Hi, I'm new here. I built this small diorama from a 1/43 scale Provence Moulage metal kit, some balsa, some heavy duty aluminum foil (armco), H-channel Plastruct girders (fence posts) and a little model railroad grass. Hope you enjoy.

Nice little dio. Why is the car being pushed? Did it run out of fuel?

Thanks Jim B, nice meet you! The scene is fictitious. In 1985 Jaguar teamed up with British constructor Tom Walkinshaw to develop a V-12 car to contest the Group C World Championship. The XJR-6 was the result. I chose to model what was probably a common scene in the birth of any race car.

Very nice. Sometimes simple is best.
