The color scheme was changed to blue in a later series for these cars... hence why your body was blue.

 

frats,

Rosco

Hi Rosco, I think that you will find that the team cars were red in 1966, and then changed to "Papaya" orange in 1967 and beyond. While a few "customer" cars were certainly blue, the team cars did not run in blue..

Strombecker molding one in blue has little bearing on reality, they produced Chaparrals' in both red and yellow :D

 

Cheers

Thanks Chris - all news to me.... I became a Wiki expert after reading two paragraphs.... as many Wiki experts become.

I suspect, the available material stock may for the molding machine may have had a great influence on color... some models, the colour had to be almost correct... who could imagine a boxed "British Racing Green" Mini in anything but dark green.... 

Today, most models are painted... the substrate really doesn't have any bearing in colour choice... 

 

Model looks great, Chris.. so, what is the next one on the list?

 

frats,

Rosco
