Ferrari 512S decal choice question?

Post by alesi27 »

I have an old Protar issue of this kit but with no decals. I'd like to do a Le Mans car out of it but from what I can see this can't be done out of the box. At least not for a factory entry or any from 1971.
As it will probably only ever be seen by me I'm willing to compromise a bit on accuracy and try to get an approximate representation of a 70 or preferably a 71 LM entrant. Can you recommend some decal sheet with a
scheme that would be close to a LM entry?

I also gather this is not a shake n bake kit, but was a gift and so will be built. Besides, i was raised on Matchbox...

Thanks. Looking a bit more on racingsportscars.com and general googling, looks like the no 16 Scuderia Filippinetti car from 1970 is closest, apart from the real car having a window on the rear deck where the kit has slots. There are at least 2 sets of decals available for that car so looks like that's where I'm going..

Other options seem to be the #9 car in yellow, and the #10 car in red with a golden stripe. Both from 1970.
