Ferrari 312F1, Chris Amon, Monaco 1967. MFH 1/12.

Recommended Posts

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.dsc02316.jpgdsc02315.jpgdsc02314.jpgdsc02311.jpgdsc02312.jpgdsc02313.jpg[brdsc02317.jpgdsc02320.jpgdsc02321.jpgdsc02322.jpgdsc02319.jpgdsc02318.jpgdsc02323.jpgdsc02324.jpgdsc02327.jpgdsc02328.jpgdsc02325.jpgdsc02326.jpg

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 :

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:

I’ve modified the throttle linkage.
The White Metal original ones were not that good, so I replaced them with machined parts.

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.

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.
