Got a few ‘tobacco conversions’ done recently:
The 1979 Rebaque HR100 was basically a copy of the Lotus 79, constructed for the private Rebaque team and driven by Hector Rebaque. It’s a 1/43 scale Spark model which included the Marlboro decals. As usual from Spark, they went on beautifully, only the helmet visor strip requiring a little softener to wrap around.
1994 Penske PC23, Indianapolis 500 winner with Al Unser Jnr. This is a special Mercedes-Benz release of a long obsolete 1/43 scale diecast model from Minichamps. Marlboro decals had to be sourced aftermarket. The existing Penske markings had to be removed first. Several other flaws were also corrected.
1985 Ligier JS25 (Jacques Laffite), Spark 1/43 scale. Spark provided the ‘E’s to complete the Gitanes signage. The ones for the sidepods were fine, but the ‘E’ for the rear wing was a tad oversize, a problem that Spark has had before when supplying just the missing letters rather than the full logo.
