thin out them. They need a little more tidying, but so far so good.
