I’d love to see one in person for scale - looks big until you see somebody in the cockpit.

...she wasn't supermodel-tall... the D-type is pretty petite.

That is truly beautiful, Bill, and inspirational!

These days, though the internet is a fabulous resource, you can probably get away with one book (for the model at least, history is another matter...):

Came out last year: I bought mine for £6 in a "remaindered" book shop in the Autumn...

Oooooh! I gotta grab that book! That would also come in handy for the "street" XKSS! B)

Stunning model Mr. Geary, and always inspiring every time I see it...:D

But he didn't scuff the tire tread!  Just kidding - it is a gorgeous model.

I think that Fisher make a resin kerbside kit of the D Type in 24th scale. Got a feeling that they make a Briggs Cunningham Special in same scale. I had the Lindberg one some time ago, and agree it is not much more than a slot car shell. Can see why cross kitting with the Revell C type looks feasable to kitbash. The D Type is such an iconic Le Mans racer that I am surprised that it has not been kitted with full engine detail by one of the mainstream kit manufacturers.

I forgot to mention that Merit in the UK did a kerbside D Type way back in the 1960's. Sometimes they come up on EBay.
