    With due respect to Roger Taylor, his T280 drawing in the April 1972 issue of Model Cars Magazine was rather inaccurate. The 2 page column Prototype Parade No. 334 can be found on VSRN - Online
    page 164 and page 165.

    Working from the many photos of this racer on the 'net, and knowing dimensions like the track, wheelbase, and rim sizes; I used a method of scaling the pictures so that 1 CM (of a known dimension) = 1 pixel and then taking the unknown dimensions with Gimp's measurment tool. I preferred long telephoto head or side-on shots.

    I drew it with xfig. Enjoy!
