I doubt that will be an easy one to find. The founder of BBP left the hobby some years ago in disgust over his work being stolen by other makers.

Hi.

Thank you for these inputs

I continue to be interested if someone can source 1 of this rare item
Not specially for the parts themselves because Hasegawa and Revell have released some kits of such a sprint version which include the parts delivered by BBP
But yes, for the decoration set

Thank you
Bye

I wasn't sure if you were willing to buy a while kit just for the decals but I spotted this if it helps

Not exactly I think. Those are SAT decals but not the same ones as on the version in the original post...so unfortunately not really helping.

If that transkit is unobtainium you could use the Hasegawa AEG kit as a starting point ( sprint version as opposed to the Tamiya kit which is really a redecorated 89 LM car ) and get the SAT decals and Supercup numberdecals printed by Spotmodel or someone else. Or maybe, since they are all on white background ( so no white lettering ), even print them yourself.

It’s when searching some photos of the model you recommend that I’ve found the BBP conversion kit
But not exaltly the same décoration

Can you post a link to where you found the picture of the transkit? Are you certain that it was actually produced? The reason I ask is that the founder of BBP was known to have a second kit that was very close to production that was never actually released. I'm wondering if this transkit may be that unreleased kit.

unfortunately , yes !

Yes , that’s also my idea in the last possibility
The necessary logos are not so difficult to be selfprinted ....
