My favorite C-1 [PIC]
This was a real ego booster. I had kitbashed an FM '53 with a Revell plastic model, updating it to a '54 and used Model Garage PE parts and Revell's decal sheet to model von Esser's Pan American race car. When I posted pics of it here, DM asked me to send the model to them and they ultimately produced this variant. The research was fun. I even got to talk with von Esser's niece who had some great stories of the different celebs that were in and out of his garage.
