The width of the car in this drawing is much too narrow. ettore
Yes it looks pretty narrow. Here's another -
And another narrow one - 1939 T57C LeMans winner, from the web.
I used that first plan to make a master in 1/24th scale for that car and it looked terrible. Had to take it to my tablesaw and rip it in half and add quite a bit - at least 1/4" and maybe more down the middle. Never did complete the master as Renaissance produced that model and I got it; and I think it's a little narrow, too; as it doesn't fit the Franklin Mint Atalanta chassis. ettore
That second plan, even looking at half of it, looks correct. Best to take the track, and fit the width of the body to it. ettore
The car is at the Simeone Collection in Philadelphia, PA- if you do a search, you can find some nice pics of it.
