And when it comes to celebrated motorsport models, ModelSpace really comes up trumps. Now you can build your own replica of the legendary Ford GT40. This superbly detailed die-cast metal and injection-moulded plastic model is a 1:8 scale replica of the iconic four-time winner of Le Mans. The car even sports the classic Gulf Racing colours of light blue and orange – the same as when it was driven to an epic victory at Le Mans by Jacky Ickx and Jackie Oliver in 1969.
You’ll find exquisite detail on every part of the model. The bodywork opens up to reveal the later 4.9-litre Ford V8, fitted with Gurney-Weslake overhead-valve cylinder heads. Similarly, in the cockpit you’ll find the gearstick on the right and a pull-on handbrake fitted under the dash. The wheels turn and steer, with rims made from die-cast metal and real rubber Firestone racing tyres.Advertisement - Page continues below
