1904 Darracq

The Darracq was an Airfix kit produced as part of their vintage motoring line. It dates back to the '50s, and is listed as 1/32 scale like the rest of the cars in that group. But it's actually 1/24 scale or thereabouts, especially when you see it compared with an AMT Model T. The kit was released several times (the first in a clear plastic bag), but then was released by MPC with extra parts to build a "drag" version.

I've been tempted to pick up one of the MPC kits and do the drag version just for fun. Fairly goofy. They did that with a number of those old Airfix antiques. MPC and Airfix had a pretty strong working relationship for a number of years.
