DP214 heading for Canada

Here's a shot of another 214. This one is being built up for a customer in Canada. As most will know i'm pretty fussy about my models and if I see something i'm not happy with, i'll do my best to improve it where I can. In this instance, the offending parts were the transparent lamp covers. I was never totally happy with the originals, so I redesigned them with the result being a huge improvement.
The customers request was for the car that beat the Ferraris at Monza in 1963. This was a support race for that years Italian Grand Prix and being driven by Roy Salvadori, I don't suppose the Tifosi were very pleased. This was the only victory that either the 214 or 215 ever scored.
