    With a bit of imagination you can see an F1 car here. :)

    I wanted to do some work now that I have some free time but all my files are on my laptop, which is in another country. Stupid me :) So instead of wasting time I started modelling the BRM v8 engine for when I'm going to to the M4B version. It's pretty much done except from some details. Here's a pic to give you an idea of how it looks.

    Guy Ligier

    Many may know Guy Ligier as the owner of the F1 team bearing his own name. Before that, in the 1960's he was a driver too. For 1968, together with his friend Jo Schlesser, they contested the European F2 Championship with a pair of McLaren M4a's. That was, until Jo's tragic accident at the 1968 French GP in the Honda. Ligier retired from active driving at the end of that season. When he started building cars he named them after Schlesser (JS) in memory of his friend. Now, at the age of 85 Guy Ligier has left us. May he rest in peace.

    Yeah, still learning every day. Must be the reason I'm so slow.

    Well your modelling is extremely good. Just shows what can be achieved by learning yourself. :)
