Stirling Moss in Rob Walker's Lotus 18, Monaco 1961
This was an historic victory for the team and driver over the more powerful
Ferraris. The side panels were removed which gave a unique view of the driver's
legs. I made a base for it to represent the entry to the old Station hairpin.

models I've made using the figures
Making figures as a business
meant a lot less time for my own hobby of kit building,
so the models were few and far between.
There is one on this page that I did solely for my own pleasure though . .

Fangio in a Lancia-Ferrari at Monaco
This is the only driver figure I made purely as a one-off [apart from using
the head from RP2]. It was never cast or released, I just painted the original
figure. The car was the first Renaissance model, and a car that raced when
I was 15. I've loved it ever since, so I couldn't resist making a special
figure and another Station hairpin base for it.
