  1. Hi, Just for fun: DFV Cosworth piston and rod. Voilà. Pascal
  2. Hi, Decals session Once dry they are cleaned as well as the surrounding area. Then holes are done in the decals. More soon. Pascal
  3. Good evening everybody, It’s been quite a long time since my last post...Sorry. Aircrafts can’t wait! Few progress on the Red Roaring Beauty! Riveting the bathtub and the bulkhead is now done. The wooden shifter knob is clear coated and test fitting is mandatory for the engine/cockpit/body subassembly. The fitting holes and the front Ferrari logo area are masked. I had a little « spot » on the Red, so I sanded it and made a touch up. The dampers looked to simple for my taste. I used modified F1 Specialties brass electronic connectors and chemically burnished them, then put a center adjustment screw and finally install the knob on the damper. A Koni decal add a nice looking detail. Aaaaannd, there is a new kid in town! 0.3 flat pattern: tested today and happy with the result😉 voilà. More soon. A last sanding session on the metal body, then: - Primer, - Giallo Modena, - Rosso Corsa. Also started to spray primer on the first 200 metal rivets. 400 left to do... before GM&RC. Few of them will be White. Voilà. More soon. Pascal
  4. Hi, Thank you. I use CA glue and low temp solder. Pascal
  5. Hi, Thank you very much Modelers! I worked a bit on the small metal tanks and others parts that need to be cleaned and polished.[br]Fuel filter/distributor and water expansion tank. I also made a quick test of the pedals on the front bulkhead. Test fit of the rear structure and tank of the Red Roaring Beauty. Battery and coils prepaired, masked and primed. Starting to connecting brakes and fuel pipes. Engine pan scratched. Alfa Rosso ZP on the coils: ... And white (Titanium White GC) for the battery Machined bolting and washers have been installed on the wheels. An old « T » connector is modified and used to complete the front wheels brakes master cylinder. Tanks and tubes installed on the roll bar with serflex & Ty-Raps: Wires ready and waiting for the battery:[br][br] Started to work on the coils: Hi,[br][br]Thanks a lot Mate![br][br]Sanding, welding, riveting...[br][br][br][br][br][br][br][br][br][br]Few And, at least, progress in the “office” area: Paint session, dashboard session and gear lever/selector. I was not that happy with the instruments, so I turned new ones and made brackets from aluminium foil. Then test fitting. Oils and screws added on the steering wheel and, of course, the Cavallino Rampante! Voilà. More soon. Pascal
  6. Hi, I really apologize for very Laaaaaaaaate reply!!☺️ Thanks so much for all your kind comments and for being so patient following this WIP! Pascal
  7. Hi, 😂🤣 Better to have metal to depict metal... sometimes.🙄 Pascal
  8. Hi , It’s been a long time since my last post... A new Formula 1, from 1967 (Great year!) Here are few pics of the engine.[br I was not that happy with the kit throttle linkage... So I decided to build new ones with machined parts from RBMotion. It was also necessary to show a bit of interest regarding the exhaust and prepare the white metal parts of the Spaghetti: To prime and paint them: Other parts are just treated to be left with a natural metal finish: I prefer to solder them instead of gluing for evident reasons: I played a bit with the iron in order to replicate weld seams : The engine connected to the gear box and vice versa, and install for test fit in its compartment: Next to the small 1/20 sister : Rear brake discs before assembly on the gear box: ... and few accessories: Modification of the rear hubs in order to adapt machined parts: Time for primer: The body is drilled in order to be riveted with MFH aluminium rivet: The engine is... big. Almost the size of the 1/20 kit: Rosso Corsa GC and Semi Gloss Black ZP on the rear shocks and the steering wheel. Dull Aluminium (Alclad) on the rear hubs Test fit of the front end: Heat shield adjusted and drilled for the roll cage: Titanium White GC: Not very happy with the Dull Alu, so black Alclad is sprayed: Tubes installed in the radiator and started to work on the rear suspension components: Front brakes scoops are painted white: test fitting of the bathtub: Weld seams on the 3in1 exhaust parts: I really apologize for the poor quality of the pictures... Alclad White Alu and Klear Kote. Paint family picture: Wheels prep & paint session: Primer: Alclad Black: Pale Gold Alclad: Masking off: Time for oils: Test fit of anti roll bar, gearbox and half side transmission. I’ve modified the throttle linkage. The White Metal original ones were not that good, so I replaced them with machined parts. https://i.servimg.com/u/f12/12/38/43/52/99c8dc10.jpg] The mesh over the stacks is now done, and I must admit it was pretty fun to form and install: I’m mot unhappy with the result. Oils have also been applied on the heat shield as well as a portion of aluminium tape on both external sides. I really like the view of the trumpets through the mesh. The rear stab bar has b een remade with 1mm ø brass, which was later chemically burnished. Now working on the connection rods. One started comp ared to raw white metal origi na l part. Voilà. More soon. Pascal
  9. Hi, Stunning P4!! What a shape and what a Car! Bravo! Pascal
  10. Hi Joel, Great work in the Lotus!! Bravo. Pascal
  11. Hi, Yeah! Real race sound for the Mini! Few pics of the '67 1/12 312F1 Pascal
  12. Thank you once again Joel. It’s really a great pleasure to share the WIP with Mates like you! No, unfortunately... not a 1275 Cooper S. Just my beloved Black Beauty Mini 1000 with a stage 1 and a double Maniflow inox (stainless steel) exhaust! The Type 49 will have to wait for the 1/12 1967 Chris Amon Monaco 312F1 to be finished. I’ve also started a M19 and a Lotus Type 43 powered with the BRM H16 engine... Pascal
  13. Thank you very much for all the kind comments Joel. The intakes installed on the engine are not so shiny than the ones used to show the mesh which are in fact the MFH parts I'm not working with. I widely prefer the, now extremely rare, Widia Models intakes which are made of a more dull aluminium. I also have those highly polished race mirrors on my..... Mini! (The real one, the Austin, not the BMW...) The MFH tool for the tyres ring is a must have as the (beautiful) decals are just impossible to install correctly, I mean I'm not able to lay them down on the tires with a nice circular result! But it's not so easy to use that great tool and I must admit that my Blue Circle Line is a bit to thick for my taste. Here we are! The Roaring Papaya is finished. Mat black after masking: Windshield is installed with 0.7 resin rivets. Mirrors, Dzus and metal rivets of the front hatch are also now done. Few more pics of the car undressed. And others with "clothes" on! Voilà! I hope this wip was plesant for you. As usual, comments and remarks are welcome. Thanks a lot once again for your interest and being so patient. Pascal
  14. Hi, Thank you very much CaptainObvious Small addon to the Red Beauty.: MFH Pilot Gear. Pascal
